Who doesn’t love a good mystery?
And how many times have you thought you could solve a mystery yourself?
Well here’s your chance!
Mystic Seaport’s first-ever interactive Maritime Mystery tour makes its debut Saturday, July 4, and continues on consecutive Saturday evenings through September 5th (excluding August 1).
The setting is the Museum’s 19th-century village. By interrogating witnesses and interviewing suspects (played by the Mystic Seaport TaleMakers), visitors, aka detective sleuths, will attempt to uncover foul play behind a mysterious plot. Investigations begin at 6:30 and 7 p.m. during July; 6 and 6:30 p.m. in August; 6 p.m. September. You have 70 minutes to help solve the mystery!
Here’s an important clue: Per person tickets for the mystery tour are $16, but talk some friends into sleuthing with you, and the price drops to $15 each for a group of 3 or 4; $14 each for a group of 5 or 6. (Maritime Mystery is recommended for older children, teens and adults).
To purchase tickets for your sleuthing adventure, visit www.mysticseaport.org/maritimemystery or call 860.572.5322.
But you say playing detective isn’t your thing? Mystic Seaport has you covered.
Friday and Sunday evenings through September 6 (excluding July 31 and August 2), Museum visitors can enjoy a tasty three-course meal outdoors at Schaefer’s Spouter Tavern followed by a performance of Eugene O’Neill’s play, Ile. The harrowing one-act play tells the tale of an Arctic whaling captain, his wife and the obsession that threatens all that they hold dear. (Recommended for age 15 and older.)
Now here’s the really cool part – the performers, the Mystic Seaport TaleMakers, will use the L.A. Dunton as their stage. The Mystic River is a perfect backdrop.
Show time during July is 7:15 p.m.; August 7-22 – 6:45 p.m.; August 28-September 6th – 6:15 p.m.
Dinner theater tickets are $45 per person ($40 for members) and include dinner, gratuity and the performance. Wine, beer and non-alcoholic beverages will be available for purchase. Choice of entrée will be made at the time of ticket purchase.
