San Gabriel Mission Playhouse, aka San Gabriel Civic Auditorium has tunnels underground that are believed to be haunted. The tunnels were built so that the owner, Uncle John, could quickly go from backstage to the foyer. Reports say that during the Depression, the tunnels were used to house dead bodies, and when they were full, the tunnels were sealed. Apparitions have been seen and have shown up on monitors during performances. One was recognized as Uncle John. Other spirits thought to reside here belong to a little girl and a former stage manager.
