The Wraith House story
Wraith House is California non-profit organization, officially Murphey Arts & Charitable Entertainment, Inc., dba Wraith House, and is family-owned and operated. We started haunting in 2017 and every year our haunt gets more intense and more professional. This is the passion of our two directors – Matt Murphey & Payton “Tito” Murphey – and it has grown to something the entire family has poured themselves into, with the support of many others in the community. For example, Todd, Skylar, and Caylin have dedicated themselves to the success of the haunt, simply because they love it, helping build, create, and grow Wraith House at every turn.
Matt and Tito, and increasingly Tito's younger sisters Nadia and Morgan as well, love the thrill of the scare and the art of the grotesque. They also have a passion for encouraging theatrical endeavors and opportunities for kids and young adults, and they have intentionally designed Wraith House to be primarily an opportunity for teens and young adults to get to express themselves, to learn and grow, and to transform themselves into an unfamiliar, fantastical character in a world completely different than any they experience anywhere else. While Wraith House is a professional haunt that uses top of the line makeup, props, and effects, what is most important is that its actors and crew have fun with their artistic expression and that its customers experience the excitement of being truly terrified, in a safe and respectful environment.
