    1. I was at the annual ghost tour on Halloween night at the Mishler Theatre and I was snapping a few pictures behind the stage area, right where the curtain comes down, and I got home and saw Mr. Mishler in 2 of my pictures with his top hat and bow tie on.

    2. Last year when Mishler Theatre had its haunted tour, I took some pictures behind the curtain on back of the stage and I got two pictures with Mr. Mishler wearing a bow tie.

      • I was a actor in the ghost tours and we had many people talking about Mr. Mishler during the tours we didnt know if anyone had gotten a picture or not so it would be cool if you uploaded it.
