  1. I worked here painting the stage and props for a performance. I was alone there a lot. The other workers would leave for lunch and tell my friend and I that they would lock us in in case someone came to steal he equipment. We heard constant noises that we put off as just he creaking of an old building. Then we heard footsteps from across the stage. My friend stayed stage left while I went to check to see who it was. Nobody was there, but the door to backstage was open and I knew it had been closed. I called out with no response and asked my friend to come over. She did and while we were standing in silence, we heard the door on the other side of the stage open and footsteps sound like someone was walking out from behind the side curtains. Of course nobody was there and the people who locked us in didn’t show up for another hour. Aside from that I had paintbrushes that would move around all the time. Anyone who performed in a play will tell you about the little boy that likes to run up and down the side hallways.

    • I live close to the theatre. I used to see ghosts also. I remember my family telling me that they would hear running up and down our hallway when they were asleep and I was definitely not the type to be energetic. They say I saw a boy beside the computer in our living room. Apparently I would talk to him, but I never said his name.
      Also, a few days ago, I was talking with some friends and they brought up a ghost named Patrick. So I decided to do something I don’t usually do much. I ran to my room, grabbed my pendulum, and asked it a few questions. They were: “may I talk to a spirit” and the answer was “yes”. I asked “May I talk to Patrick”. And it said yes. I asked him some questions but nothing important other to not be near me when he is asked not to be. Tonight I shall ask more questions and reply with an update.
