As we made our way into the costume room, Sandra felt the presence of a curious little girl. She described her as one that loved to play with different costumes, often getting into trouble because she never puts the costumes back where they belonged. Sandra said the girl was peeking at us from behind racks of clothes before disappearing, looking curious and afraid at the same time. She said the girl used to lie in a bed that was too small for her, a cot made with straws, but she never complained.
We left that room and moved on to the sound booth. It was in this room that Sandra felt that a presence, a man, joined our tour. She said in the sound booth, someone tripped and twisted his foot. Marion said the place used to be the projection room.
As we made our way down the stairs, Marion took us to the balcony. The balcony was overlooking the stage. Sandra said a young woman would often come to the balcony and twirl. The girl has a big hat and some spirits said that the woman is not who she claims to be. The spirits said they didn’t like the woman when dealing with the tour guides. We had no idea which woman the spirits were referring to. Marion, for her part, didn’t expound on that information either.
As we went upstairs, we shut off the lights to take the whole place in. We were still in the balcony area when Sandra heard a voice, asking her to come back to the costume room. But Sandra didn’t heed the call because she didn’t want to stray from the group. Sandra later said that she felt someone touching her from the back that’s why she kept leaning away from her chair.
The lights were back on and we noticed there was a seat down that has not been there before the lights went off. Sandra pointed to the clock and it read 7 o’clock. She said that the time might have been important in the theatre folks because she feels an almost overwhelming sense of anxiety. We felt it too. Sandra said she kept hearing a man’s voice saying “it’s almost 7 o’clock” over and over again.
Incredibly, Marion explained that the reason the time was important was because 7 o’clock is the time that performances would start in the theatre! Next, we visit the main floor of the theatre.
