Video: Volunteers Work Hard To Deliver Frightening Time At Haunted Theater
TUPELO, MISS. (WCBI) – If you ‘re looking for a frightfully fun time, Tupelo’s Lyric Theatre may be the place for you.
The annual “Haunted Theater” is up and running and as WCBI’s Allie Martin reports, it gives people a chance to see some creepy sights, while supporting a great cause.
For several weeks now, Steve Miller and a host of volunteers have been preparing to frighten the masses.
This is the tenth annual “Haunted Theater.” Those who are brave enough will experience frightening sights and sounds as they make their way through the haunted maze.
“You just have to be prepared for things that aren’t real,” Miller said.
Like the High Priest of the Voodoo Room, and watch out for that 18 wheeler.
It takes a lot of work to stage the Haunted Theater, which is a fundraiser for the Tupelo Community Theatre.
“We’re a no touch haunt, we’re not going to grab you and that’s comforting to a lot of people, we have one of the largest haunts, covering 60 thousand square feet,” Miller said.
This year there are about 20 rooms and everyone, from designers, carpenters to actors, volunteers their time.
“There’s a lot of work that goes into it so it’s good for people to come out and support it, cause it’s our local theater and it’s been around awhile,” said Volunteer Jake Mason.
“We all have a great time and we have a like for the haunt. it’s great fun to scare people, scaring people is why we do it,” Miller said.
And you never know, “Antoine” the fabled ghost of the Lyric Theater, may even make an appearance.
The Haunted Theater runs this Friday and Saturday night. If you want more information on times, go to www.facebook.com/TctHauntedTheater
