Ghosts are haunting the woods of Ontario and Alice Wimbley – avid ghost hunter and disgruntled Tim Hortons employee - is going to prove it! Armed with her recorders and a crew consisting of her skeptical friend, her sardonic sister, and her paranormally-inclined cousin, Alice boldly treks into the deep forest determined to get the spirits on tape. She’s finally found the perfect place to investigate when suddenly a terrified deer hunter bursts on the scene. There’s definitely something strange and scary in these woods, but Alice and her friends are about to find more than they bargained for. This adventure turns up few ghosts but lots of laughs. A sharp and spirited new comedy, suitable for a general audience.

Awesome Ghosts of Ontario was first produced by Regina Little Theatre, Regina, Saskatchewan (Nora Berg, Artistic Director; Angel Genereux, Producer) on April 25, 2008. It was directed by Kevin Rispler.

CASTING NOTES

There is some flexibility here with the ages of the characters. Alice, Jessie and Evan should be somewhere in their late teens. Hannah and Grover could be teenagers or a little older, though under 30 probably works best.

CHORUS SIZE

No Chorus

ALICE -  about 19, enthusiastic, driven, energetic, and very sincere in her aims
JESSIE - about 17, smart and witty, sarcastic but not mean-spirited
EVAN - about 19, an easygoing guy who's game for adventure, though he's burned out on this one
HANNAH - late teens to early 20s, cheerful and oblivious, in her own world and happy to be there
GROVER - in his early 20s, a regular guy out for a day of deer hunting
