JSU's Haunted Theatre Playing at Amphitheater Oct. 25-27

Legend has it that weird and peculiar things usually happen around Halloween at the amphitheater on the campus of Jacksonville State University.

The ghost of Shakespeare's Macbeth and the Grim Reaper have been spotted wandering through the trees in the recent past! Wailing and gnashing of teeth with horrible screams can often be heard deep into the night.

JSU Alpha Psi Omega Honorary Dramatic Fraternity invites the public to investigate these strange occurrences known collectively as the Haunted Theatre. The Haunted Theatre is a fund-raiser for Alpha Psi Omega, which is made up of drama majors and minors who meet the qualifications and have auditioned for the fraternity.

The investigation takes place nightly from 25 October through 27 October from 7:00 p.m. until 10:00 p.m. at the JSU Amphitheatre on the corner of Pelham and 11th Street. The cost to participate in the investigation is only $3.00.

Within the Haunted Theatre, a person could be laughing one minute and then screaming the next. But watch out for . . . But remember, the Haunted Theatre is a different kind of haunted house. Ghost and witches are possibly roaming about, but be careful because Hamlet may be roaming the graveyard.

But whatever you do, don't drink the "red wine"; eat the "finger foods", or the roasted "leg-of-lamb." They might just be some of your friends.

For more information about the event, call Jason Skinner, ghost master-hunter extraordinaire, at (256) 782-5623. See the Chanticleer article "Stage Fright".
