Laura Hofford Wilder is was our new talent buyer for music in the Opera House.
"I went downstairs one afternoon to retrieve some sound equipment from a storage area next to the green room. After I grabbed the cases and placed them on the table, I turned my back to close the storage room door, then turned back around to grab the cases. As I turned around, I saw a tall and very solid white figure walk quickly from left to right about eight feet in front of me - seemingly moving from one door in the hallway across to another. My first instinct was that someone else was in the green room, and I immediately grabbed the door on the right to see who was there - but it was locked. I grabbed the handle to the door on the left and found it was locked as well. It then hit me that though I had seen this figure go across the hall between the two doors, that I hadn't seen either door actually open.
I headed back upstairs, quite shocked. My coworker looked at me and asked if I was ok. I was a bit reluctant to blurt out "I think I saw a ghost!", so I said quietly that I thought I had seen something downstairs. He just laughed and said, 'Oh yeah - that happens here.' "
