On the inside you’ll walk the Grand Staircase, visit the Captains Bridge, see the difference between First Class and Third Class passenger cabins. This recreation is stunningly accurate, and through modern technology it gives voice to the 2203 who perished in the wreck.
You will also time for shopping today The Island before taking your seats for a night of rollicking laughter as you watch what happens when 2 quarrelsome Southern families attempt to enjoy a Christmas dinner together. If you think your family gatherings can get out of hand, wait till you see the shenanigans that unfold during this Yuletide misadventure. You’re invited to join Pa Hatfield and Ma McCoy, the heads of 2 families that have never taken kindly to each other. After agreeing to set aside their differences and gather for a holiday feast, things quickly take a turn for the zany. Arguments erupt, insults fly, and their family gathering is transformed into a raucous comedy of errors. Slapstick stunts, hilarious song and dance, and plenty of side-splitting humor burst from the stage as the hijinks progress.
Tonight enjoy a delicious dinner at Five Oaks Farm Kitchen.
