  1. i know the lady at the tickit counter and she took me through the basement and the whole basement and under the stage and i did not see a thing but i did get a erie felling and on occation had the shivers

  2. I’ve been there many times and felt uneasy. Also, I felt like I was being watched and I saw shadow blobs. There is something there.

  3. Many people have seen a little ghost girl in the bathroom hallway near the men’s restroom/lounge. There were always rumors of a ghost handyman in the rooms in the basement and under the stage. Haunting or not – it’s one of the most beautiful places in the state and well worth a visit.

  4. Back in 2011 when I was working with cleaning crew. I would see shadow people on the 2nd floor seats and on another time I was carrying boxes from the basement up to the 1st I would get cold chills while I was down in the basement.
