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.

“Step Back In Time” is being staged at several venues this summer,  including Cold Springs and Glenwood Cemeteries. Many of the cast are seasoned stage professionals and others are brand new to the excitement. Our 2014 schedule continues with:

  • Friday, August 22 – 1 pm – Architectural Tour of Lockport’s Main St. – with guide Charlie Begley of “Step Back in Time Players” – meet at Erie Canal Discovery Center
  • Sunday, Sept. 7 – 1 pm – Cold Springs Cemetery

All tours are $10. Please call the History Center for information and reservations – 434-7433.
