Adria Dawn Tarleton, who teaches Self-Management and Freelancing in the Business & Entrepreneurship Department, plays newly-divorced Carol who moves with her kids, Amanda (16) and Adam (12), from Michigan to start a new life in a Victorian house in a Chicago suburb. The house turns out to be haunted by the ghost of a 17-year-old punk guitarist named Brian, who pretty soon forms a friendship that soon veers toward romance with Amanda. Playing an English Teacher whose lesson about Hamlet’s ghost hits home for Amanda is Kevin O’Brien, currently in his second year teaching Leadership and Introduction to Management.  Columbia Theater Department faculty member Brian Shaw plays Vladimir, Chicago’s most evil ghost.
