BALTIMORE (WJZ) — It’s the box office smash that starred Patrick Swayze and Demi Moore. Now it hits the stage as “Ghost The Musical.” WJZ gets a behind-the-scenes exclusive.

Linh Bui finds out what makes this show so special.

We are backstage at “Ghost The Musical.” You might know the story, but the special effects? You’ve never seen anything like it.

A famous love story brought to the stage. Sam, trapped between two worlds, tries to protect his girlfriend, Molly, and avenge his untimely death. He has the help of psychic Oda Mae Brown.

Baltimore-born Robby Haltiwanger plays their friend, Carl.

“It’s a love story that anyone can relate to. And because, whether or not you have seen the movie, you will really, really connect to the characters on the stage,” Haltiwanger said.

Only WJZ got a backstage tour. There’s costumes and wigs, and props–like Molly’s pottery wheel from the iconic scene between Demi Moore and Patrick Swayze.

But what sets this show apart? The special effects will amaze you. A big illusion is when Sam walks through a solid door. How they pull it off is a secret that’s stumped even world famous magicians.

“David Copperfield came to see the show and he asked our illusionist, ‘How is this possible? I don’t know how you did this,'” said Andrew Bacigalupo, assistant stage manager.

With the music and the magic, Ghost gets a new life.

The show runs through Sunday, April 13. Tickets are still available.
