Deep River Legend Showcased in CT River Museum’s Production

What do history, theater and Halloween have in common?  Why it’s Haunted River at the Connecticut River Museum in Essex!  This 5 scene play/haunted walking tour takes place on the grounds of the museum this October. This year will be the 3rd version of Haunted River featuring all new stories based on folklore, myths and legends of the Connecticut River Valley.

One of the stories features Deep River’s famous XYZ bandit and the lady in black legend retold with all Deep River actors and Deep River based dance troupe Wild Angels.  Not only do we explore the identity of the women in black, the overlooked hero Harry Tyler will get the credit he deserves for risking his life and saving the town’s money.

The tale of XYZ plus four other historically inspired scenes will complete this year’s guided tour on the CRM’s campus the weekend before Halloween, October 25th, 26th and 27th, 2019.  Tours of 15 fun loving people run every 20 minutes from 6:00 to 8:40 PM Friday and Saturday, 6:00 to 7:40 PM on Sunday and will take about 50 minutes.  Cost for adults is $17.00, children 7-12 is $13,00, not recommended for children under 7.  Please visit ctrivermuseum.org for more details.
