{Tour Guide with a Lantern}
A New England Holiday Tradition Presented by Citizens Bank
Join us for the 35th annual theatrical production of Lantern Light Tours at Mystic Seaport. Set on Christmas Eve in 1876, this play unfolds through five scenes in exhibits around the Museum’s 19th-century maritime village. Both young and old will enjoy seasonal delights that include a horse-drawn carriage ride, a spirited holiday dance, the beautiful glow of lanterns that light the way and, just perhaps, a visit with old St. Nick!
This year’s original Lantern Light Tours script has been written by acclaimed playwright Jacques Lamarre. Inspired by the traditional carol “The Twelve Days of Christmas,” the story is filled with seasonal hilarity as the citizens of Greenmanville attempt to deliver some unexpected Christmas gifts.
Each Lantern Light Tour is a 70-minute progressive performance that covers approximately half a mile of uneven terrain (including cobblestone, wood planking, grass, gravel, and stairs) and is performed in all weather conditions. Audience members walk or stand for the majority of the performance, so please wear appropriate footwear and dress for the weather conditions.
To provide the best experience for the audience, each tour is limited to 16 people. Performances are appropriate for all ages, though not recommended for children under the age of 4.

2014 Performance Dates: November 29, December 5, 6, 12, 13, 19, 20, 21, 26 and 27. Snow Date: December 28
Tours begin at 5 p.m. and leave every 15 minutes. If a tour is canceled due to inclement weather, tour-goers may transfer their tickets to the snow date. Please call 860.572.0711 with questions about weather cancellations.
Lantern Light Tours require a special ticket in lieu of general admission. Pre-registration is encouraged as tours fill up quickly. Tickets can be purchased online or by calling the Membership Department at 860.572.5331.
Ticket Prices: adult: $30 (member $25) / youth, ages 5-17: $23 (member youth: $18) / children ages 4 and younger are admitted for free.
Mystic Seaport is a museum that strives to inspire an enduring connection to the American maritime experience.
