"Springer Opera House"
« on: March 12, 2007, 04:51:50 PM »
The Springer Opera House in Columbus, Georgia certainly has no shortage of spirits. Recently named as one of the "Ten Most Haunted Places in America" there are orbs, cold spots, slamming doors, and apparitions experienced on a very regular basis.

There's the ghost who finds missing wardrobe pieces and leaves them in plain sight; and the ghost who appears briefly center stage. The laughter of children can often be heard upstairs in the dressing room.

The most famous and frequent visitor is the spirit of Edwin Booth, renowned Shakespearean actor and brother of John Wilkes Booth.

Booth freely travels the old theatre, where he has appeared onstage, in the box seats and the lobby where his portrait still hangs.

It is even rumored the shadow of Edwin Booth helps out during productions by moving stage props and  has been known to reach out and tap an unsuspecting patron on the back.
What do you want, you moon-faced assassin of joy?

We walk in the dark places no others will enter. We stand on the bridge and no-one may pass. We live for the One, we die for the One
