The stage crew at St. Genesius Prep—or Backstagers, as they like to call themselves— are ready for whatever the theater world can throw their way: the madness of tech week, inevitable prop malfunctions, and all the paranormal activity that goes on behind the scenes. But lately, someone—or something—seems set on ruining their production of Phantasm. It all started when an actor brought a Spirit Board to the cast party, and the ghost light blew out. Every good theater kid knows that a ghost light needs to be left on to ward off ghosts. So when it went out, could something evil have snuck into the theater? To figure out what’s haunting the theater and save the show, the Backstagers will have to use their smarts, their bravery, and a little bit of magic!
