Goosebumps Wiki

Woods Mill is a town featured in the twenty-fourth Goosebumps book, Phantom of the Auditorium.


As the majority of Phantom of the Auditorium takes place within Woods Mill Middle School, we hear more about it than we do the town it's located in. As protagonists, Brooke and Zeke, prepare for their roles in the school's upcoming play, The Phantom, their teacher, Ms. Walker tells them of Woods Mill's troubled history with the play.

According to her, when the school was first built, The Phantom was set to be performed. Hoping to make it a memorable performance, the school used the best special effects they could create, including a trap door in the stage that would allow the titular Phantom to appear and disappear. However, things soon went wrong. On the night of the performance, the boy set to play the phantom vanished. Despite constant searching, he was never found.

Now that the school is putting the play back on, strange things are happening. The stories about the missing boy becoming a real phantom seem to be coming true.
