True North Sports + Entertainment along with One Trunk Theatre and Fête Jockey Productions, brings Stage Frights – A Haunted House Experience, to the Burt. Oct. 25 to 31.
Audiences will tip toe through the bowels of the theatre, winding their way from room to room. En route, they encounter the theatre’s ghosts, whose morbid ends and shattered dreams lay bare for a terrified audience, especially the beloved theatre performer Mabel Hackney, whose ethereal soul has rumoured to be present in the Burton Cummings Theatre for years.
Those who enter will take part in an immersive experience that puts a theatrical twist on a traditional haunted house to deepen the terror by amping up the story and getting in your head. Will Mabel escape the basement and find peace once and for all? Will you?
“The response for the haunted house has been fantastic since we made the initial announcement. People are ready for a fright,” said Kevin Donnelly, VP of Venues and Entertainment with True North Sports + Entertainment.
“We have no doubt that people will be spooked as they travel around the venue, unravelling and discovering the afterlife of Mabel.”
Experiences will begin every 30 minutes and thrill seekers will be able to choose their preferred date and time by purchasing tickets at Ticketmaster.ca, visiting the Bell MTS Place Box Office or by calling 1-855-985-5000. There are a limited number of tickets available per time slot, so it is best to purchase early.
