THE HAUNTING OF AVONDALE THEATER

is the story of eleven year-old Susan Heminway, a

 R-E-S-O-U-R-S-E-F-U-L fifth grade spelling champ who moves in with her grandmother, only to discover that the abandoned theater on her property was the site of a teenage girl’s tragic death decades earlier.
     Upon Susan’s and her spunky younger sister’s arrival, the dead girl’s spiteful spirit arises and haunts them, repeatedly uttering “the play’s the thing.” After learning what the phrase means, Susan and her new friends realize they must restore the theater and put on a certain play to discover the girl’s killer, and they must hurry before a local developer seizes the property from the bankrupt grandmother and razes the buildings. If time runs out and the theater is destroyed, the mystery of who killed the teenage girl will never be known and the troubled spirit will never rest in peace.
