‘Ghostchasers’ arrives in time for Halloween

ALLEN PARK – The Creative Characters and the Parks and Recreation Department will present Tim Kelly’s family-friendly play, “Ghostchasers,” at 7 p.m. Oct. 23 and 2:30 and 7 p.m. Oct. 24. at the Allen Park Auditorium,16850 Southfield Road.

     Producers say the 90-minute show features 27 different roles performed by local rising stars. When an electrical storm forces Harriet Hollyhock’s plane to land in Hangtown, she decides to visit her famous cousin, Dr. Horace Roy, who operates an asylum for extremely nervous patients.  However, an earthquake jolt has freed a poltergeist, and it’s creating dangerous mischief. Harriet calls the Ghostchasers, led by Honcho, who is loaded with an arsenal of kooky weapons. If the nasty ghost wasn’t trouble enough, the patients have locked up the staff, and no one can tell who’s who.

     Tickets for the show are $8, and are available at the community center and at the auditorium prior to performances.
