Laura's First Scare...

Posted Tuesday, August 19, 2014

Laura Hofford Wilder is our new talent buyer for music in the Opera House.. it only took a month or two for this to happen to her.. in her own words........

"I went downstairs one afternoon to retrieve some sound equipment from a storage area next to the green room.  After I grabbed the cases and placed them on the table, I turned my back to close the storage room door, then turned back around to grab the cases.  As I turned around, I saw a tall and very solid white figure walk quickly from left to right about eight feet in front of me - seemingly moving from one door in the hallway across to another.  My first instinct was that someone else was in the green room, and I immediately grabbed the door on the right to see who was there - but it was locked.  I grabbed the handle to the door on the left and found it was locked as well.  It then hit me that though I had seen this figure go across the hall between the two doors, that I hadn't seen either door actually open.

I headed back up stairs, quite shocked.  My coworker looked at me and asked if I was ok.  I was a bit reluctant to blurt out "I think I saw a ghost!", so I said quietly that I thought I had seen something downstairs.  He just laughed and said, 'Oh yeah - that happens here.' "
