A Comedy about Ghosts, Newlyweds, a Guardian Angel and a Meddling Mother-in-law trying to live together in a haunted cottage. Cobbler’s Cottage is haunted by Susie Cameron and her husband, Jack, who in life, was a successful author. Annoyed to find themselves victims of a tragic accident, their ghosts have taken up residence in their former cottage. To ensure their privacy, all interested tenants have been scared away -- much to the distraction of Mark Webster, the estate agent trying to sell the property. Things are about to change however, with the arrival of a young married couple awaiting the birth of their first child. The ghosts take a shine to the newcomers and perhaps all can live happily -- if a Meddling Mother-in-law and a befuddled Guardian Angel can be got out of the way.

Enjoy a buffet style lunch that includes Chicken Kiev, Roast Loin of Pork, and Country Sausage with Sauerkraut as entrees; a salad bar; and a number of options for sides. Cost is $60.00 (includes transportation, buffet lunch, tax, gratuity, and theater ticket).
