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):

erlandlee_1300752537    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.
