Antoinette Hall, Tennessee’s oldest opera house, is inviting visitors to experience its eerie secrets during Haunted October through a series of spine-tingling events: a chilling adaptation of Bram Stoker’s “Dracula,” a paranormal investigation and a one-night-only macabrefest featuring iconic horror movie characters.


In the hallowed halls of STAAR Theatre at Antoinette Hall on Pulaski, Tennessee’s historic square, a chilling theatrical adaptation of Bram Stoker’s immortal tale awaits. Steven Dietz’s play, “Dracula,” weaves a spellbinding tapestry of terror, passion and the supernatural. With its unconventional narrative structure and eerie character portrayals, this play breathes new life into Stoker’s timeless masterpiece. The production runs from October 13-28, with tickets priced at $20.

Paranormal Investigation

On the night of October 14, renowned psychic medium Lesley Ann Hyde, alongside The Southern Ghost Girls Tours and TV paranormal personalities, will lead an interactive paranormal investigation at historic and haunted Antoinette Hall, built in 1868 and frozen in time since the 1930s.

Numerous ghost hunters have encountered the restless spirits who inhabit the hall. Spirits have been recorded revealing names or expressing emotions ranging from anger to sorrow.

Participants can expect an immersive experience, complete with hands-on investigations using state-of-the-art paranormal equipment and Victorian Methods of Investigation from the 1800s, including the mysterious tipping table for spirit communication. Personal readings by expert mediums will also be available. Tickets are $59.99.

Eras of Horror

On October 29, Antoinette Hall invites visitors to Eras of Horror, a one-night-only macabrefest from 5-9 p.m. as live performers breathe life into the eerie characters of some of the most iconic scary movies ever made. As visitors progress from room to room, they’ll be transported through the Eras of Horror, experiencing the spine-tingling scenes that made these movies legendary.

Included is also a tour of Antoinette Hall. The grand performance hall harbors restless spirits who have been caught slamming doors, tap dancing on the long-forgotten stage and making appearances in the balconies. Cold spots appear, even on scorching hot nights.

Admission to Eras of Horror is just $20 per person, and it’s suggested only for those aged 13 and over. All proceeds will directly support the ongoing restoration efforts of this historic treasure, Antoinette Hall.
