FREEPORT, ILLINOIS — (January 16, 2017) In 1916 on North Chicago Avenue in Freeport, Illinois a group of people devoted to theatre arts began what is today, a 100 year history rich in some of the finest live theater performances of our time.
Hailed as the oldest continuous running amateur theatre in the entire United States, the tales of the Winneshiek Playhouse are entrenched with legendary casts, historic performances and even, tales from a little spookier side.
In a new documentary that recently surfaced, one local film crew dug deeper into the ghostly tales of the Winneshiek Playhouse.
Through its history they reveal little known secrets about the Winneshiek and speak with cast and crew who recount their experiences while inside the theatre.
Warning: What they tell may spook you. Is Winneshiek Playhouse haunted?
You decide for yourself.
