The world of theatre is steeped in superstition and folklore, and so many actors' strong belief in ghosts is only to be expected. It is the variety, frequency and drama of their apparitions that makes the world of the theatre such a fascinating study.

The tales are endless, the ghostly sightings are very much a part of the daily life for those who 'tread the boards', and the frights they can give are so very, very real.

The world of ghosts and things that go bump in the night is enormous, so these accounts of theatrical spectres will hopefully add to your enjoyment whenever you are part of the audience, as certainly not all the action happens on stage!

As Halloween fast approaches, tune in online with Geraldine Beskin for this spine-tingling talk, perfect for thespians and theatre outsiders alike. 

Dim the lights, pour yourself a drink, get comfortable, and prepare for goosebumps…
