Details Join the dashing Lieutenant Ranslaer Schuyler by lamplight inside the historic Queen’s Battery Barracks. Step inside, take your seat, and prepare for thrills and chills as local lore and legends unfold. 

As night gathers, you’ll feel the sails cut through the Harbour as you are warned of the arrival of strange superstitions and phantom ships. You’ll hear about daring escapes, murdered pirates, ghost ships, buried treasure, tragic drownings, and headless phantoms; local legends and traditions that have hardened and haunted folks across time.

Bring along your flashlight and get the full experience of discovery as you climb up and down the hill (before and after) the indoor performance.

Will you be able to handle the intrigue?
