How would you like to have a pet ghost? A nice, tame one that would be easy to take care of, sleep in your closet, do your work, or frighten people out of their wits – whichever you preferred? It sounds strange, but amusingly different, doesn’t it? And that’s why “Great Caesar’s Ghost!” is one of the funniest, most unusual farces ever written for the amateur stage. When Phineas Farthingale comes to visit his niece, Helen Maxwell, he brings with him the fun-loving, temperamental protective ghost of an Inca Chief whom Phineas once befriended on a trip to South America. The ghost is never seen, but what he does in his humorous way makes him one of the most “real” characters of the play. For Helen is having trouble convincing her mother that Tommy Tucker is the one guy for her. So when Phineas, Aunt Polly, Helen’s go-getter aunt, and the Ghost all start to help her, it’s hard to imagine the fun. Of course, Mrs. Maxwell and her scatter-brained friend, Phoebe DeRoyster, are victims. But before the final hilarious curtain falls, trouble finds Dick, a neighbor boy, Hattie the cook, and Deborah DeRoyster, who has until this time been under her mother’s all too protective wing. And when Emma, the maid, is hypnotized by Mahjah, the mysterious sage, the audience has the time of their lives. This play is full of special effects and ghostly tricks that will challenge your production crew. But fear not, they are well explained and easy to pull off. With a fast-paced series of funny scenes, audiences will laugh themselves hoarse. One set.
