After 18 years of partnership, the Benjamin Harrison Presidential Site and Candlelight Theatre are proud to announce the 2021 theatre season!
We will start the season with Death in the Library by Jo Smedley as the company’s spring show. The April 2021 performances guests will work in teams of eight, guests will interrogate the suspects, gather clues, and solve the crime. A prize will be awarded to the winning team each evening.
The season will continue in the Summer of 2021 with Not/Guilty by James Trofatter. This one hour drama with an audience talkback highlights the infamous murder trial of Nancy Clem. The prosecuting attorney, Benjamin Harrison, and Nancy Clem rejoin in the afterlife to discuss exactly how the murder and trial unfolded.
Join us in October with The Haunted States of America 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 newest holiday tradition, Deck the Halls by James Trofatter, will debut in December 2021. This production will include beloved holiday songs, the myths and legends behind them, and the festive friends who make them come to life. With the mansion frosted in all its holiday finery, it’s the perfect way to get in the spirit of the season!
