The tour begins at the Prague Theater, Daleko's home, where we're greeted by our tour guide in historically spooky garb. Tammy aka "Raven" (alternately played by Alyson Enderle and Amanda White) explains the logistics of the fictional tour-within-a-tour, when she's interrupted by stage manager Ethan (Phillip Hoelscher), telling her that the tour has been cursed. This sets the stage for a whole lot of shenanigans while we're walking around, which includes Ethan filling in for missing actors at various stops along the way, Tammy's ex Hunter (Ben Thietje) following her around and begging to be taken back (slowly stalking the group in a white Prius blasting the perfect songs, well chosen by sound designer Joshua Stallings), and rival tour guide Manny (Anthony Zadra) with his uninterested customer (Jami Snively).

Ghost Tour continues through October 12, after which Daleko's season continues with another holiday comedy, a play about mathematician Ada Lovelace, and everyone's favorite musical about middle schoolers, The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee. New Prague is a bit of a drive (half hour to to an hour depending on where in the metro you live), but it's a most beautiful drive, and worth it for the always fun, interesting, and well done shows by DalekoArts.
