FOREST GROVE, Ore. -- It's been eight months since that high pitch "mystery noise" heard in Forest Grove captured people's attention here and around the world.
After countless guesses and investigations, we still don't know where the noise came from but this Halloween, the town is having some fun with it.
The sound is part of this year's Haunted Theater at Theater in the Grove. The experience takes people on a trip through several science fiction movies while searching for a lost reporter who disappeared while searching for the mystery sound’s source. A little bit of art imitating life.
The Theater in the Grove puts on a haunted theater every Halloween. This year, organizers said playing off the mysterious noise was a given.
“Could it be aliens, what could it be?” Leslie Crandell Dawes of Theater in the Grove asked. “I think what’s really exciting is we actually have technical people who decided that's neat!”
That includes the theater’s technical director, Brian Johnson. He controls the sound and lights-- big parts of the experience.
“I hope people just really have fun, no matter what that means,” said Johnson. “Either be scared or just be in awe of what we did in less than two weeks.”
The actors are all Forest Grove High School students, who do a fantastic job.
Admission to The Haunted Theater “Aliens in the Grove” is $5.00.
It's open to the public Oct. 21, 22, 28 and 29 from 7-11 p.m. It continues Oct. 30 for a family friendly session from 2-6 p.m. On Halloween, the Haunted Theater is free and family friendly from 4-6 p.m. and reopens to the public that night from 7-11 p.m.
