The narrative of Beetlejuice revolves around Betelgeuse, a demon who works as a bio-exorcist, and his pursuit to reenter the world of the living. Betelgeuse perceives a chance to get what he wants when Barbara and Adam Maitland fall through the floor of their beloved home. If these recently deceased can get a living human to repeat his name three times, he will be set free. When he discovers that one of the new housemates is the sassy and ingenious Lydia, his carefully laid out plans are quickly thwarted.
She puts Betelgeuse through a series of tasks that he couldn't have expected and wins over the hearts of the Maitlands in the process. Hi jinks ensue, as this kooky bunch of misfits attempts to find joy and liberty together, whether dead or alive.
This extremely exciting play is sure to please with its dark and wonderful themes that will leave even the most skeptical show-goers excited.
