Holiday Vignettes
18-19 December
Strange things are afoot with the Hegeler's staff.
On the surface it looks like just an ordinary day at the Mansion, but there seems to be an undertone of chaos among the maids, butler and footmen who are preparing for the Hegeler's holiday soiree.
Guests at this evening event will tour the Mansion with one of our maids and visit with the Hegeler family & their friends in period dress as each room will give you a different peek into the Victorian Holidays.
The halls are decorated for the occasion.
This theatrical tour featuring local stars from Stage 212, Engle Lane, IVCC and the local high schools always sells out quickly and is a fun annual tradition.  Don't miss it!


Advanced ticket sales for Hegeler Carus Mansion Insiders and all who have made an annual gift to support the Mansion in the amount $100 or more will begin at noon on Friday, November 13, 2015.  

Watch your email for a link to purchase tickets!
Remaining tickets go on sale to the general public on Friday, November 20, 2015.


Tickets include a one hour theater tour followed by a festive beverage from the Hegeler's wine cellar and holiday cookies.
