If you're looking for glamour, go somewhere else. But if you're just looking for a fun, casual time, this venue is great.

We ate at the Mexican restaurant across the street before the show. It was good, although a little slow since it was packed. There is a bar and grill nearby and an Italian restaurant.

Description

Set in the late 1890s, Lost Spirit is a ghost story that takes audiences on a journey with a soul who has not moved into the “light.” Loved ones return to help, but are sometimes detoured by spirits from the “dark” side. Romance springs forth with new life and proves that “love” can conquer all. This production marks the world premiere of the show.

The musical stars Dale Kristien and Bill Hutton, featuring Sean McNabb. Kristien performed the lead role of “Christine” in the Broadway and Los Angeles productions of Phantom of the Opera. Hutton earned a Tony Award nomination for his performance as “Joseph” in the Broadway production of Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat. They are regulars on the Grove Theatre stage. McNabb is a bassist who has played with such groups as Quiet Riot and Great White.

Directed by Rudy Tronto (Tony Award nominee for Broadway’s Sugar Babies starring Ann Miller and Mickey Rooney). Music, lyrics, book and costuming by the Emmy-nominated team of Jerry Skeels and Randy McLaughlin. Assistant direction and choreography by Terry Barto, who has directed and choreographed many productions up and down the west coast and and has worked on productions ranging from Opryland (working with Minnie Pearl) to Radio City in New York to Princess Cruiselines.  Produced by George Newberry and Randy McLaughlin.

This show is appropriate for all ages.
