Ghost Station - a brand new play written for Artemis Studios students.

A small group of London teens break into a dead tube station - closed up since the late 40’s. The station is a dark time capsule, unchanged and boarded up with commuters passing through on trains unknowingly every day.

The teens explore the dark passageways, filming as they go for a Blair Witch style video.

But things take a strange turn when they film the quiet platform - as they look through the view screens on their phones they can see children in school uniforms, dancing girls, soldiers, nurses and more!

They are seeing echoes of past events–ghosts from a bygone age–back to the second world war, when the bombs were falling and the local residents of Bethnal Green fled to the tube on a daily basis.

Over days of filming they realise the children and adults they are seeing are about to fall victim to a disaster - when dozens of people were killed in a dreadful accident on the platform. Can they find a way to reach into the past and speak to the people they can hear  and see so clearly? Can they change history? 

Featuring sing-a-long popular songs from the 40's such as 'Boogie Woogie Bugle Boy' and 'Chattanooga Choo Choo'. Presented by performing arts students from Artemis Studios in Bracknell and Windsor aged 5 to adult, this is a roller coaster story with laughter, tears and some toe tapping songs!

Ghost Station is a brand new musical play written by local writer Niki Robinson especially for the Artemis Studios Performing Arts Schools students. By commissioning a new work every summer Artemis ensures every performer is a star!
