Mystic Seaport Lantern Light Tours Begin November 24

November 24 - December 23

$18.95 - $28.95

Mystic Seaport will open the 2017 season of its Lantern Light Tours Friday, November 24.

A New England holiday tradition, Lantern Light Tours is a 70-minute progressive play that is set on Christmas Eve in 1876. Featuring actors from Connecticut and neighboring states, the cast weaves a heart-warming holiday story in the setting of the historic buildings and vessels of the Museum.

For 2017, the story is “The Spirit of the Holiday: A Christmas Ghost Story.” Set on Christmas Eve in the year 1876, the play unfolds through five scenes of historical hilarity showcasing some unexpected holiday traditions and a little help from a Victorian spiritualist.

Visitors join a group of 16 to tour the Museum’s seaport village, stopping at designated points to take in the next chapter of the story. Along the way, they will enjoy a gentlemen’s athletic contest, a spirited circle dance, a visit with old St. Nick, a horse and carriage ride, and a scene on board one of the Museum’s historic vessels.

Performances are November 24-25, December 1-2, 8-9, 15-17, and 22-23. Tours begin at 5 p.m. and leave every 15 minutes.
