For four years of my life I was part of Cry Innocent, a live performance, interactive trial based on the manuscripts of a witch trial in Salem in 1692. For at least three shows a day a cast of four men and four women would play various roles of historical characters.
The trial begins on the streets of Salem with an arrest.
Performances ran three times a day with a cast that rotated through the roles. Here I am playing Bridget and apparently interacting with a very sweet faced little boy, though I am sure I was not being kind . . .
I also loved playing sisters with my friend Heidi. Here Lori and Heidi are cracking the audience up . . .
No digital pictures when these pics were taken, I love that you can see three different characters in this picture . . .
Each show would have five cast members. Here is a show from 1997 (despite the ’87 mark) . . .
Here are a couple of the Cry Innocent Casts that I had the privilege being a part of, I was the production manager of these two casts . . .
I loved being a part of this show and am grateful for years spent doing historic theater in a town that I love.
