Synopsis

For three centuries, the Canterville Ghost has been perfectly happy rattling chains, clanking armor and generally haunting Canterville. Enter the Otis family – Yankee upstarts with thoroughly modern ideas. Frightening these nonplussed American tenants proves to be not only infuriating but almost impossible for the temperamental British ghost. Yet, through the courageous friendship of one of the young Otis children, the Canterville Ghost finally finds peace. Oscar Wilde’s tale is told with whimsical humor and charm.

“High-spirited Americans take a good natured shot at the British stiff-upper-lip in…The Canterville Ghost.” –Country Messenger, Stillwater MN
