The Wenatchee Valley College Drama Department presents "The Canterville Ghost," an amusing ghost story based on the short story by Oscar Wilde. The performance will take place March 6, 7 and 8 at 8 p.m. in the WVC Campus Theater.

General admission is $8; admission for students and seniors is $4.

This touching and funny adaptation features Sir Simon Canterville, the 500-year-old ghost of Canterville Manor. Simon is suddenly faced with his worst nightmare—Americans. The Otis family moves in, and Sir Simon wants them out. When 16-year-old Virginia, who wants to be anywhere but in England, and Sir Simon meet, they have an instant dislike for one another. Soon, though, they discover that they have a very special link. Insert two rambunctious twins, a stuffy English butler, and a handsome English duke into the mix, and this becomes a wonderful adaptation of a classic.

The play is directed by WVC Drama instructor Janis Johnston.
