Weld Hall and its ghost

We went to see Weld Hall on the Minnesota State University Moorhead campus. This intimate hall will host the CORPS premiere on the 18th. One of staff members was so helpful that I complimented him on it and he commented on the fact that he was raised in Western North Dakota, where a person's word was his bond and that kind of thing was still part of they way people worked up here. Can we clone this guy?

Weld Hall has a very steep metal spiral staircase backstage--it is how you get down to the dressing room level. Apparently there is a ghost story associated with it--the story goes that a theather techie fell down the staircase and broke both his legs and neck. His ghost has been seen dancing on the stage, minus his legs.
