The Lantern Light Tours

Saturday, Dec. 27, 2014, 5:00 pm


Mystic Seaport, 75 Greenmanville Ave., Mystic, CT

The tour is a 70-minute progressive play that takes its audience back to Christmas Eve 1876. A cast of almost 70 people, including actors from Connecticut and neighboring states, tells a new heart-warming holiday story each year. This year the script was written by Connecticut playwright Jacques Lamarre. Titled, “Mystic’s Christmas Conniption,” the story plays off the traditional carol “Twelve Days of Christmas” to craft a tale of goodwill and seasonal cheer.
Visitors join a group of 16 to tour the museum’s 19th-century village on foot, stopping at designated points to take in the next chapter of the story. As in years past, this year’s production will include a traditional tavern dance, a sweet treat, a horse-and-carriage ride, and a visit from St. Nicholas. Performances are Nov. 29, Dec. 5, 6, 12, 13, 19, 20, 21, 26 and 27. Tours begin at 5 p.m. and leave every 15 minutes.
Advance reservations are strongly recommended for all Lantern Light Tours. Tickets are $30 for adults ($25 for Seaport members) and $23 for children ages 5-17 ($18 for youth members). Tours are not recommended for children under 4.
The tour route covers uneven terrain and tour-goers will walk or stand for the entire production and are advised to wear appropriate footwear and dress for the weather. Visitors are asked to indicate the need for a handicap-accessible tour at the time of reservation.
Tickets may be purchased at, or by calling (860) 572-5331.
