Musical and Motion Picture Plots

film, Ghost. It captured the hearts and minds of moviegoers in 1990 with a story of love, loss and the afterlife. Ghost The
Musical did not attempt to reinvent the wheel with its adaptation of the original script. Bruce Joel Rubin, the original Academy
Award-winning screenwriter adapted the film for its stage performance. Audiences can also expect to enjoy an original pop
score by Dave Steward and Glen Ballard, winners of multiple Grammy Awards. The story is about a young couple, Sam and Molly,
who share a profound connection and love. The couple's time is cut short following the heartbreaking and untimely death of
Sam. At first, unknowingly to Molly, Sam finds himself lost between two realms. He refuses to leave his one and only Molly,
who he promised to always love and protect without the caveat of death. He learned that she was in danger and was determined
to protect her. In an effort to reach out to her, he seeks the assistance of a psychic to help him communicate with Molly.
