At the Old Town Hall in Salem, the players of the History Alive! acting troupe don the garb of Puritan citizens and slip into the roles of the Salem witch trials' accused and accusers during its signature performance, Cry Innocent. The play depicts the trial of the doomed Bridget Bishop, her supposed victims, and the other villagers, with professional actors staying in character even when communicating with the audience. Through its interactive productions, the company hopes to provide viewers with new insights on not only the 1690's, but the present day. The company's past and future productions include a comedic murder mystery centered around Cpt. Joseph White.
Film buffs across six states stare wide-eyed at large cinema screens, losing themselves in first-run Hollywood movies and the smell of fresh, buttery kernels within Your Neighborhood Theatre's 17 locations. Though all theaters prioritize comfortable seating, old-fashioned friendly service, and high-stakes preshow trivia slideshows, each location encompasses its own distinct charm, be it through arthouse décor, 3-D screens, or Rhode Island's vintage 1950's drive-in setting.
After starting in 2006 with a single 17-foot Boston Whaler, All Cape Boat Rentals’ owners knew they needed to expand their fleet. In the seven years since then, they’ve welcomed 11 new Whalers to their watercraft family, which now includes boats ranging from 16–25 feet in length. They rent out their vessels to wayfarers of all stripes, from the weekender looking for a one-hour joyride to the salty veteran in search of a full-season rental. The boats can journey as far out as Lewis Bay for a sighting of the three-hour lifespan of the Egg Island sandbar, or stay close to home in Hyannis Harbor with a stop at Baxter’s Boathouse. For an extra fee, clients can attach a line and pair of skis or an inner tube, or use one of the boat’s rod holders to comb the waves for tuna or mackerel. In addition to its stable of Whalers, All Cape Boat Rentals also maintains a fleet of Yamaha WaveRunner VX Sports for riders who want to conquer the surf through sheer power.
South Shore Sports Center invites athletic enthusiasts to engage in such sports as soccer, basketball, and lacrosse within its massive sports and entertainment complex. Groups can rent one of the three fields for their ball-based diversions, each featuring all-purpose synthetic surfaces that make them ideal for lacrosse or soccer on the turf fields and basketball or uncomfortable napping on the hard courts. In conjunction with the recreational revelry, the center also hosts birthday parties, clinics, and summer camps geared toward athletic improvement.
Back and Body Pilates Studio is helmed by accomplished instructor Mary Kim-Garrity and supported by a staff of Pilates Institute–educated trainers, who nudge students in the direction of galvanized cores, stretched-out flexibility, and ousted aches and pains. During private classes, you'll glean foundational knowledge from the masters on postures and movements. The group sessions are designed with small-class dynamics in mind, allowing participants to reap the motivating benefits of peer fitness while still receiving individual attention and tailored workouts from the teacher. Pick a package of both private and group sessions, or surprise your body with more personal attention by choosing to concentrate on privatized Pilates—either way, bodies will find themselves more supple, more self-aware, and less inclined to hug bears.
