Cuesta College’s Original production: Ghost Ship, is the most unique pieces of theatre I’ve ever experienced. It was recently selected to compete in the Kennedy Center American College Theatre Festival for national awards, and I can see why. This voyage is immersive, imaginative, and downright terrifying. I don’t want to reveal much about the plot because, personally, I found that the bit of information that I knew going into it detracted from the experience. What I can say is that the actors were all at the top of their games, the lighting was flawless, and I could tell how much hard work and imagination that went into creating their extraordinary effects, costumes, and sets.
This show is absolutely stunning and kept me on the edge of my seat (well, it was more of a bench. You’ll see.) for the entirety of it’s jam packed half hour. Take into consideration that this show is not for the faint of heart and does have some strong language. For the thrill-seeking theatregoer, this is a perfect show. There are only 16 spots on each passage, so make sure to get your tickets soon! The show will be running through February 9th, with tickets still available here.
