PCT's "Ghost the Musical' evokes emotions and memories


PALESTINE — Meet the Writer/Composer

For the first time in PCT history, a writer/composer will be in attendance for his/her own show at the Texas Theater.

“Ghost: The Musical” writer/composer William Allen Jones, co-founder of P&J Productions, P&J Theater Works and Footbridge Films, will be come see the PCT’s version of “Ghost: The Musical” during two performances on the last weekend, April 5-6.

“We’ve never had a writer/composer come see our show,” Sandy said. “We are so excited to have him come here and invite everyone to come meet him.”

A special wine and cheese reception will be held at 6:30 p.m. Saturday, April 6 before the 7:30 p.m. performance.

Paranormal Investigation

A few months before the show opened, the PCT invited the Sonshine Paranormal Investigators of Fort Worth to do a paranormal investigation at the old theater to tie in not only with the upcoming production, but to investigate noises and other things people had reported happening at the theater. On Feb. 23, the Sonshine team held a “reveal” of its paranormal finding.

“We had over 100 people attend the reveal — it was packed, I wasn’t expecting that many. I think there were a lot of people who were inquisitive about it,” Sandy said.

The investigators captured a fairly clear photo of a young boy sitting in the balcony and some images of possible paranormal entities in the green room, as well as relaying a story about a laser grid fading in and out, Sandy said, among other findings.

“I saw the laser grid doing what it was doing and there was no question to me what was happening, but you had to be there to experience it,” Sandy said. “We even incorporated the laser lights for the show.”

The Sonshine Paranormal Investigators attended the opening night production as special guests.
