Before I start my experience, this is my first post and I am now 15. This happened to me when I was about 8.
I can feel the presence of a spirit energy. This story is about the presence I could feel at the theatre back when I was 8. The Theatre itself is on the top floor Level 3 of the Thameside Complex and has been there now for years I believe back to the 80s. There is a backstage staircase which leads down to the changing rooms, toilets and fire exit stairwell. The changing rooms are located on Level 2.
On with the story. When I was 8, I was doing my first theatre production which was Chitty Chitty Bang Bang. Being on stage and in the auditorium it was all fine, but once I took one step into the wings (Backstage) that all changed. Once stepping in to the wings I would get really bad chills down my spine and just go really cold. This was the same feeling around the entire backstage area.
I remember having to go down the stairs to the backstage toilets on my own. Even though I was on my own, I couldn't help having the feeling that somebody or something was there watching me and following my every moment. Once I went to the toilet I quickly rushed up the stairs and go back on the stage or auditorium and I'd feel fine. If I wanted to use the toilet for the rest of the week I would always go with someone else, never on my own.
Following years I never experienced anything else at the theatre but I still believe it's haunted. It was only last year a crew member of the theatre told me that he believes it's haunted. Working there for years he told me he has seen lots of things he cannot explain.
I will never forget about this experience being my first and always believe the theatre is haunted.
Thanks for reading.
