Historic Don Bank Museum opens its doors for a unique theatre experience. And just because you’re in the audience doesn’t mean you’re safe…

The Dark Stories company is back treading the boards on the dark side to bring you an immersive, interactive theatre production titled ‘The Haunting’.

Do you dare to lay an unhappy spirit to eternal rest? This Ghost Story Mystery is set in an old cottage on the outskirts of Sydney, with you, the audience, written into the story’s narrative.

This is not your typical ticketed theatre event where you get to sit down and enjoy the show. This time you are part of the story and can engage with the characters in the story, in real-time, as you are guided through an old haunted cottage to solve an ancient mystery.

Your story begins on the outside of this cottage, and it is up to you to exorcise the house of an unhappy spirit. To do so, you will need to deduce the truth of events in this house from over a hundred years ago. Every previous attempt to cleanse this house has been tragically unsuccessful. Can you succeed where all the others have failed?

The production is to be hosted in the Don Bank Museum, the oldest wooden house in North Sydney. Built in the first half of the 19th century, it was acquired by North Sydney Council in 1979 and converted into a local history museum. It is one of North Sydney Council’s premier historical sites open to the public, and a rare example of an early timber slab house nestled in a remnant Victorian garden. Featuring the history of the house and its former occupants, Don Bank’s displays focus on social history and our changing times.

The Haunting tickets are now on sale, with the show running across two weekends, the evenings of the 10-12th June and the 17-19th June. Tickets are $34 per person, with audience numbers limited to 15 guests per session, so please book early to avoid missing out.
