    NEW PORT RICHEY - The ghost in the balcony of the Richey Suncoast Theatre has a preference for seat BB 1.

    Charlie Skelton, president of the theater's board of directors, has never seen the apparition. But for at least the past 10 years, he's heard the accounts. Young people, mostly, swear they have seen a man occupying the aisle seat in the upper right side of the balcony.

    He just watches. He has never paid for a ticket. Most have taken to referring to him as Willard, as in Willard Clark.

    Clark has been dead for more than 20 years. A plaque on the front of the Grand Boulevard building, dedicated in June 1982, honors him as "Mister Theatre" and a patron of the arts.

    Some patrons who have heard the ghost stories seek out Clark's favorite seat. Others refuse to take it, Skelton said.

    "Maybe they don't want to sit on Willard's lap," he quipped.
