Description

Brand new from the creators of Cry Innocent: the People vs. Bishop! No Ghosts at the Old Town Hall is a combination haunted scavenger hunt/reverse escape room/immersive theatre experience based on all the rumors of hauntings in this cherished 1816 building. Salem's luminaries and not so illustrious Nathaniel Hawthorne, Elizabeth Derby West, Harry Houdini and others come to life around you--but what they really want is to slip this earthly realm, and escape the most sinister of collectors.. Will you help them out of their earthly imprisonment?

Kid conceptualized and kid-friendly, (and more than a bit influenced by the constant parade of ghost tours outside our doors) this show has been centuries in the making. 

This performance moves throughout the darkened Old Town Hall. No cell phones or flashlights will be allowed. The size of the audience is kept deliberately small. No strollers will be allowed to move throughout the space. Please let us know in advance if you need wheelchair accommodation. This may not be the best show for individuals with vision impairment or unsteady mobility. We are happy to discuss this with you in advance if it's a concern.
