New Director Team for “Cry Innocent”

History Alive!, the paid acting branch of the Gordon College Institute for Public History, is delighted to announce the hiring of director team Anne Colpitts and Jill Rogati to lead the upcoming season’s cast of Cry Innocent: the People Versus Bridget Bishop.

Since 1992 Cry Innocent has been performing to approximately 20,000 visitors to Salem, providing students and alumni with valuable experience in audience-interactive historical performance. Both Rogati ’07 and Colpitts ’07 have performed in Cry Innocent for multiple seasons as well as in other History Alive! projects at Pioneer Village, the National Park Service, onboard the Kalmar Nyckel, and on national television.


Colpitts received the 2006 Excellence in Theatre Arts Performance Award from Gordon College, and performs regularly in the region.
Rogati recently completed her postgraduate training at the London International School of the Performing Arts and is adjunct faculty at Gordon College. She has performed regionally and at the Fringe Festival in Edinburgh, Scotland.

The pair will hold auditions on Saturday, April 9, at Old Town Hall, Salem.
