This was an excellent reenactment of part of the trials, it was informative and interesting to hear actual testimony. I would definitely recommend this show to anyone visiting Salem for the first time.

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

Great reenactment. The actors did a great job at being in the moment, play different roles, and interact with the audience. The audience serve as part of the trial and can ask questions to either the defendant, the accusers, or the judge. Highly recommend it.

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.
