Meet the Cast of Ghost: The Musical Before it Hits Blackpool!

Before Ghost: The Musical opens at the Blackpool Winter Gardens we need to get you more acquainted with its stars!

Production shots have just been released, and we have ’em! But we’ll try to give you a more personal look at the stars and celebs appearing in Bill Kenwright’s new production too!

MOLLY – Sarah Harding


Sarah Harding, the Sarah Harding from Girls Aloud, is taking on the role of ‘Molly’.

Girls Aloud, in their time, at 20 consecutive top ten singles, Sarah herself was also in the movie St. Trinian’s 2: The Legend of Fritton’s Gold, but this is her first foray into musical acting.

Here she is answering some ‘spooky’ questions from bizarre:

She also appeared in a series of The Jump  on ITV but injury forced for out early.

SAM – Andy Moss


If we’re looking for beautiful people, and Sarah Harding wasn’t enough for you, then ex-Hollyoaks star Andy Moss is your man.

Basically, our two main leads wouldn’t look out of place in the display at a calendar shop in The Trafford Centre.

Aside from Hollyoaks, Andy has been in Doctors and also, surprisingly, fronts a rock band called Empire.

ODA MAE – Jacqui Dubois


Most of Jacqui Dubois considerable experience comes from stage, and from the world of musicals.

The list of her shows is huge, let’s give you the highlights: Little Shop of Horrors, Rent, Carousel, Wizard of Oz, Fame, Lion King, The Harder They Come and a J.F.K musical, of all things.

The part of Ode Mae Brown was originally taken by Whoopi Goldberg in the movie, a character that acts as a spiritual adviser, communicating with Ghosts.

CARL – Sam Ferriday


Sam is no stranger to a good musical.

He was part of Jersey Boys, where he played ‘Bob Gaudio’. Here’s a lovely pic him and the lads:

He has a ton of theatre credits, such as: Dick Whittington, an All Male HMS Pinafore and The Blue Man Group, and a few on TV too. Even playing the dwarf ‘Grumpy’ at at one point.

Want to see him doing an impression of ‘Bat Dad’, course you do!


WILLIE – Leo Sene

Leo Sene is another cast member with a great up and coming career in musical theatre and on the wider stage. He’s already been ‘Max Kellerman’ in A Night Of Dirty Dancing, ‘Huey Phillips’ in Loserville, ‘Puck’ in A Midsummer Night’s Dream and ‘Tom’ in Lovebites.

Here’s you man in the Hound of the Baskervilles:

HOSPITAL GHOST – James Earl Adair

We all member Watch, right?

Well, that was James Earl Adair back then, but these days he’s staring in Ghost as the Hospital Ghost, first played by Phil Leeds in the movie.

Previously he’s worked in incredibly well-received stage production like The Elephant Man and Return To The Forbidden Planet. 

One fan was pretty chuffed to meet both him and Andy Moss after the show.

SUBWAY GHOST – Gary Lee Netley

Here he is alongside Lee and James.

If we can say anything it’s that Gary is a decent dancer. A Graduate of the Urdang Academy, he can do Commercial, Street, Contemporary, Jazz and Pas de Deux.

And Missy Elliot…

LOUISE & CLARA – Tarisha Romick & Simbi Akande


The parts of Oda Mae’s sisters, the role of backing up Jacqui Dubois’ medium, have fallen to Tarisha Romick and Simbi Akande.

Tarisha is playing ‘Louise’, and Simbi Akande is ‘Clara’.

Simbi has been involved in plenty of shows during her training at the Mountview Academy of Arts, but Showboat, in 2016, was her West End debut. it received rave reviews.

Here she is with the cast at the time:
