Details on April 16 & 17’s LIVE HISTORY PERFORMANCE (2 different show times each sharing 2 scripts, all relating to the history of the home & Stoney Creek):
Mary’s Odyssey: Come join the young maid, Mary as she takes you on a tour of the historic house. Using Homer’s The Odyssey as the cipher, we present you a unique experience, as the audience assists Mary in solving a long-hidden mystery, leading to a treasure. Long ago, John Lee left a treasure hidden in the home, although no one has ever cracked the code.
Now, in March 1897, Erland and Janet Lee invite you to their home, to celebrate the start of the Women’s Institute, and hopefully find the treasure to help fund their noble cause. The show is a journey back to a time when the house was alive with the past. The audience will experience much about love, loss and honor while being guided through by the one set of eyes that has seen all in this home.
Catherine’s Creed: Come join Catherine, who was born and raised in the town, shortly after the memorial service of Sarah Lee Hill. James S. Hill is overcome by grief but he knows his late wife would want things this way, in her childhood home. Sarah Lee was the only person who understood Catherine’s unique personality and views on the world. But now, you will join forces with Catherine, whether you like her or not, in order to find a hidden treasure. Sarah Lee has sent each of you odd clues, letters and objects, and it is up to you to solve the puzzle and set Catherine free.
