"Phantom of the Auditorium" is the seventh episode of season one of the Goosebumps TV series. It premiered on December 1, 1995 on Fox Kids Network.



When Brooke gets the lead in a school play about a Phantom, she is thrilled . . . until the nightmares begin. At school there is talk of a real Phantom who has haunted the auditorium for years. Brooke tries to laugh it off. But when haunting messages appear on set, a trap door is discovered on stage, and a piece of scenery comes crashing down, it's no joke. Is Zeke, her best friend, up to his foolish pranks again? Or is Brooke's jealous understudy, Tina, up to no good? Maybe the answer lies beneath the stage, through the trap door, and at the end of the tunnel.
