When we see a traveling Broadway play that comes to our area, they need a place to put a show. Eventually, the owner will tell them it’s a beautiful place and the stage area is massively big, and the dressing rooms are actually they never seen before. Actually, the dressing room is the same as an ordinary dressing room in any theater — lights on the mirror, bathroom in the corner, and a sink with a mirror. And of course, a smelling trash can with a burrito.
One thing theater owner won’t tell you, the building is old and with that, it has a lot of history behind it, and it is haunted.
The McGlohan Theater in Charlotte, NC. It was named after a jazz pianist Loonis McGlohan. First, it was a Baptist Church in the early years and in the 1980’s it was converted into a performing arts building. The ghosts that inhabit the theatre are thought to be from the church days and have been heard roaming the halls and singing on the stage. It’s hard to be surprised considering the theatre is located in Spirit Square.
The Carolina Theater in Greensboro NC has two gruesome encounters of the paranormal. In 1927, the theater was open on Halloween night, and it was plagued by the death of a construction worker that fell to his death during the building construction.
In the 1980s a woman hid inside the theater after closing and was killed when a fire broke out. Her body was found in the stairwell, and since her presence in the building was unlawful, it is believed that she set the fire for attempting suicide.
Today, co-workers and visitors of the theater claim to have weird things to happen, like seats will be moving, lights flickering on stage during a rehearsal, and sometimes she will sit at the back of the auditorium watching the play and disappears.
The Old Courthouse Theater in Concord, NC. It was built in 1922 as a Baptist Church. In the 1970’s it was converted to a theater. The worst critic is “The Deacon” who is the apparition who stalks the premise of the building. He would flicker hall lights, rattling set pieces that he doesn’t know and messing with the stage lights. Whistling, singing voices, and jingling keys. It has been difficult with the new owners and recently there was a fire in 2018.
