Here's a unique, historic, Haunted Happenings experience that just might scare you out of your boots.
Spiritways: A Night in Besieged Salem Village, presented by History Alive! at Gordon College is an immersion experience that you aren't likely to soon forget. Staged at Pioneer Village: Salem 1630 in Forest River Park, Spiritways' actors take you into the dark woods with only candlelight to guide you along the paths.
The performance gives you a true sense of the fear early Salem residents lived with and some of the superstitions that helped them to explain the unknown.
After using different scripts for the first two years, this year's Spiritways repeats the script from last year. The repetition of script is no reason to miss the show, however, as there is a new director this year, Paul D'Agostino, who interprets the script in a new way.
Spiritways will be performed every Saturday in October at 7:13, 8:13, 9:13, 10:13 and 11:13 p.m. and the cost is $13. Waivers must be signed by all participants; they can be picked up at the gate or downloaded ahead of time at www.gordon.edu/historyalive/productions. Children 18 and under must have a parental signature.
Combination tickets with Cry Innocent: The People Verses Bridget Bishop are available, and there is a Trolley shuttle that shuttles ticket-holders between Front Street at Old Town Hall and Pioneer Village.
This show will sell out, so buy tickets in advance!
