GHOSTLY goings-on at a Gloucester theatre are set to come to life in a new production next month.

The Kings Theatre is setting the stage for a production of The Haunting of Hill House to coincide with the 50th anniversary of the original film, The Haunting, released back in 1963.

Amateur theatre group The Crown Players are putting on the play at the theatre, which some people claim is haunted itself.

Alex Tomlins, from the amateur dramatics group, said: "The theatre itself is allegedly haunted, but we're not expecting the ghost to put in an appearance.

"We are very excited to be bringing this film to life on stage here in Gloucester."

The play tells the story of paranormal investigator Dr Montague who heads to Hill House which is set in a remote location and has laid empty for many years.

A series of chilling, horrifying occurrences start to occur which Dr Montague and his trusty assists have to deal with.

The play runs at the theatre, in Kings Barton Street, from October 16 to 19.

The group is rehearsing for the show every Tuesday and Thursday in the run up to its first performance at the venue which is regularly used by a variety of amateur theatre groups.

Tickets are £8 and £7 for concessions and are available by calling 01452 721745.

People can also pick up their tickets by visiting the Tourist Information Centre in Southgate Street.
