There’s something about a theatre that just pleads for a ghost story but are they all haunted?  Now imagine it’s in the weirdest town in Florida.

As Halloween approaches and Tripping on Legends plans to hook back up with an old friend for an investigation, Christopher Balzano looks at the Arcadia Opera House.  Sounds like a perfect time to look into stage superstitions and some of the haunted theatre legends we’ve explored over the years.

Listen to some of our other Arcadia shows and our show about Morris:

Episode 71…The Magician’s Ghost

Episode 64…Mr. Coker Isn’t Here

Tripping on Legends Episode 60…Curses and Kids in Arcadia

Episode 4…Oak Ridge’s Talking Mary and the RAF
