"Victorian Villains" presented by Candlelight Theatre

October 13, 14, 20, 21, and 22, 2017

This October, visit the Benjamin Harrison Presidential Site as it's unexpectedly beset by a host of the most villainous villains from history. Just when the world thought it was rid of Lizzie Borden, Sweeney Todd, H.H. Holmes and Jack the Ripper, a local team of crime scene investigators have discovered a nefarious plot to bring them back to life! 

In this frightful performance of Victorian Villains, guests will partner with their crime scene handler to uncover the sordid tales of the villains. Are you ready to face these fiendish creators of chaos and carnage, so that we can learn from their twisted and tormented minds to protect society as we know it... before it's too late?!
Be sure to make your reservations early for this spine-tingling performance. (Performances will sell out; reservations are strongly suggested).
