The Ghost Train is a comedy/thriller dubbed as one of the world’s scariest plays. The plot revolves around a party of assorted railway travellers who find themselves stranded in the waiting room of an isolated country train station late one evening. The station master tries to persuade them to leave the site as he is closing the station for the night. They refuse to leave, citing the lack of alternative accommodation for several miles around. He warns them of the supernatural danger of a spectral old railway carriage train, the ghost of one that was fatally wrecked in the locality several years before that, sometimes haunts the line at night bringing death to all who set eyes upon it. Incredulous of his story, they still refuse to leave, and he departs leaving them facing a night at the station.

30 April, 1st, 2 May and 7 – 9 May 2020.  All performances to be held at St Jude’s Hall, 444 Brighton Road, Brighton 5048

Who Are St Jude’s Players?

St Jude’s Players Inc is a community theatre group consisting of volunteers operating out of a church hall in Brighton, a suburb of Adelaide, South Australia. Although the Players are loosely affiliated with, and the group was formed by, members of St Jude’s, today membership is open to everyone who has an interest in quality community theatre.

The Players usually put on three full-length productions a year, and they can include comedies, dramas and musicals. Although the hall is not large (it seats about 180 people), on occasions we can raise the roof! Naturally, occasions for eating and drinking figure prominently throughout the year.
