Saturday, June 3, 10:00 am, 1:00 pm, 4:00 pm, and 7:00 pm WHS presents Live History: The Interview

From their website: Live History is a theatre company that specializes in bringing your local history to life. Our shows take audiences on an adventure through time. Audiences will experience a full tour of the location while interacting with the characters, and assisting them in solving an urgent issue that can only be resolved with the audiences’ help.

WHS’ Educator Gillie Johnson, Research Librarian Martha Smart, and long-time society member and Connecticut State Prison authority Frank Winiarski worked directly with Live History, furnishing them with the historical data they needed (and that only Wethersfield Historical Society has) to tailor their scripts to our venues.

Wethersfield Historical Society and Live History bring the Great Depression to life in The Interview, coming to the Hurlbut-Dunham House (212 Main Street) on Saturday June 3. In this 60-90-minute interactive theatrical performance, you will step back in time and meet costumed actors playing real people from Wethersfield’s past for an interview unlike any other. Do you have what it takes to pass this interview?

The Interview brings together Escape Room style puzzles, drama, and humor to bring to life the stories of those who lived in, worked in, and frequented the Hurlbut-Dunham House. Tickets are $30 for the general public and $25 for Wethersfield Historical Society members. Because tours are limited to 16 people , advanced ticket purchases are highly recommended. Tickets are available for cash or check purchase at the society’s offices at the Old Academy (150 Main Street, Wethersfield), Tuesday through Friday 10:00 am to 4:00 pm, or online through EventBrite HERE. Online purchasers will be charged an additional convenience fee.
