Or was it the butler? Or the Legendary Mannerly Ghost? During the show, the elements of a mystery story are discussed, and audience members are given the chance to guess the solution. By the end, it is discovered that there is more than one secret within Mannerly Mansion, and one goes all the way back to the time of the Underground Railroad. Tickets are $5 per child at the door; adult caregivers are admitted free. Showtime is 10-11 a.m.
