Great show but not for kids. The actors were excellent. Knew their parts, back stories etc so well. Audience participation is encouraged and makes it all the more interesting. These stories should never be forgotten.

This 1692 re-enactment of a town meeting (essentially today's grand jury process) was spot on. Young actors and actresses play multiple roles as they work through witnesses and accusations of Goodie Bishop, the accused witch practitioner. The experience engages the audience with many subtle and...More

It starts on the pedestrian street in the center then goes to the old town hall. You can buy your tickets at the cart on the pedestrian street.

When you buy your tickets at the pushcart in front of the building where they perform the trial, the person will tell you when and where the arrest will occur. It happens about a block down the street.
