Espionage Dinner Theater

Event Description

Join us for our first dinner theater program at the CSS Neuse! 

This program will begin with a short presentation on female spies and their contributions during the Civil War. Emeline Pigott, Belle Boyd, Rose O' Neil Greenhow, Elizabeth Van Lew, and Harriet Tubman are a few of the spies who will be recognized.

While visitors enjoy a catered dinner, Kelly Hinson will perform a one-woman play as Rose O’Neil Greenhow. Following the presentation, visitors will enjoy interactive and educational spy activities in the museum. See how women would hide letters, medicine, and other contraband. Learn how to decode messages and how the telegraph was a strategic communication tool. 

This will be a fun event you and your family will not want to miss! Press registration is required! Register online or contact Rachel Kennedy at the site.
