Cry Innocent at your school, or at the Old Town Hall.

Cry Innocent is the longest continuously-running show north of Boston. Featured on the Discovery Channel, the Travel Channel, A&E, Nickelodeon, TLC, NPR, BBC, CNN and MTV. If your group is unable to attend a Cry Innocent show at the Old Town Hall in Salem, you can also have a witch trial in your own school! We are happy to travel and perform Cry Innocent for you at your school or venue. This allows your students to interact with the actors, ask questions of the witnesses and participate in the pre-examination trial of Bridget Bishop without leaving the classroom. This curriculum enrichment program enhances the students knowledge of the Salem Witchcraft Trials in a way that is memorable and fun. This time there is no need to deal with buses and permission slips…let us come to you!

The cost for a show at your school starts at $1000 per performance. Dates and times are flexible. Please email for more information or to schedule a performance.

The cost for an off-season show (September, November-June) for your group at the Old Town Hall is $15.00/ person--$600 minimum. Ask about adding a private walking tour with our licensed tour guides to your group’s summer or off-season Salem witch trials experience.
