Did that door just creeeeek open on its own? Where did those eerie footsteps come from? Do ghosts roam the halls or is the house itself evil? A trio of students enter a haunted house determined to answer this question. Using spine-tingling tales from authors like Edgar Allen Poe, Youtheatre and Theatrefolk Publishing collaborate on this world premiere about the stories that lie within the walls of these haunted habitats. Only the spirits know....and they’re watching you....
