A theatrical ghost story adventure

Whistle And I’ll Come To You: A theatrical ghost story adventure


Photo by Theuns VerwoerdThe unique interactive theatre project Whistle and I’ll Come to You will be performed on 22-25 May at Ferrymead Heritage Park at 8.30pm. Inspired by M.R. James's classical Victorian ghost story, it will offer the audience a bit of adventure and mystery.

... Miss Blanche, a school teacher and amateur archaeologist, visits an English seaside town for her winter break. A string of strange events and experiences lead her to a terrifying discovery...

Written and produced by Nataliya Oryshchuk (NO Productions Theatre) and Kim Georgine (Cat House Films), the show will be performed in The Lodge Hall at Ferrymead Heritage Park, a perfect match for the mood of the story. The international cast and crew includes actors Michael Adams, Sophie Rea, and stage designer Ailise O’Neill. Unlike the original story, Oryshchuk's and Georgine's version features a female protagonist offering a perfect example of "female Gothic" which adds emotional depth to the narrative.

This immersive theatrical experience will include a pre-show ghost walk around the grounds of the Edwardian township. Participants will need to be dressed for an adventure, not for a standard night at the theatre! Sensible shoes and a raincoat would help - who knows what's lurking out there in the cold dark autumn night...

“Ferrymead Heritage Park coupled with a classical ghost story is a winning combination” – says the producer, writer and actress Nataliya Oryshchuk – “Expect some weird and wonderful things to happen!”

Each night the audience number will be strictly limited to 30, and the tickets will available pre-sale only. The ticket price includes tea and light refreshments served as part of the show.

Due to the nature of the show, PG 13 is recommended.
Tickets: $40 unwaged/ $45 waged. To book, email book.disaster@gmail.com

The project is supported by Creative Communities and the Christchurch City Council.
