The Media Theatre's cast of "Ghost: The Musical" had a pleasant surprise Wednesday February 11 as they became the first professional Broadway Series cast to rehearse at the theatre's new School and Dance Studio. 

The 28 West State Street location in Media, PA--to be used also for classes beginning in the spring--is the perfect spot to rehearse the contemporary and classic musicals Media Music Theatre Company is known for.

With new mirrors surrounding the largest dance studio in the new space, which has a shining floor specifically designed for actors and dancers, The Media Theatre's School and Dance Studio provides a refreshing state-of-the-art space for the actors who come to Media as the rehearsal process takes place. 

There is also a smaller mirrored room for private lessons, plus a piano room for vocal and keyboard lessons, two restrooms, a waiting area, and a kitchenette for actors and patrons.

"Ghost: The Musical" will rehearse at The Studio through February 18 when the production moves to The Media Theatre to prepare for its run March 4-29. 

The School and Dance Studio will have a grand opening this spring, eventually offering classes in Acting, various genres of Dance, as well as Voice, Piano, Guitar, and more.

Artistic Director Jesse Cline said, "The new Studio represents a new era for Media Music Theatre Company and The Media Theatre. It allows actors to rehearse in a space that is really their own, without distraction. The space will provide unique opportunities for expanding our education programs for all ages, our summer camps, even our focus on music from vocals to instrumental lessons. We will expand in 'steps', learning more about our students and patrons as we grow, becoming knowledgeable about where the interest is and expand from there."

Cline continued, "We are happy to be in the midst of State Street's restaurant row as well, so that our students and patrons will be able to enjoy all that Media has to offer, becoming an even more viable part of the economic health of the borough."

As for the "Ghost"actors, they are more than happy to be the first professional cast to rehearse in the new Studio on State Street. "This is awesome," said Megan Rucidlo, cast member and Media Theatre New School choreographer. "It's like a piece of New York City right here in Media. This is going to be great!"

"Ghost: The Musical" is based on the extremely popular film from 1990. With a book by Bruce Joel Rubin and music from the Eurythmics' Dave Stewart, with assistance from Glen Ballard, the show maintains its narrative focus on Sam and Molly, the two lovers who are attacked upon returning home one evening causing Sam's untimely demise. An eccentric medium does what she can to help Sam get back in touch with his dear Molly. The show, like the film, is a touching tribute to eternal love.

"Ghost: The Musical" plays March 4-29 at The Media Theatre.
