Say hello to the theater obsessed ghost.
A university play is having its opening night right now.

I got a bit part in it, but it's been an interesting experience because I get to spend over half the play sitting in the lighting booth looking down on everything.

But that's not the fun part; the fun part is that there is a ghost right near me!

Yes!

Dorothy. The ghost who demands a program, flower, and chair on the catwalk surrounding the room, otherwise things go wrong (presumably nothing ever has gone wrong on any of the nights where they're there). Apparently floating doesn't give you a good enough seat.

I can't find any evidence this chick that supposedly taught at the university before dying and taking up residence in the theater fucking up the thing she taught previously ever existed but, theater people.

Part of me kind of wants to see if I can just crack open the door, grab the flower, then put it somewhere else and watch them freak out, but that'd end in either me getting in trouble or them being encouraged and neither are good options.

I'm gonna be up here for most of the next hour and a half. I'll be doing that six times.

I don't think Dorothy will be saying much.

Popcorn I put more thought into fiction than theists put into reality.

Boo! Wink

I love "haunted" houses. I like going to them and staying in supposedly haunted inns. I love the stories and folklore, even though I don't believe in ghosts or the spirit world. I do get a kick of hearing the stories from the innkeepers or people who supposedly witnessed these ghosts first hand.

What you do is just before the next show go into the greenroom and say "Macbeth!" really loud. It freaks actors out. It's supposed to be bad luck of the first order. The only way you can undo the bad luck is something like turn around in a circle to your left three times and say Macbeth backward, thusly....."H-teb-cam" and it undoes the curse. Maybe you could do the same thing with Dorothy.

Someone forgot the prop I was supposed to grab.

Again. Apparently nothing ever goes wrong when Dorothy's flowers and program are in place. Dodgy

Late for me to respond cause everything I do is over now, but thank you.

I do like creepy things. I'm actually incredibly easy to freak out even though I don't believe in ghosts. But I think the other people's sincerity in believing it kind of kills the fun. Every time they start with their ghost stories I just think "Really? REALLY!?".

I know what I'd do if I had 90 minutes, alone in a booth.

Having done some acting in my youth it's actually quite true, some actors are superstitious as hell about it. Though the curse is more "anyone who plays Macbeth has their career ruined" I don't correct them: Actors are a silly lot and it's fun to watch them squirm.Big Grin
