The ghostly pair who reside here are seemingly bound in their duel for eternity. As legend has it, a gunfight occurred in the late 1800s over the hand of a local young woman. On the front steps, the two men’s apparitions plug each other with six-shooters, clutch their chests, and fall to the ground.

  1. I can’t tell you about any dueling ghosts. But I work here and just about everyone believes in a ghost called George who assists during the shows. (Notably becoming comfortable around you after your fifth production) or at least thats how our legend goes!
