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/spooky storytelling/immersive theatre experience based on all the rumors of hauntings in this cherished 1816 building. Salem's luminaries and not so illustrious residents of the past 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. 


Please note: 

This performance moves throughout the darkened Old Town Hall. No cell phones or flashlights will be allowed. This may not be the best show for individuals with vision impairment or unsteady mobility. Please let us know in advance if you need wheelchair accommodation or are using a mobility device. (The elevator is only accessible by two people at a time, and should be monitored by a staff member.)


The size of the audience is kept deliberately small. No strollers will be permitted to move throughout the space. No backpacks or large bags will be allowed in the show.  


This show is fun for everyone, and especially intended for kids. We reserve the right to deny admission or participation to any individual who appears to be intoxicated or otherwise dangerous to others or to themselves. 


Kids under 16 must be accompanied by a responsible person over the age of 16


Please choose your dates and times carefully as ticket sales are final.  Late comers will generally not be admitted, and no refunds will be given for missed start times.. (Please plan well for the crazy traffic and parking challenges of Salem in October!)
