Audiences Love "The Ghost Train" at Centenary

(HACKETTSTOWN, NJ) -- Critics and audiences are raving over Centenary Stage Company’s production of Arnold Ridley’s The Ghost Train which continues its run now through October 20 in the Lackland Performing Arts Center.  First produced in 1925 and filmed no less than three times, The Ghost Train was a long running success in London and on Broadway. In Maine, near the Canadian border, there’s a legend of a phantom locomotive sweeping through a peaceful village, leaving death in its wake. Despite a psychic station master’s weird stories of a ghost train, the six stranded passengers decide to say the night.

“From this point the story has as many twists as an alpine road. To go further in a plot description will spoil the ‘fun.’ Note that this a perfect date event since hand holding may by required during many of the chilling moments… The Ghost Train will keep you on the edge of your seat.” says Rick Busciglio of New Jersey footlights.

Directed by Centenary Stage Company’s own award-winning Artistic Director Carl Wallnau, hailed as “a master of thrillers” by New Jersey Footlights. The Ghost Train features new and returning professional talent from across the tri-state area. Wallnau has directed numerous productions at CSC including world premieres of Inventing Montana, The Tillie Project and The Poetry of Pizza, as well as, several American and New Jersey premieres. Wallnau has been cited for outstanding direction in productions of Springtime for Henry and Quartermaines Terms. Wallnau’s extensive acting credits include work at numerous regional theatres including Paper Mill Playhouse, Second Stage in NYC, People’s Light, The Lark Theatre, The Pennsylvania Shakespeare Festival, Hartford Stage, Bristol Riverside, Forum Theatre, Premiere Stages, Orlando Shakespeare Company, Arts Center of Coastal Carolina, Foothills Playhouse and 14 months on the road with the First National Tour of Titanic. Wallnau received his MFA from Rutgers University Mason Gross School of the Arts.
