In the latter years of the 19th century, tragedy struck the banks of Brushy Creek. The locals will give you mixed accounts of the unfortunate events that befell a pair of young lovers that Valentine's Day evening so many years ago, but one thing is certain: the house that stands there today is haunted. Under the oversight of a medium, you have been invited with a hand-chosen array of friends and neighbors to assist in the spiritual cleansing of the house. Events long buried will be uncovered. Take courage. Be vigilant. The subtlest whisper may be key to all.

 

Inspiration for this thrilling live experience comes from Shakespeare’s Romeo & Juliet and the actual history of Williamson County. In addition to the performance, guests will enjoy a full dinner and drinks from the bar, all included in the ticket price.
