If you’re looking for some ghostly activity, the Playhouse can help fulfill those needs. The theater’s original owner, Gilmor Brown, is said to haunt this historic landmark, pulling pranks, and correcting actors, along with other spirits. It all started in 1917. Brown had a group called the Gilmor Brown Players. At the time, Pasadena was a small town of farmers and rich vacationers. The group was performing in an old burlesque house at the time. Luckily, Pasadena loved their performances. Fans and the town donated to them, and they were able to move out, and move into the Pasadena Playhouse in 1924. At the time, it was known as the Pasadena Community Playhouse. It was the most advanced theater on the west side of the Mississippi. With all the success of the group and the city, George Bernard Shaw called Pasadena “The Athens of the West.”
Brown was the artistic director of the Playhouse. He was quite the perfectionist. If something was wrong, he would have his actors do it until it was right. He got this cue from his cat. Usually, the cat would turn it’s back to the stage if a scene was being done incorrectly. Brown took this as a sign to adjust the scene. When it was corrected, the cat would turn back around. He died in 1960, but he is still correcting actors in rehearsal to this day.
The stage lights flicker in the Playhouse when no one is in there. Props disappear and reappear in a completely different part of the theater. Doors lock and unlock by themselves. Disembodied footsteps can be heard throughout the theater. The list of claims continue to grow.
