History Alive!

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.
