Theatre Royal ghost.
English people believe in ghosts. They think that the British capital – London – is full of ghosts. Some ghosts are very famous and a lot of people have already met them.
Many people have seen a ghost at the Royal Theatre. This ghost always wears the same clothes. He wears a grey coat, a hat and tall boots. In fact, he wears the clothes of an Englishman of about 1750. And he usually does the same things. He comes out through the wall in a seat in the upper circle. Then he stands up, walks slowly across the theatre and goes into the wall again. He has his usual time between 10 in the morning and 6 in the evening. Usually the actors and actresses see him when they are rehearsing a new play, or when they are doing an afternoon performance.
At one afternoon performance in 1950, the British actor Morgan Davies saw the ghost. “I was acting in Carousel on Saturday afternoon. In one part of the play I was on the stage for twenty-five minutes. I looked up into the theatre, and saw an empty box. When I looked up again, there was a man in a grey coat in the box. He was standing up. But I could see through him! I watched him for about ten minutes. Then he went through the wall.”
Another time when actors were rehearsing a new play, there were about a hundred people on the stage. The ghost did his usual walk, from seat in the upper circle into the wall, and seventy of the actors saw him.
And then there is the theatre cat! The cat goes to all parts of the theatre – but it will not go into the upper circle!
The Theatre Royal ghost doesn’t try to talk to people, and he doesn’t hear people who talk to him. But actors think that he is friendly.
“We like to see the ghost at our theatre,” one actor said. “If we meet him before the first night of a new play, people are going to like the play. A lot of people will come to see it. But nobody sees him before an unsuccessful play.”
