Set in a post-apocalyptic war society, this daring adaptation of William Shakespeare's Othello features radical cuts and mildly modernized language to tell the story of the noble Moor. Ghost Players Theatre's version maintains the wonderfully poetic rhythm, blatant thuggery and deceitful deeds of the original as Othello's life and marriage topple at the hands of his trusted advisor. One of the most compelling villains ever written, Iago draws Othello and the audience into his spider's web of half-truths. Horrified and enthralled, you can't help but be fascinated by him, even as he transforms love into hate and happiness into misery. Learn More

This revamped version of Sally Spectre The Musical, David P. Johnson’s multiple award-winning one-act show, is timed perfectly to run during the upcoming Halloween season. With a new cast featuring Justine Huxley as the charming child-ghost victim of a crazed hatchet murderer in New Orleans circa 1850, this new production is also proud to have Los Angeles and New York veteran and Lucile Lortel nominated Director/Choreographer Janet Miller at the helm.
Creator David P. Johnson sums up the story: An irreverent musical about the ghost of a little girl who attempts to reconcile her own death by confronting the things that she fears most. Little Sally’s time in the comfort of her self-created purgatory, which is becoming increasingly disturbing, is starting to slip away. With a little guidance from an unlikely and unexpected host of sources, she must find the path that will lead her a more peaceful ending.
