Nautical Nightmares Returns to Mystic Seaport Museum October 12-28

October 12, 2018 - October 28, 2018

Nautical Nightmares Returns to Mystic Seaport Museum October 12-28

Mystic Seaport Museum announces the return of its Halloween theatrical production, Nautical Nightmares, beginning October 12 and running through October 28. Nautical Nightmares is inspired by the works of H. P. Lovecraft.

The performance is a dramatic experience that explores ghost tales, legends and unsolved mysteries of days gone by. This year’s show, “Nautical Nightmares: Madness on the Mystic River,” is inspired by the works of H. P. Lovecraft, who, according to Stephen King, was “the 20th century’s greatest practitioner of the classic horror tale.” Visitors in small, guided groups join the alienists of Arkham to investigate a haunted whaleship and the madness that has descended throughout the town of Mystic. The story is related through a series of scenes as the group navigates a path through the Museum’s village and waterfront.

Performance nights are October 12-13, 19-20, and 26-28. Tours run 6-10 p.m. and leave every 15 minutes from the Museum’s main entrance.

Ticket prices are $25 for adults ($21 for Museum members) and $20 for youth ages 12-17 ($16 for Museum members). Tickets can be purchased online at www.mysticseaport.org/nauticalnightmares or by calling 860-572-5331. Advance registration is required.

Nautical Nightmares is recommended for children ages 12 and older. Visitors will be walking outdoors along both dirt and stone paths and are encouraged to wear appropriate footwear.
