Prince Moo Productions presents "Ghost Stories" running at Her Majesty's Theatre from July 15th-16th at 8:00pm. Directed and Produced by Peter J Snee, it starts out with a professor giving a lecture using a projector and asking questions. He makes it clear to the audience that even though at least half of them believe in ghosts, only a small portion have had an experience they can't explain. He goes on to try and convince the audience that it's more the mind playing tricks or a camera with extra exposure that shows something that isn't really there, or is it?

Written by Andy Nyman & Jeremy Dyson, the show plays out four very different experiences and then plays them all into the same story. One gentleman is working late at night as a security guard and sees a young girl calling out, but when he turns she isn't there. He walks into a room and sees a mannequin spin a complete 360 turn without any wind. The professor doesn't think this is an encounter as much as his mind playing tricks on him.

He doesn't sleep and his daughter has been in a coma for 4 years and he's stopped visiting her, but the next day he goes to see her. Now was this because he saw his daughter's ghost or because he felt guilty, because he heard 'daddy' in his head and realised it has been over 4 years since he had seen her? Whatever the reason, on this day, she wakes up from a 4-year coma.

Co Director Jennifer Sarah Dean said "Before this production, I thought there was no greater feeling than being able to make the audience laugh, but having been a part of this production I have found a new love, hearing an audience scream."

Starring Stuart Brennan as Dr. Goodman, Richard Moss as Tony Matthews, Matthew Connell as Simon Rifkind, Brian Markey as Mike Priddle and Jonathan Peck as Desi Callahan.

There are four stories, each unlike the one before, and a twist at the end that ties it all together. This show was quite interesting and unlike anything I've seen before, but if you like to be scared and believe things aren't always what they seem, then this is the show for you.
