Ghost Light


Ghost Light

A Haunting Experience
Friday through Sunday, October 21 – 30 (two weekends only!)
Tours start every 20 minutes from 7 – 11 PM
Jean’s Playhouse • Need Directions?
$25 per Ticket (Sunday Afternoon “Daytime Light Fright” – $20 per Ticket)


“Join us for a tour of the abandoned and dilapidated Playhouse, known as the Papermill Theatre, named after the Paper Mill Factories that once lined the river. The Mills and the area both have a rich history, which sadly includes tragedy and loss. Some even say the Playhouse that rests there now is haunted by those who have perished over the centuries. Though the building is in a state of dangerous disrepair and supposed ghost sightings have run rampant as of late, the glow of the Ghost Light is sure to burn bright and keep the tour safe and sound … at least we hope.”

Ghost Light is a brand new Halloween event, designed as a haunted house walk-through, but with the magic of immersive theatre. Each 40 – 45 minute tour accommodates 12 guests and has a scheduled start time. Please arrive early, as once the tour starts we cannot allow guests to join in late.

In addition to our evening haunts, which includes all the scares and thrills, we also offer Sunday afternoon haunts, called “Daytime Light Fright.” Our usual tour has been adjusted to accommodate those who do not like jump scares. While the environment is still spooky and creepy, the show has been adjusted so that the audience can enjoy the theatre magic and special effects, without having to worry about something jumping out from around the corner. While the environment can still be a little spooky for some children, this is a great option for most families and individuals who want to have a spooky experience without the scares.

We also HIGHLY RECOMMEND you read our FAQ Section below before purchasing tickets. We do not offer refunds, so please be sure you understand our descriptions and guidelines:

  • Is this a show or a haunted house?

    Both! our Haunt has been set up very much like a traditional haunted house, but with a story line running through the whole thing. So unlike many haunted houses, which consist of different themed rooms (i.e. the clown room, the haunted doll room, the asylum, etc.), our tour has been meticulously planned out as a story from start to finish. Guests will get to take a walk through the entire dilapidated building, and even the backyard where ruins of a 19th century graveyard still remain. What could go wrong???

  • How scary is it?

    Our goal is to create a haunted house that tells a cohesive scary story. We have traditional jump scares, strobe lights, smoke, loud noises, tight spaces, incline walking, outdoor exposure, and more, but we also include theatre magic and special effects! We do not recommend this event for young children, however, there is no age restriction. We leave the decision to the parents as they know their children best and are able to decide what a child can or cannot handle. Please keep in mind all sales are final and we do not offer refunds.

    If you are concerned that it might be too scary, we recommend attending one of our Sunday Afternoon “Daytime Light Frights!’ You can read more about them below.

  • How long is it?

    Once you enter the building and begin the tour at your schedule time, the event should take between 40 and 45 minutes. Feel free to come early and/or stay late to enjoy outside concessions and ghost stories around a roaring fire.

  • Do you sell concessions?

    Yes! Our front yard will have a place to sit by the fire, hear ghost stories, and purchase refreshments, including hot apple cider, baked goods, candy, and more.

  • Can I just show up and buy a ticket?

    If we have tickets available, we will sell them at the door, but we highly recommend purchasing in advance. Tours start every 20 minutes, however, we can only fit 12 guests per tour, so we highly recommend buying ahead of time, especially if you’re attending with a group.

  • Can my group have a private tour?

    We can only accommodate groups up to 12, and if you want it to be a private tour, you must purchase all 12 tickets in a time slot, otherwise remaining tickets will be available for the general public to purchase.

  • What happens if there's bad weather?

    Most of our event takes place inside, so rain or shine, the event will go on! But if it is raining, please be prepared that there are a few moments during the haunt that do take place outside.

  • What happens if I arrive late?

    Once the tour starts, we cannot add late comers, so please be on time, or better yet, early! If you do come late, we will do our best to add you to another tour later in night if we have availability. All sales are final and we do not offer refunds if a guest misses the tour.

  • I'm pregnant or have a physical health issue, should I attend?

    We cannot make that decision for you, please use your best judgement. There are many jump scares, strobe lights, smoke, loud noises, tight spaces, incline walking, outdoor exposure, and more. Again, please use your judgement. All sales are final and we do not offer refunds.

  • Is the Haunt handicap accessible?

    We encourage visitors with special needs to call ahead so that we can best arrange a tour tailored to their specific requirements.

  • What is the Daytime Light Fright?

    On Sunday afternoons between 1 and 5 PM, we do our “Daytime Light Fright.” Our usual tour has been modified to accommodate those who do not like jump scares. While the environment is still spooky and creepy, the show has been adjusted so the audience can enjoy the storytelling, theatre magic, and special effects, without having to worry about something jumping out from around the corner. While the environment can still be a little spooky for some children, this is a great option for most families and individuals who want to have a spooky experience without the scares.

    Like our evening event, tours start every 20 minutes and we highly recommend you purchase your tickets ahead of time, as there is limitied availability.
