When an avaricious property developer tries to take over an old Australian guest house, she discovers that it is haunted by a variety of ghosts from its past. These include the original owner, who, with the help of some of the other guests, sets out to save the house from demolition.
Wonderful lyrics to songs, great characters and the opportunity for strong choreography and dance pieces that reflect the range of Australian history.
First produced in 1997 by Moss Vale and Bowral High Schools. An excellent piece for a large-scale end-of-year production.
"The script bubbles along with great good humour while still dealing with some serious issues like progress versus heritage and personal gain versus community benefit."—Southern Highlands News
