Ghosts of the Citizens Theatre

About Ghosts of the Citizens Theatre

We love a Theatre and this is no exception. This is the first time the Theatre has allowed the public in for a ghost hunt and it with it closing 2 years for refurbishment in June it is a very unique opportunity.

Theatres are famous for their ghostly activity and this famous Glasgow location is no different. Over time, many patrons and staff members have reported the Ghosts of the Citizens Theatre. One long term staff member, trapped in the upper circle during a blackout, was led to safety by the distinctive outline of a monk. Customers seated in the dress circle during shows in the 1970s often inquired about the costumed "actor" who sat boldly on the balcony and stared back at them. Current staff members have caught glimpses of a "white lady" dressed in Victorian costume and flitting (moving) from the dress circle bar towards the circle studio dressing rooms. Backstage dressing room 7 is thought to be haunted by some of its past inhabitants and the upper circle has occasional visits from a strawberry seller girl, one of the most sighted of the Citizens ghosts

The Citizens Theatre has the most complete working Victorian theatre machinery in the UK and is the second oldest operational theatre in the UK, preceded only by Leeds Grand which opened 6 weeks earlier. The building, which is a Grade B listed building retains many of its Victorian architectural features; it is the only theatre in Scotland still to have its original machinery under the stage. The theatre also features an original Victorian paint frame and related fly system, which is still used today to paint backcloths. The remnants of an old bowling alley and a shooting range are closed up beneath the theatre. The building which is now known as the Citizens Theatre was built in 1876 and opened in 1878 as Her Majesty’s Theatre.
