After 15 years of partnership, the Benjamin Harrison Presidential Site and Candlelight Theatre are proud to announce the 2018-2019 theatre season!
The season begins in October with The (White) House of Horrors by resident playwright, James Trofatter. The stage will encompass most of the mansion, with every scene taking a new twist and turn through historic rooms. It’s perfect for an eerily fun Halloween outing!
The company’s popular holiday tradition, ‘Twas the Night Before… by James Trofatter, will show in December 2018. This popular production will include beloved characters from holiday lore and introduce new festive friends. With the mansion frosted in all its holiday finery, it’s the perfect way to get in the spirit of the season!
Murder and the Macabre will be the company’s spring show. The April 2019 performances will include a trilogy of one-act thrillers, rotating through the Presidential mansion, complete with candlelight, historical artifacts and the rich ambiance of President Harrison’s original furnishings.
The season will conclude in the Summer of 2019 with Night Watch by Lucille Fletcher, a mystery play that follows a woman who’s frantic pleas to the police are met with skepticism. The plot moves quickly and grippingly to a riveting and chilling climax.
