Daily Herald report

Have you wondered what scary things lurk in the basement Genesee Theatre? The Waukegan Public Library on Friday, Oct. 26 will offer free haunted expeditions through the innards of Waukegan's historic theatre with the purchase of a ticket to the Ray Bradbury Storytelling Festival. Tours run every three minutes from 6 to 7:15 p.m. The one-night only haunted house will travel down rarely used stairs at the back of the theatre, wind through the dark work areas of the basement, pass under the pit and end up on the stage itself. Seldom seen Genesee Theatre historic items, including the former light board, will be on display. The haunted house is not recommended for people who are pregnant or have heart conditions. Tickets for both the haunted house and performance are $17 at the Genesee box office, or (800) 745-3000 when you purchase your ticket before Oct. 26. The haunted house is an additional $5 if you purchase your ticket the day of the performance. Call (847) 623-2041 or visit
