Families and children are invited to explore an exhibit of objects and creatures from the planet New Galapagos featured in the immersive theater production, H.T. Darling’s Incredible Musaeum. The day includes puppetry, puppet making and theater activities. The December 9th Family Day is free, and open to the public 10am–1pm.
Running from November 16-December 17, the H.T. Darling’s Incredible Musaeum immersive theater production centers on explorer H.T. Darling and his team as they present a showcase of artifacts brought back from an expedition to the planet of New Galapagos. Audience members choose their own path through the evening’s events, and may take part in a champagne toast, tour a Grand Exhibition Hall, witness the unveiling of the planet’s newly discovered species and explore more than a dozen rooms in the Peale Center in downtown Baltimore. The relaunch of the award-winning show features the same cast, but includes new story lines and new creatures of the fantastical world of New Galapagos.
Created by a team of more than 20 Baltimore artists, the performance and installation activates all four floors of The Peale Center. (Not coincidentally, The Peale is the first building in the country built to be a museum.) Each room has a unique purpose and offers audience members the chance to uncover details of a many-faceted narrative.
H.T. Darling’s Incredible Musaeum and Submersive recently won three combined 2017 Best of Baltimore awards from Baltimore magazine and City Paper. Accolades include BEST ONE-OF-A-KIND THEATER COMPANY (Baltimore magazine), BEST ACTOR (for the entire ensemble; City Paper), and BEST PROPOSAL TO MY MOM (City Paper).
Performances of H.T. Darling’s Incredible Musaeum will be at 8 p.m. Thursday-Friday, and at 7 p.m. Saturday-Sunday. Tickets are $20-$55 and will sell out so get yours now!
