Covington's The Carnegie is getting in the spooky spirit this Halloween in a hauntingly interactive way. 

The Northern Kentucky arts venue is hosting a walkable Halloween-themed production, where guests experience a socially distanced mystery, told by a series of ghost characters in various rooms and locations throughout the space. 

Guests will piece together the stories and solve the mystery — or perhaps be a part of it — along the way. 

According to a press release from The Carnegie, "SILENT SCREAM tells the ghostly tale of Billy Bailey, a promising young actor of the silent screen era. When his fiancé was mysteriously found dead, he became the prime suspect. Before the truth could be revealed, a fire destroyed the theatre and all the evidence within it. Now ghosts roam the theatre where the murder took place, forever searching for the truth."

The format of the show enforces a socially distant and safe experience for guests. The production is digested in small vignettes, with groups led by a guide. There are staggered timed tickets for reduced crowds and enforced mask wearing. The Carnegie team will also be disinfecting high-touch surfaces.

The tour lasts 60 minutes, and guests should prepare for continuous walking and standing along the way — though limited mobility accommodations are available. 

SILENT SCREAM runs from 6:50-9:50 p.m. Oct. 29-Nov. 1. Tickets cost $60 per group, and groups can include up to six guests. The production continues in 10-minute increments throughout the nights.
