SPIRIT: The Authentic Story of the Bell Witch of Tennessee
Each Fall since 2002, David Alford's play, Spirit: The Authentic History of the Bell Witch of Tennessee, has been produced on the grounds of the Bell School in Adams, the very land settled by John Bell and where the hauntings took place. As the play says, "In this place, on this ground" — only yards from the graves of the Bell family. The play is performed by professional actors from Nashville as well as local talent.
Shows are performed at the Bell School Complex Outdoor Theatre (Brooksher covered pavilion). Please dress for the weather! Seating is general admission - no reserved seating.
Internet sales close at 4:00 PM CDT. Tickets will be available at the door. IF all seats “sell-out” under the covered pavilion and IF weather permits, grass seating will be available at the same pricing; bring your own chair or blanket for the great grass seating.
What is the refund policy?
Tickets sold are not refundable. Refunds are given only in the event a show is cancelled. If show is cancelled tickets would be good for a subsequent performance. If a show is cancelled and no performance dates remain and Equity prevents a make up date, the ticket price would be refunded. (This would not include any fees if tickets were purchased on line.)
What can/can't I bring to the event?
During the Festival, Tennessee nights can be cool or even cold. The performances are outdoors in an open-air pavilion. Please dress for the weather and enjoy the show! Alcoholic beverages are not allowed.
Do I have to bring my printed ticket to the event?
You may bring either a printed or show your e-ticket on your mobile phone.
When does the house open for seating?
