Walter Shay (born 1937) is a stagehand who worked on Candle Cove. He was interviewed in Candle Cove Experiences: Tales of the Laughingstock.


He is paralyzed, having to use a wheelchair. He describes his time working on the show as a curse, as he had broke his leg when a ladder fell on him, and he had to witness the dark spiral of the show as it progressed to the second season.

He witnessed Emerson Grimes' death, burned his body, and buried in the woods behind the studio.
