witch dungeon museum photoView a reenactment of the trial of accused witch Elizabeth Proctor, based upon the original court transcript from 1692.

The show begins with several minutes of preparatory narration, piped into a 'courtroom' filled with tourists. Stage curtains slowly pull back to reveal a shadowy court bench and jury box, containing roughly a dozen trial participants.

The proceedings get underway quickly, but it soon becomes apparent to the more attentive audience members that only two of the performers are actually alive. The rest are thinly-disguised dummies that fail to move an inch or utter a syllable during the entire show.

After the trial, you'll be led on a tour through the dungeon where the accused were held to complete the witching experience.
