Experience a New Show from those who have pleased crowds in the past.
This October see an historical entertainment on the many EXTRAORDINARY ideas, beliefs and objects with which people in the 1820s would have been familiar. Images and phenomena to be considered include VISUALIZATION OF THE SUPERNATURAL, Phantasmagoria, Frankenstein, Animal Magnetism and THE COURT OF DEATH. While visitors maneuver the historic site they will come into contact with those who lived there in 1828 as they hear about what thrilled, scared and horrified Savannahians of that time. Attention will be paid to spiritual convictions of Lowcountry African Americans of the past.
Not suitable for children under 12 years of age.
The performance requires that guests be able to walk up and down stairs and maneuver in the candlelit rooms.
