Just in time to get folks in a spooky mood in the crisp October days leading up to Halloween, Old World Wisconsin offers three weekends of dinner theater presentations of "The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde." The dinner theater performances will be presented on Fridays and Saturdays, the last three weekends of the month: October 15-16, October 22-23 and October 29-30. Guests will enjoy a themed harvest buffet before taking a lamplit walk to the historic Caldwell Farmers' Club Hall. The play is a science fiction thriller adapted from one of Robert Louis Stevenson's most famous works.

Tis presentation of "The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde" was adapted by Noah Smith and produced by special arrangement with Playscripts, Inc.

A Murder Mystery of a Different Sort

If you happen to make reservations for one of the dinner theater presentations on Saturday, October 23, you may want to stop by Old World Wisconsin's museum store between 1 and 5:30 pm to meet mystery author and former curator at the outdoor museum, Kathleen Ernst. She will greet visitors and sign copies of her first adult mystery, "An Old World Murder." The mystery is set at Old World Wisconsin and introduces the character of Chloe Ellefson whose first day on the job as the museum's curator of collections finds her embroiled in the search for a stolen artifact and the mysterious sudden death of an elderly woman who had donated the artifact to the museum years earlier.
