For actors, seeing a ghost in a theatre is apparently a sign of good luck...but will we be lucky?
The beautiful 300 year old Savoy Theatre is the oldest working theatre in Wales.
It stands on the site of a former tavern called The Bell Inn, which during the 18th century, welcomed touring actors who would perform in its assembly room. For this reason, the venue was relaunched as "The Theatre Royal" in 1850 by J.F. Rogers.
As time went on it converted in to a rollerskating arena called 'The Rinkeries' and then became Monmouths first cinema the "Living Picture Palace".
The Savoy Theatre we see today opened on March 5th 1928 and contains all the glamour and charm one would expect from a luxurious theatre of the time, boasting elaborate plasterwork, gilded decoration, comfortable seating, great acoustics and excellent views from both stalls and balcony.
It was, and still is a real feast for the eyes
It's rumoured that in the lighting room, a black mark on the ceiling next to the chandelier was caused by a woman falling through to her death. Her sudden demise is said to be felt by staff and volunteers on a regular basis.
It said the theatre is haunted by numerous spirits including victorian children, actors, former workers who roam between the stalls and even the spirit of a serial killer!
