In September, the show plays on Saturdays and Sundays only, at 2:00. (excepting specially arranged shows for private groups.)

The 2017 October season runs seven days a week, October 1–31st, with an 11:30, and 2:30 trial most days.  Many days have additional show times, which vary by day. Ten minutes before each performance, participate as Bridget Bishop is arrested in the street on charges of witchcraft.

-We recommend that you purchase admission before Bridget Bishop’s arrest to avoid a sudden line. This enables you to follow Bridget all the way into the theatre without needing to stop at the box office.
-Online ticket buyers, please check to the box office cart at least twenty minutes ahead of time to exchange online tickets for 17th c. currency. This will help get you into your seat faster, as well as update you of any changes to the arrest location.
-In October plan for plenty of time to look for parking (or better yet, take the train, bus or ferry).
-Based on what’s happening on the street (construction, street fairs, etc.) the arrest location may change. Ask at the box office where the arrest location for the day is.
