St Matthew’s Theatrical Society in Rastrick is joining forces with Phoenix Players in Batley for its next venture.

The two societies will present the classic play “The Ghost Train”, by Arnold Ridley, at St Matthew’s Parish Centre, Church Street, Rastrick, later this month.

The story surrounds a group of travellers stranded at a bleak railway station in Cornwall, where mysterious happenings occur.

There are many twists in the story and plenty of laughs along the way.

Phoenix Players were based at Batley Business and Enterprise College, where they performed many plays over the years.  

St Matthew’s has an established theatre group.

Chairman Iain Bedson said joining together for this production works well for both groups, who share many talented actors,

Phoenix Players hope their loyal patrons will stay with them and come along to Rastrick to see the show.

Iain said: “‘The Ghost Train’ is a great choice of play with humour and drama, with a large cast which includes members from both groups, together with some new faces.”

The show will be performed on Wednesday, July 30, Friday, August 1, and Saturday, August 2.
