Ritz Theatre Company Presents The World Premiere of "The Ghosts of Ravenswood Manor"

(HADDON TOWNSHIP, NJ) -- The Ritz Theatre Company presents the World Premiere of The Ghosts of Ravenswood Manor by Kumar Dari. Performances take place September 12-29. In this new comedy, Lady Lillian Sappington has decided to turn the historic Ravenswood Manor into a hunting lodge, but first she must take care of one thing -- she believes it's haunted! 

She invites her family and eclectic friends to dinner to discuss some strange occurrences, when suddenly only one word is heard: "Murder!"

The evening discussion moves from mild insinuation to heated inquisition and mayhem as they try to decipher the messages they continue to receive from the spirit world in The Ghosts of Ravenswood Manor.

"I know the Ritz audiences will enjoy the trip with these characters," said Kumar Dari. "They'll enjoy the laughs throughout the show, whether verbal, physical, or character driven. I’ve always had an affinity for all things British and wanted to capture that British “voice” in my writing this time. The Ritz audiences always appreciate a show that has unique, interesting characters. They enjoy shows with both verbal and physical humor, which in this show are in ample supply."

If our audiences enjoy this show a fraction of how much we’re enjoying producing it, we’ll have a royal hit!”
