Wethersfield Historical Society’s historic Hurlbut-Dunham House (212 Main Street, Wethersfield) has been festively decorated for the holidays and ready to celebrate a Victorian Christmas. The house will be open for free tours the first two weekends in December (Saturdays, December 3 & 10 and Sundays, December 4 & 11) from 1:00 pm to 4:00 pm.
On Friday, December 9 at 7:00 pm and again on Saturday, December 10 at 5:00 pm, Wethersfield Historical Society and Time’s Fool Company present a unique retelling of Charles Dickens’ beloved classic, “A Christmas Carol”. Featuring only one actor and one cellist, the performance takes place in the Keeney Memorial Cultural Center’s intimate Ballroom (200 Main Street, Wethersfield, CT). Listen as the characters, sounds, and music transport you to Victorian England and the magical season of Christmas. Cider and donuts will be provided. This production is given for the benefit of two Wethersfield non-profits, Time’s Fool and Wethersfield Historical Society.
Adult tickets are $25 each, Children 16 and under are $10. (Children 2 and under are admitted free of charge). Tickets are available online HERE or if you would prefer to purchase tickets in person, please visit the society’s offices in the Old Academy, 150 Main Street, Wethersfield, CT, Tuesday through Friday, 10:00 am to 4:00 pm.
As last Saturday’s Witch of Blackbird Pond Ball fades into pleasant memory, it’s nice to take a look at the digital scrapbook and relive some of the evening’s highlights; Melinda Robidoux’s atmospheric decoration of the Keeney Ballroom, Ascot Catering’s amazing food, emcee Renee Di Nino overseeing the evening’s festivities, DJ Joey Brooks providing the perfect soundtrack, and the amazing costumes. To see some of what your friends and neighbors are talking about, visit the photo galleries toward the bottom of the dedicated Witch of Blackbird Pond Ball page. If you were unable to attend this year, start making plans for next.
