Every year, the Holiday Candlelight Tours event kicks off with a special opening night performance for Sotterley Members, which is another great reason to become a member of Sotterley! What is it exactly? It is a party!!! This is our way of thanking a very important part of the Sotterley family. It is a lovely evening of merriment ... food, drink, fun ... and THE TOUR!
Returning from their scheduled tour times of "Sotterley Christmas Past," members could be heard giving their effusive praise of this year's script and performance. One person had tears in her eyes, as she spoke of connecting with the story and the incredible actors. Another, a direct descendant of one of the Sotterley owners from way back, was absolutely delighted with how the script represented his family.
