Nautical Nightmares Returns to Mystic Seaport
Theatrical Performances Inspired by Edgar Allan Poe
Mystic Seaport announces the return of its Halloween production, Nautical Nightmares, beginning October 16.
The performance is a dramatic experience that explores ghost tales, legends and unsolved mysteries of days gone by. This year’s production, “Tales of Terror: An Evening with Poe,” invites visitors to join “Mr. Poe” as he progresses through scenes around the Museum grounds in fear of, or perhaps to embrace, the evil that surrounds him. Inspired by the works of Edgar Allen Poe, the performance incorporates themes and bits from his works to weave a tale of eeriness and horror.
Performance nights are October 16-17, 23-24, and 30. Tours begin nightly at 6 p.m. and leave every 15 minutes from the Museum’s main entrance.
Ticket prices are $25 for adults ($21 for members) and $20 for youth ages 12-17 ($16 for members). Tickets can be purchased online at www.mysticseaport.org/nauticalnightmares or by calling 860.572.5331.
Nautical Nightmares is recommended for children ages 12 and older. Visitors will be walking outdoors along both dirt and stone paths and are encouraged to wear appropriate footwear.
