Drumheller's Kaleidoscope Theatre has just wrapped up another production for this winter season. This time it was a tale of love and ghostly spirits.

"The play centres around Hazel, who comes to Canada to work for her second cousin in his sawmill. So, as the story progresses, Hazel and James fall in love," explained President of the Kaleidoscope Theatre, Ashley Turner. "Hazel starts to be haunted by the ghost of James' first wife. The play revolves around whether or not if the ghost is trying to warn Hazel about James, or is she just a jealous spirit?"

The ghostly part of the play was well done as Turner says she heard many audience members gasp and jump in fright.

"I would say roughly we had around 20 to 30 people each night, and for a show that is not very well known, I would say that is very well attended," continued Turner.

Tuner spurred on the idea of The Kaleidoscope Theatre producing the play after seeing it many years ago, and she is very glad she did.

"I saw it a few years ago at another theatre company. I thought it would be a great play for us to produce here. I found the playwright and her agent and we licenced the script for production," concluded Turner.

Next up for the theatre is Sister Act: The Musical, that will be on stage later this summer.
