The team here at All Hallows’ Haunts (@HallowsHaunts) had the privilege of attending a special sneak preview of the latest project from our good friends at Force of Nature Productions: Micah Cover’s Haunted House Calls. The show is an original creation by the show’s star, Micah Cover (@MicahCover). Force of Nature Productions founder, Sebastian Muñoz (@CiNeMaMaN8), serves as producer, director and tech magician.
As we entered the theatre, we were greeted by chilling music and unearthly sounds. The seats were covered to give the appearance that the theatre was old, haunted by the ghosts of past. The doors close and Professional Magician and AMA/Magic Castle Member, Micah Cover, enters and, over the course of the evening, tells a ghost story through magic- the story of two souls separated by fate, time and tragedy. The audience was transported back to 1945 and watched through magic, the story of these doomed lovers, all the while entranced by the magic and mystery of the evening- ultimately by the end, the audience was graced by the presence of the ghosts of the doomed lovers.

The show made for a hauntingly magical night. Micah crafted the tale so well that the audience is entranced by the story. With the structure of the show, its audience interactive, with members throughout the evening joining Micah on stage as he weaves them into the tale.
Micah Cover is the true gem of this show. His personality, showmanship and his skill as a master magician created the perfect recipe for an amazing night. He engages the audience, has moments of pure comedy and these amazing moments as he clearly feels the torment and pain the doomed lovers went through as they were torn apart from one another.
There are moments where you laugh and moments where you cry. But you are always amazed and interested. There are no dull or unnecessary moments in the show. It’s a wonderfully crafted evening of magic, ghosts and theatre.
