Boos and Brews: A Hippodrome Ghost Tour
February 9 @ 10:00 pm - 11:59 pm
Indulge in an exclusive behind-the-scenes tour of your regional, professional theatre, and once-courthouse and post office, Saturday, Feb. 9 at 10 p.m. and discover the Hippodrome Theatre’s hidden legends – but intruders beware!
This ghostly tour is only for the stout of heart (or stout beer if you prefer), and will grant you access to the sights and secrets of the Hipp normally off-limits to mortals. Journey with the Hipp’s resident actor and ghostly host with the most – Bryan Mercer, into the depths of the underworld (Hipp Lower Level), and even venture to the lesser-known third floor where specters have been sighted working daily to keep Gainesville Hipp! Join us and discover more – if you dare!
TIME: Saturday, Feb. 9 at 10 p.m.
For tickets call the Box Office at (352)375-4477 or visit https://tickets.thehipp.org/TheatreManager/1/online?event=2019
