For three nights only, Disentangle Projects and Stanley Halls present Ghosts of Stanley Halls – a socially-distanced adventure to discover the ghost stories residing in the famous Norwood landmark.
The show will feature chilling tales from local writers, access to the mysteries behind the scenes and more than a few surprises! Touring around Stanley Halls’ maze of backstage rooms and secret passages, the night promises to be a brilliant new immersive Halloween experience for 2020.
Meet the janitor with a nasty habit for murder, encounter the actress who is wooed by a dead man, and beware of the grandmother who lives in the basement. The show is aimed at adults (and brave children) and promises to be an unnerving night out for all.
The production team has worked hard to ensure that all guidelines are followed, and that audience members feel safe as they journey around the building. Director Tom Brocklehurst said, “We’re keen to show people that theatre can still work under these restrictions. We want people to come out and have a good time at Halloween without worrying – well, apart from the ghosts”.
Stanley Halls has recently reopened its doors for Halloween Cabaret nights, ballet, and children’s shows. Artistic Director Dan Winder said, “In challenging times it’s great to keep finding new and innovative ways to provide local audiences with a safe, fun and spooky time this Halloween”.
