Coast Capitol Playhouse - White Rock, BC Canada

COAST CAPITOL PLAYHOUSE

Following are some EVPs we recorded while investigating the White Rock Players Club in White Rock BC. This location appeared on the show "Creepy Canada", 2002 Season 1, Episode 5.

Here is what Creepy Canada had to say about this location:

"White Rock Players Club has been situated in White Rock, BC for 100 years and is considered one of the most prestigious amateur theater companies in Canada. The theater itself is also known as a ghostly character. It is widely though that Frank Johnson, one of the club's founding fathers, haunts the building. Upon his death, he requested that his ashes be placed under the stage. Since last wishes were carried out, reports of a mysterious figure wandering the building have been common. Actors on stage claim to see his ghostly figure int he wings during performances or looking down on them from the rigging above during rehearsals. Other specters have also been sighted. A womanly figure will appear dressed in Victorian costume only to disappear right before their eyes. They have also been known to move objects or appear in the mirrors of the dressing rooms. Actors have reported frightening encounters of ghosts passing them on the stairwells leading to the prop and wardrobe areas. Seemingly, these phantoms refuse to take curtain calls."

Now, a few other bits and bites that are floating around about the theater:

The building was originally a Jehovas Witness Kingdom Hall that was converted into the theater and fitted with a stage in 1960. In 2006, extensive renovations were done, in which the stage, backstage, prop room and dressing room were left nearly untouched. According to various articles online, no one is really sure if the theater is still haunted, but just you talk to the staff there! Most of them have personal stories to tell. Other reports of activity include hearing a woman sighing in the rafters, and various unexplained noises throughout the theater during rehearsals.

Our team showed up to the investigation, and were accompanied by a few staff of the theater the whole night. The hospitality they showed was amazing, the kind you wish you had on every investigation. (Yes, they had coffee!) We started the night out in the main theater, and worked our way around the large building as the clock ticked late into the night. During this time, we heard many odd things, a lot which we couldn't explain. Occasionally we would see things too, it was pretty neat to be in a fairly active place! Oh one other thing, shout out to Holly for making some really yummy cookies, they were superb!

Anyways, I can't recall anything too crazy happening during the investigation, but the feelings in that building were warm and friendly. (Yes, I am one of THOSE "sensitive people".) I really hope we get a chance to investigation there again, it was an amazing time, and we did catch some great EVP's, which I will share with everyone below.

I could go more into detail about what else people experience there, but its mostly noises in the wings, up on the cat walk, light switch turning off and on, apparitions, etc. Not to mention, blogging is not my forte. So.....

Thanks again to everyone from Coast Capitol Playhouse, you were very gracious hosts and wonderful clients, and we look forward to working with you all again one day. I would also like to say thanks most of all to the NPI team!

Enjoy!

Investigation Aug. 5th, 2011

I hope everyone has been having a great weekend! Just to let you know that our next investigation will be taking place on August the 5th! Hopefully we will be able to share the location and the results of our investigation. What I can tell you all right now is that this location is a heritage site.

The main house, was built in the 1920's and is home to apparently a lot of activity.
We look forward to finding out for ourselves if that is true or not!
On a personal note, my Dad used to know the owners of this place, before it became a heritage site, how cool is that!

Well, I will keep everyone informed about the investigation and whatever we are allowed to reveal.

Until then, stay to the light and take care!

Coffee Talk wtih Chip Coffey - Vancouver, BC

On November 15th, 2011 Chip Coffey will be returning to Vancouver for another "Coffee Talk".  

Doors 6:30PM - Show 7:30PM 


http://coffeytalk-vancouver2.eventbrite.com/

I attended last year, and it was an amazing experience, and the venue used (Fairmont Hotel Vancouver) is fantasic.  As a sensitive, every time I enter the building, I can feel all the different energies roaming about. As for the 14th floor, I can't wait until the day I can spend the night there!

Get your tickets fast, before they run out!  And don't forget to upgrade to super VIP to watch Chip Coffey conduct an investigation in one of the "haunted" rooms. It is something one shouldn't miss, I know I won't.  I bought my ticket as soon as they went on sale! 

I hope to see you all there!
