Family-friendly ghost story hits Busselton stage

Busselton Dunsborough Times

A family-friendly ghost story will be the theme of the Busselton Repertory Club’s new play.

Directed by Margaret Sanft, The Haunted Through Lounge and Recessed Dining Nook at Farndale Castle is a play which defines itself by its title.

Sanft said audiences will be treated to a hilarious ghost story presented by the ladies of the Farndale Townswomen’s Guild.

“From the very first moment, the play will carry you along with strange happenings like flying Tupperware boxes and cats that sound very much like chickens,” she said.

“There is a scene of murder and mayhem, which is also family friendly.”

This was a play that had Sanft in stitches from the first time she read the script and still had her laughing through rehearsals at the inventiveness of the cast and crew.

“Three of the cast are new faces on stage who will become firm favourites of our Busselton Dunsborough audiences,” she said.

Sanft said it was the ideal play for first-timers to come and watch to enjoy the excitement only live theatre could supply.

The run of eight shows starts at Weld Theatre on Thursday and finishes on May 4.

Tickets are available from Callows newsagency or by calling Marj Evans on 9752 1657.
