Play synopsis: The students of Hoover High decide the creepy manor of "Old Cut ’N’ Stitch" (actually biology professor Jarvis Stitch), who was rumored to have conducted many late-night experiments before mysteriously disappearing, is the perfect locale for a fundraiser. But the same idea occurs to some students at Jenkins High School and for a while, it looks as if one group is just rattling chains to scare the other. But then it becomes clear that a mysterious third party is doing the scaring! Claire faints when she finds a human skeleton and Frankie can’t understand how she is the only one to see a zombie. Professor Stitch himself turns up wielding a large knife, and the police arrive and then disappear! Just who is doing the spooking here? You’ll find the eerie answer in this haunted tale that’s hilarious fun! Haunted House extras included. For more information, call 419-244-5061.
