Ghost the Musical will play Her Majesty's Theatre in Melbourne, Australia in August 2013, according to a report on the website for the UK magazine, The Stage. Matthew Warchus will direct, with choreography by Ashley Wallen. Casting will be announced at a later date.

With music and lyrics by Dave Stewart and Glen Ballard, and a book by Bruce Joel Rubin, the show tells the story of a man who is trapped as a ghost between this world and the next and who is trying to communicate with his girlfriend through a phony psychic in the hope of saving her from his murderer.

The score includes the iconic song "Unchained Melody," famously performed in the film by The Righteous Brothers.

Ghost is currently playing the West End's Piccadilly Theatre, and as previously reported, will open on Broadway at the Lunt Fontanne Theater, on April 23, 2012.
