    1. I am a sensitive and upon walking into the Building amd towards the stage, I immediately got pulled to the right toward the restroom i stopped and looked to my right down toward the wall. My arms became tingly and had an unwelcome feeling and so I backed up into the main area. Later I went back because I couldn’t tell if there was an additional hallway and wanted to find out what I was sensing so I walked towards the wall and looked towards the left and I only saw another wall. I then looked up and there was about a 4 ft. with a latch opening to the attic and once I recognized it, whatever was there made my entire neck and head start to turn numb and tingly. So I left to shake it and later read that there where reported entities in the attic. It was not in a good mood.

    3. I saw a man for about 3 seconds in the top right press box. It was very quick so I didn’t see a top hat and I couldn’t tell what he was wearing. We we’re in the Opera house for an hour and a half and I didn’t have anything other than that happen. Its very rare for me to see something like that. I am sensitive to energy and usually feel spirits. The whole time I was there I didn’t feel anything. I’ve been to the corner bar about 8 times and never felt anything in there.
