The Witch of Pungo

July 1 – July 30 | Friday through Sunday at 8:30pm and 9:30pm

Location: 26th Street at Atlantic Avenue

FREE and open to the public

In 1706 the Commonwealth of Virginia convicted the first and only woman in its history of the crime of witchcraft. Now, 300 years later, the story is re-told twice nightly in chilling fashion on the 26th Street Stage. In this half- hour mini-musical, the story of Grace Sherwood is resurrected with full cast, sets, lighting, and a haunting original score. You’ll discover the real story behind the witch hunt that mesmerized the early colonies in this remarkable re-enactment, from the accusations to the dramatic conclusion – her trial by water! You’ll discover that what happened in colonial America centuries ago was far scarier than witchcraft.
