Drawing for Seamen’s Bethel Seats
Part of the Marathon takes place across the street from the Museum at the famous Seamen’s Bethel, where Herman Melville found his inspiration for Father Mapple’s legendary sermon. Seating is very limited, so you must enter a drawing to get a coveted seat in the Bethel. Enter the drawing (available here soon) and we will notify you in advance if your name is selected. Don’t fret if your name isn’t selected; you can still enjoy the live streaming marathon from the comfort of the Museum’s theater.
