Back in the 1930's, there was a known love triangle with a performer. There was one woman and two men involved. The woman's boyfriend/husband found out, killed the homewrecker first, then shot his girlfriend/wife. And lastly, he hung himself on the mezzanine.
The theater is believed to be haunted by the husband and wife. You will hear faint footsteps running across the catwalks that can gradually get louder. Some have heard whispers. Even laughing.
The husband has been seen along the side of the audience as a dark angry figure. If you are a male, he tends to haunt them more. Simply believed it's the ghost thinking it's the secret lover. Some have seen a few chairs rocking. Alot of thumping tends to happen. One case the Audio-Video teacher was alone in there and saw the curtains violently shaking, if that were a person shaking them... It would take more then one person to shake them very rapidy and hard.
So far no one has caught the ghost on camera, simply because no one has officaly ghost hunted. But I shall be joined with two of my friends and my director to stay after camp and ghost hunt for a few hours.
