  1. I used to live in the dorms across from this building for a couple of years. The Opera House usually hosts shows that are most popular on weekends, but always closes down after a certain hour at night. Usual business. One late night while walking down the street by myself, I looked into one of the windows of the opera house (they have slightly parted, opaque white curtains hanging in front on the inside), I could see a small lamp on a table that was on. Weird, because no other light was on in the building. Then an old woman in early 1900s looking dress walked in from another room and took a seat on the couch and just sat there and stared at nothing. Very creepy.

  2. When I was about 8 years old I did my dance recitals at the springer opera house. One night my and my friends were walking down the stairs from the dressing room to go on stage and we all seen on the top off the stairs it said “help me please” written in what looked like blood, we all got freaked out and were very curious. In my dressing room there was a disposable razor inside the glass window which I thought was very weird cause idk how it would have gotten in there. It is definitely a creepy place!

  3. This place is most definitely alive with some sort of ghostly presence. If the photos on the walls aren’t enough to creep you out, I don’t know what will. I attended summer camp here for 8 years and one summer while venturing out of one of my workshop classes to the mainstage, the kids in my group all noticed a translucent figure at the top of the balcony. It was creepy and I will never forget the chills I felt when I saw the figure. The next experience I had was on the second floor, in the women’s restroom. I had gone to the bathroom. I saw curtains moving and it literally stopped me in my tracks. I was 10. I will never forget this. I walked over and it was so so cold in that area. No air vent or anything. The curtains stopped moving as I approached.
