Rancho Los Cerritos To Host An Evening of Victorian Enchantment
2015-09-23 · By Editor
Prepare to be enchanted and relive the mystery of Victorian magic as Victor Ian Élan provides a unique journey back in time in this interactive and awe-inspiring show, Soirées Mystique, on Saturday, October 24, 2015, at Rancho Los Cerritos Historic Site. Shows are offered at 6 p.m. and 8 p.m.
Victor Ian Élan is a Southern California-based performer of magical and psychic entertainment. Guests will witness demonstrations of 19th century conjuring, observe experiments in Victorian mind reading, and even participate in an authentic antebellum spirit séance show—something that the Rancho’s first owner, John Temple, engaged in in the 1860s! The show will take place inside the historic Rancho Los Cerritos library, which will become an intimate stage for intrigue and deception.
Seating for Soirées Mystique is limited to 35 per show. Tickets are $45 and advance reservations are required by calling (562) 206-2040.
Rancho Los Cerritos Historic Site is a public museum open for tours, programs, and special events. Built in 1844, the Rancho’s adobe home and grounds echo with the rich history of Spanish, Mexican, and American California and with the families who helped transform Southern California from its ranching beginnings to the modern, urban society it is today. The two-story Monterey-style adobe is primarily furnished to reflect occupants and lifestyles from the 1860s-1880s. The site, a National, State and Long Beach Historic Landmark, also includes historic gardens and a research library and archives. It is operated by the Rancho Los Cerritos Foundation in a public/private partnership with the City of Long Beach.
