Who Ya Gonna Call?: GHOSTBUSTERS Live Script Read

Relive the early days of everyone’s favourite ghost removal service as the award-winning Middle Child theatre company stage a one-off live reading of the script to GHOSTBUSTERS.

Presented by Dead of Night Hull Horror Film Festival, the 1984 classic movie gets the Middle Child treatment, as approved by Sony Pictures Entertainment Inc, Dan Aykroyd and Harold Ramis’ Estate!

Part-rehearsal, part-radio play, part-TED Talk on acid, you’re in for a unique live experience as the popular theatre company behind Fruit’s alternative pantomime turn their hand to a classic of Saturday morning cinema.

Originally starring Dan Aykroyd, Harold Ramis, Bill Murray, Ernie Hudson, Signorney Weaver, Rick Moranis and Annie Potts and directed by Ivan Reitman, GHOSTBUSTERS follows the adventures of three misfit parapsychology research professors as they work to save New York City from supernatural occurrences.

Middle Child are a Hull-based company creating gig theatre that brings people together for a good night out with big ideas. They tell untold stories which capture the electrifying moment when the beat drops, mixing original live music with bold new writing. Middle Child events are live and loud, making sense of the modern world.

Their Hull UK City of Culture 2017 production, All We Ever Wanted Was Everything, won multiple awards and played to sold out audiences at this year’s Edinburgh Fringe.
