For the many who have tried, and failed, LaSpirits is proud to announce that we will be the FIRST group allowed to investigate the Historic Old Crowley Opera House!!! For years, this beautiful building has had reports of haunted activity!!
As an added bonus, the gracious owner of the Opera House is also allowing us access to the famous Egan Hotel, also located in historic downtown Crowley!! The hotel has hosted former presidents, and the NY Yankees, including Babe Ruth!
Finally, as the icing on the cake, the Egan will be the site of our hands-on investigation, during our Continuing Education Course, that we will be offering through the University of Louisiana in Lafayette!! The courses will consist of 3 classes and will begin in mid February 08! More information coming soon!!

I am sure that it will be a great investigation. I have done a little research on the Grand Opera House and have some interesting historical data to share. Many acts and apperances throughout the 39 years it remained open included Huey Long, Clark Gable, the great opera singer Enrico Caruso, Babe Ruth, and Madame de Vilchez-Bisset of the Paris Opera. If you want to see some interesting historical pics like an admission ticket from World War I era for 10c, and also the four angels that float above the box seats. I am looking forward to reading about the haunted history and the review of your findings after the investigation. www.thegrandoperahouse.org
