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 now residing in the cemetery. The cast of characters includes such notables as: Lyman and Amy Spalding, Dr. Sarah Lamb Cushing, Jesse Hawley, DeWitt Clinton, Charles Upson, Dr. Josiah Skinner, Charlotte Cross, Raphael Beck, Isabella Sutherland, Eliza Mossell, Anna Merritt, Birdsall Holly, Washington and Mary Walbridge Hunt, William Rand Kenan, Hattie Moss and many others.
Many of the cast are seasoned stage professionals and others are brand new to the excitement. All do an amazing job of bringing these late friends to life once again!
“Step Back In Time” will be staged staged at several venues this summer, including Glenwood and Cold Springs Cemeteries. Please watch this web site, our Facebook, newsletter and local media for news of these upcoming appearances.
“Step Back In Time” cast members are also available to perform for your group or civic organization. For additional information, contact the History Center at (716)434-7433.
