BEETLEJUICE (1988) synopsis:

After Barbara (Geena Davis) and Adam Maitland (Alec Baldwin) die in a car accident, they find themselves stuck haunting their country residence, unable to leave the house. When the unbearable Deetzes (Catherine O'Hara, Jeffrey Jones) and teen daughter Lydia (Winona Ryder) buy the home, the Maitlands attempt to scare them away without success. Their efforts attract Beetlejuice (Michael Keaton), a rambunctious spirit whose "help" quickly becomes dangerous for the Maitlands and innocent Lydia.

The original film was directed by Tim Burton and starred Michael Keaton, Winona Ryder, Alec Baldwin, Geena Davis, Catherine O'Hara,  and Jeffrey Jones. The new musical will hold its world premiere in a pre-Broadway run at the National Theatre in Washington, D.C. next October.
