Masquerade of the Red Death
Sat., June 14, 8-11 p.m. 2014
$45 includes two glasses of Poe-Blend wine (or other beverages) and appetizers served by the castle’s jesters.
The Insomniac Theatre Company will transform the Seven Sister's Inn into an Edgar Allan Poe themed "House of Horrors" based on several of Edgar Allan Poe's stories with a main theme of The Mask of the Red Death. The company pays tribute to the short story's 172nd anniversary with an extensive indoor-outdoor production, performing scenes from the famous tale and a few other choice Poe classics, while guests cavort with magicians, wizards and roving characters. Each and every one of the "castle's" rooms will be done up with the tale's iconic hues and special effects to create that spooky mood Poe was famous for. Guests are requested to dress in Masked Victorian Ball costumes and refrain from wearing red. Overnight packages are offered by the inn for the opportunity to sleep in the castle.
