    - For sixty years, Queen Elizabeth II has met with each of her twelve Prime Ministers in a private weekly audience. The discussions are utterly secret, even to the royal and ministerial spouses. Playwright Peter Morgan imagines these meetings over the decades of the Queen’s remarkable reign, through Prime Ministers from Winston Churchill and Margaret Thatcher to the 2015 incumbent David Cameron. THE AUDIENCE is a glimpse into the woman behind the crown, and the moments that have shaped the modern monarchy. A Zenith Players Production, Directed by TJ Reisnner

  • | 5:30pm - 7:00pm | Arts and Entertainment, museum, tour, Stickley, Halloween, special
    - Our tour begins as night falls. But there’s no need to be frightened! By the 1910s, Halloween, not yet a holiday for children, was a night for amusement and superstition, mischief and fortune telling. Victorian era sensibilities had transformed traditional macabre customs associated with the night into playful parlor games and tricks, which provided a clever guise for match-making and romance at society parties. Additionally, the popularity and growing appeal of Spiritualism and its demonstrations of mediumship provided both entertainment and spiritual catharsis for the grieving and curious.

    Join us for this after-hours tour, where this October it's 1913! Light refreshments will follow to keep your spirits up!
