1. Marco Players: ‘The Spirit of Bay Manor’

“The Spirit of Bay Manor,” a world premiere by Joe Simonelli, takes place in a supposedly haunted house. But, is it really haunted?

Five people gather to prove that the house isn’t haunted. The story line succeeds as a frightening psychological thriller.  “The Spirit of Bay Manor” is on stage now through Jan. 24 at The Marco Players Theater, Marco Town Center Mall, 1089 N. Collier Blvd., Marco Island.

Shows are Wednesday through Saturday at 8 p.m. and Saturday and Sunday at 3 p.m. Tickets are $36 plus $2.50 facility fee. Information: TheMarcoPlayers.com or by calling the box office at 239-642-7270.
