TGWG rehearses and performs in an old house that has, at various times, served as a kindergarten and a printer’s shop. After the play, the cast and crew began talking about uncanny sights and sounds that have been observed in the theatre over the years. Apparently, the theatre is haunted by a number of ghosts--among them, a disembodied head that appears in the basement, a teenaged boy ghost who runs up and down the stairs, a little girl, and a male spirit who goes by a variety of names. Paranormal researchers who have visited the house have caught various weird manifestations on film--leering faces; strange sparks; glowing orbs that seem to chase people.
The opening night party ended at about 11:30 PM, and people began moving toward the door. I suggested hanging around for another half hour to see if any apparitions would show themselves at the witching hour. Strangely, nobody seemed to like this idea. Suddenly, the group seemed ill at ease. Glancing nervously over our shoulders, we all fled to the safety of our cars.
