  1. Kids laughing and running down the theatre hallway around 2-3 am.

    Seeing people walking up the stairs and then when you follow them they are no longer at the top of the stairs.

    In the black box theatre late at night you can hear someone walking in the catwalk, stop breath loudly and then continue walking.

    During the run of a dance rehearsal there was a sighting of a person peeking around the corner of a leg by the Stage managers desk seen by everyone in the house and on the direct video feed to the booth, When the SM was told about them they went to check it out but he could not see the person even though they were still clearly seen on the video. Once the SM returned to his desk the person reappeared to the people in the house and continued on the video. The person walked across the stage, dogging the current dancers on stage and then disappeared when it walked behind the leg on the opposite side of the stage.

    Another incident that occurred during the same dance show was the constant interference on our clear com when the person appeared on the video. It would sound like two people talking, the one on stage and the someone else in the house. We thought that it was the stage hands backstage but at that point no one but the SM and the light-board op had a headset.

    • I’m currently a student at SUNY Oswego. I’ll go to Tyler Hall where the theater is located late at night to study or catch up on work. During my last work session my buddy took me down to the basement to show me tunnels that connect Tyler to other buildings. On our way down, as we passed the theater we heard a screech sound come from the auditorium. I assumed it was door closing from a draft we allowed in. However when we entered the theater we both saw what I believed to be a woman swaying. She sprinted off behind the stage before I could yell out to her. I’ll be going back soon to investigate more. Who doesn’t like a good scare?
