Held at Rokeby Museum in the Historic Robinson Home
Program lasts about an hour, limited to 10 people per group.

Masks required indoors.

In the 1840s, the Robinsons held séances in the historic Rokeby home. Join us on Halloween weekend as we introduce you to the spiritualist history at Rokeby. Ticket holders will gather for hot cider and a short introduction to spiritualism before a “spirit” of Rokeby guides them into the historic home to experience a staged reading of séances that took place inside the home, drawn from transcripts in the collection. This participatory dramatization allows you to witness what an actual séance was like for the Robinsons 180 years ago.

Actors: Landon DePaulo, Madeleine Murray, and J. Louis Reid.
Costumes provided by Middlebury Community Players. 

Tickets are limited and selling fast with some sessions already sold out (as indicated above), so get your tickets now!
