Paul Kemp and Others Return to Ghost Stories at the Arts Theatre
Cast Members Reprising Their Roles in the Hit West End Horror from September 2014
It has been known for some time that Ghost Stories would be returning to the Arts Theatre at the end of September, following its break that began in August, and now it has been revealed which cast members will be taking to the stage.
Paul Kemp is set to return to the show, following his appearance during the previous Arts Theatre run that lasted from February to August this year, and he will appear alongside Simon Holmes, Paul Kendrick, Chris Levens, Alexander Nicolaou, Gary Shelford and Mark Starr.
Though much of its story is kept under wraps – lest the surprise be ruined – audiences can expect plenty of scares when they pick up theatre tickets to Ghost Stories. The show features three spooky tales that combine great performances with atmospheric sounds and horrifying special effects with great results.
It originally ran at the Lyric Hammersmith and transferred to the Duke of York’s Theatre from 2010 to 2011. Beyond these London productions it has also been seen in other venues on these shores and abroad, continuing to attract audiences who have heard that it is one of the scariest shows in town.
It is the work of The League Of Gentlemen’s Jeremy Dyson and magician Andy Nyman, the latter of whom appears in Assassins at the Menier Chocolate Factory later this year. Dyson is a writing (but non-performing) member of the mentioned dark comedy team and, with Steve Pemberton, Mark Gatiss and Reece Shearsmith, has worked on an array of projects like the radio and television series The League Of Gentlemen, plus the movie The League Of Gentlemen’s Apocalypse. Andy Nyman, meanwhile, regularly works alongside the well known Derren Brown.
Meanwhile, actor Paul Kemp has appeared in the likes of To Sir With Love on a national tour, The Wind in the Willows at the West Yorkshire Playhouse and The Crucible at the Regent’s Park Open Air Theatre, among others. He has also appeared onscreen in the likes of Life On Mars, Doctors and The Trial Of Tony Blair.
Following the appearance of Denise Van Outen’s one-woman show Some Girl I Used To Know, Ghost Stories returns to the Arts Theatre from Sunday 21st September 2014.
