  1. When I was about 10 I got my first lead role in a play at the Collins. My friend and I were snooping around after rehearsal and we went up to the balcony. We discovered an office upstairs that had a strange lookin door that led to an attic type crawl space that we assumed led to the projection room. We thought nothing of it until a few days later we both begun having nightmares about young children being tortured in that strange room we had found. That day, we crept up to the old office again, opened the door to the crawl space area and saw two children sitting there. They were slightly transparent, and their eyes were glowing. I had never heard anything about children dying there, but we assume some children must have. It was very intense and frightening.
