Superstitious Saturday St. James Ghost

Superstitious Saturday St. James Ghost

The St. James Theater in Wellington, New Zealand was built in 1912. It is home to at least one ghost and one of those is a dancer.

First, there is “The Wailing Woman” believed to be the ghost of a failed actress. She is heard weeping the dressing rooms and is said to be responsible for any bad luck that befalls actresses appearing on the stage.

But to counter that, there is a friendly ghost named Yuri. He is the spirit of a Russian dancer who fell, jumped (or was pushed) to his death somewhere high above the stage. Interesting that he would be considered friendly after such an occurrence! You can read more about him here: https://hauntedauckland.com/site/st-james-theatre-wellington/.

Yuri causes strange electrical problems in the theater, but he is also said to have saved the life of one of the projectionists – twice!
