2022-2023 Candlelight Theatre Season

After 19 years of partnership, the Benjamin Harrison Presidential Site and Candlelight Theatre are proud to announce the 2022-2023 theatre season!

We will begin the season with The Haunted States of America by James Trofatter. This progressive play encompasses the entire mansion as guests are led on a voyage through the United States to meet apparitions of some of the country’s most haunted places.

  • The Haunted States of America: October 14, 15, 22, 23, 28 & 29, 2022.

Candlelight Theatre’s holiday performance is Deck the Halls by resident playwright, James Trofatter. Join us as we sing familiar holiday songs while learning the stories and traditions behind them.

  • Deck the Halls: December 8, 9, 10 & 11, 2022.

A new event begins in February with Hoosier H’Arts, a celebration of Valentine’s Day, Black History Month and Indiana poets. This exclusive one-evening event features hors d’oeuvres followed by readings by some of Indiana’s best loved poets.

  • Hoosier H’Arts: February 11, 2023.

Classic Murder is Candlelight Theatre’s spring signature performance. Three mystery plays based on the writings of Agatha Christie, Shirley Jackson and Edgar Allan Poe will be presented salon-style in three different rooms of the mansion.

  • Classic Murder: April 14, 15, 21, 22, 23, 28 & 29, 2023.
