About The Canterville Ghost

  • Sir Simon Canterville has haunted his ancestral home since 1584. The only way of breaking the curse he is under for his past wrongdoings is to be befriended by a young girl who would set him free to go to heaven. But he is too scary to make friends, and so the ghost gives up and enjoys frightening generations of the Canterville family. That is until the American Otis family buys the house . The Americans rather enjoy teasing the Ghost and this makes the Ghost furious at first, before he instead becomes despondent at the idea of having no friends and no respect either. But the eldest daughter in the family, 15 year old Virginia, is sweet and brave. She takes pity and agrees to enter his ghost world to set him free. When she comes back she tells the story of Sir Simon. She and the young Duke of Cheshire marry but Virginia keeps her secret of the night she went missing and the Ghost is at peace at last. 

  • First performed back in 2005, this is the first revival of the late David Fielding's choreography, which playfully brings to life Oscar Wilde's novella. Set against the backdrop of the roaring 20s, this is a wonderful and witty show for all the family, exploring friendship, forgiveness and redemption. It is on from 19th-22nd April at the Peacock Theatre.
