They See Dead People?

England is well known for its ghosts. Of the many haunted places throughout the UK, the Gaiety Theatre, on the Isle of Man, is reported to be one of the most haunted on the British Isles. The theatre was originally constructed in 1899 and opened its doors in 1900. After falling into a state of severe disrepair by 1968, it was saved from demolition. Restoration began in 1990 and was completed in 2000.

Three spirits are said to haunt the building. One, known as the"Lady in Black", sits in the auditorium and, according to some witnesses, has a penchant for musicals. The second is a shadowy male figure who walks through a wall on the right side of the auditorium. Lastly, an invisible pair of hands is said to help guide people during a crisis.

Perhaps there could be one more?

Actors Zac Efron and Claire Danes have been at the theatre filming a movie titled "Me and Orson Welles". Just last week, the pair were terrified by an apparition outside of a window. Efron was reportedly quite shaken by the experience.

Crew members have since been teasing him about their experience.

Wow! sounds very interesting. I know they have alot of ghosts in England, as they have such a long history compared to this the US. And this theatre sounds very interesting. Maye they could get the crew of "Most Haunted" in there or "TAPS" International in there to investigate.
