Step Back In Time Players – Living History
Visitors from a bygone era are “dying” to meet you in a series of new dramatic presentation sponsored by Niagara County History Center. The performances, aptly entitled, “Step Back In Time,” offer the audience a chance to “meet” and interact with some of Lockport’s most well known citizens. The cast of characters includes such notables as: Lyman and Amy Spalding, Dr. Sarah Lamb Cushing, Jesse Hawley, DeWitt Clinton, Kate Chase Seymour, Dr. Josiah Skinner, Richard Crowley, Raphael Beck, Isabella Sutherland, Eliza Mossell, Eli Lewis, Washington and Mary Walbridge Hunt, William Rand Kenan, Hattie Moss, Rev. William Wisner, and many others.
Many of the cast are seasoned stage professionals and others are brand new to the excitement.
