  1. i haed lived in Cheyenne since wa 2 years old. I heard about te theatre being haunted. in the early 1980’s i saw the proof for myself. i was standing across the street when i glanced up at the building i saw a lady in a white dress looking out a second story window. i didn’t realize untillater that the buildingwas closed for renovations and this was on a sunday. the more i thought about it i realized that she didn’t walk away from the window she just faded away. overthe years since if i was walking by i wouldsee the curtain move as if someone was peeking out.

    I grew up in Cheyenne and in 1987, my mother-in-law was the musical director of Godspell, a production at the Atlas Theater. I went a couple of times with her to the production rehearsals, having already known about the “ghost” of the Atlas. Being intrigued with the paranormal, I went wandering around one evening upstairs where costumes and props of the theater are stored. At first I had no luck, but felt there was something up there. I decided to go through the upstairs again and walked into a room where there was a lady in a white gown standing by the window. It is crazy that J. Brinlee said that, because I seen her, the same spirit, from the other side of the window. I froze when I first seen her, always thinking the “ghost” was just a legend. She was looking out the window and as she turned towards me, she vanished. I just stood there looking at where she was and the curtain moved on it’s own, as if she was still there and looking out, but didn’t want me to see her. The story that I had been told was that the upstairs of the theater were apartments at one time and there was a fire upstairs in which two people died, a man and a woman. The man has been said to be a prankster and one night during the rehersal, my mother-in-laws directors baton kept disappearing and reappearing, after everyone searching for it, right where she had left it. We both thought it was probably the male spirit of the Atlas Theater, but no one had actually seen anyone or thing at the time. I told my mother-in-law about the woman upstairs and she asked me if she was in a white gown. When I said yes, she said she had seen her too then told me where and it was in the same room that I had seen her in.
