CANTERVILLE GHOST
is a musical based on the Oscar Wilde novella by the same name. Set in the 1920s, it is the tale of a young American family moving into a medieval English manor haunted by a fine and respectable ghost of the grand tradition; an expert performer and master of his craft. Unfortunately for the ghost, modern American sensibility leaves little room for such nonsense as haunting.

The story maintains the subtle wit and dry humor of the Wilde original by introducing a new character based on Oscar Wilde himself. With a score of more than twenty original songs that span from jazz to pop to Broadway, it’s a musical brimming with contradictions—comedy and drama. It plays liberally with American and British customs, politics, and age-old stereotypes, lampooning both countries to riotous effect.
