There are many familiar faces on stage for a classic comedy thriller at St George’s Theatre in Great Yarmouth tonight (Friday) and tomorrow.

Arnold Ridley’s Ghost Train – dubbed the world’s scariest play, is on June 19 and 20 and tells the story of a group of travellers, including a newlywed couple, an estranged couple, a self-indulgent young dandy and an elderly spinster with a parrot.

They are all left stranded in the waiting room of an isolated railway station on a dark and stormy night, and react with various degrees of credulity to the stationmaster’s warning of death to anyone who sets eyes on the ghostly train that haunts the line.

The play stars Jeffrey Holland (Hi-de-Hi!, You Rang, M’Lord?, Oh, Doctor Beeching!); Corrine Wicks (Doctors, Emmerdale), Tom Butcher (The Bill, Doctors); Sophie Powles (Emmerdale); Judy Buxton (General Hospital, On the Up) and David Janson (Get Some In!, ‘Allo ‘Allo!, Keeping Up Appearances.

Tickets are £17.50, concessions £16.50. As usual theatre friends receive £1 off all tickets (up to four per night).
