Rebekah Lowings, who plays Molly, and Niall Sheehy, who plays Sam, took to the wheel to work the clay and get a further insight into the University of Sunderland ceramics courses which are based at the National Glass Centre.

Based on the hit 1990 film starring Demi Moore and Patrick Swayze, the musical tells the story of couple Molly and Sam whose lives are torn apart when he’s murdered in a robbery gone wrong.

Ghost the Musical cast Molly played by Rebekah Lowings and Sam played by Niall Sheehy re-create the iconic pottery scene at the National Glass Centre

Speaking about recreating the famous potter’s wheel scene, Rebekah said: “I was originally petrified because, apart from being a performer, my artistic qualities are very slim. I love that scene because we have so much fun. I wish I could get Niall more messy, but he has a quick change right after and I’m not allowed.”

Aside from the famous The Righteous Brothers’ Unchained Melody track, the musical’s moving score is penned by Sunderland-born musician Dave Stewart and Glen Ballard.
