Tripping on legends

Let's take a trip. Small town, USA. This is where the pulse of the paranormal resides. There are thousands of stories and experiences out there. Some have been told, and retold hundreds of times, and some are kept hidden, known only by the people that live there; this is where we come in. We're exploring the untold, and breaking down the overly familiar. Journeying through the one stoplight towns and discovering local urban legends, myths, lore, and paranormal episodes. Researching the backgrounds and developing the voices unheard. Our goal is not to capture evidence, but rather to capture the moment and bring our listeners along for the ride. Trip with us - Christopher Balzano, a veteran within the paranormal field, published author, and teacher, with Natalie Crist, a self proclaimed research guru.

Episode 81...Are All the Theatres Haunted?

Updated 4 months ago.

There’s something about a theatre that just pleads for a ghost story but are they all haunted? Now imagine it’s in the weirdest town in Florida.

As Halloween approaches and Tripping on Legends plans to hook back up with an old friend for an investigation, Christopher Balzano looks at the Arcadia Opera House. Sounds like a perfect time to look into stage superstitions and some of the haunted theatre legends we’ve explored over the years.

Listen to some of our other Arcadia shows and our show about Morris:

Episode 64...Mr. Coker Isn't Here

Tripping on Legends Episode 60…Curses and Kids in Arcadia
