The spirit of Bobby Darnall a young boy who died when a boiler exploded is said to haunt the theater.Although there are also reports of a young woman wearing a bonnet who has been seen wandering the hallways, the employees of the theater believe that Bobby is the most active ghost, and is prone to playing tricks and pranks on the crew. Whether it is just basic superstition or not, everything that goes wrong in the theater gets blamed on Bobby and cast members attempt to appease him by bribing him with doughnuts, leaving them out before performances so that he won’t interfere with their show.

    1. Bobby did not die at the theater, he in fact died in the ambulance on his was to the hospital. It is common for a spirit to return to a location in which they are connected. It was a tragic place for young Bobby. Per chance does he return to the theater to be with his friends that he had left behind in the balcony when he went down stairs and was struck by the explosion?

    2. I went here on a drama class trip in high school. I didn’t experience anything strange until I went to the bathroom. I heard whispering and the toilet flushed on its own while I was washing my hands.
