The Ghost of the Opera House – SOLD OUT
October 27, 2017 - October 29, 2017$35.00
Murder Mystery Dinner Theater comes to the Opera House!
The Pocahontas Opera House will host the premier of “The Ghost of the Opera House,” a murder mystery dinner theater to be held Friday, October 27 and Sunday, October 29 from 6:00 to 9:00 pm both evenings. Tickets are $35 and include the play, dinner and beverages.
For years we have heard stories about ghost sightings at the Opera House… People would hear strange noises and see flashes of light. Last year when the Greenbrier Paranormal Society from Lewisburg inspected the building, our fears were confirmed: The Opera House is definitely haunted.
The Opera House hopes to get to the bottom of this ghost business by inviting audience members to help them solve the mystery that surrounds the Opera House. (They also hope to raise some money to fund their programming and purchase black out curtains so they can show films and host other events during daylight hours at the Opera House.)
The play, written by Arla Ralston, Pocahontas County Opera House Foundation Board President and playwright, centers on the story of Lily Lacey, a local girl who becomes a famous singer and returns to perform at the Opera House in 1917. During the course of the evening, the audience will watch her story unfold and be able to ask questions of the characters before casting their votes as to “who dun it.”
