The Ghost of Laxson Auditorium

Ernesto Rivera

Stories about the ghosts that grace the Chico State campus have floated around for years. One of those that gets told again and again is the ghost of Laxson Auditorium.

There are many versions of this story. Who is she? Where did she come from? Why is she here?

To find answers to these questions I went to Laxson Auditorium to speak to Daran Goodsell, marketing & publicity coordinator, and Dan Goodsell, production coordinator, for Chico Performances. Dan and Darran have not only heard the stories of the ghost, they’ve had their own encounter with her.
