Daniel deStephano, Director of the Nahant Public Library commented: " Delvena Theater has given two wonderful performances at the Nahant Public Library. Each performance was well-attended and well-received. Library patrons have already asked when the Delvena Theater will return--and we absolutely will have them back again!"
He also wrote 'Delvena's production of The Trial of Susannah Martin and Scary Stories of the Salem Witch Trials presents two well-educated actors whose performances seize the audience in the grip of attitudes and beliefs not likely to be shared in the modern world. The actors transport the audience, through theatrical interaction, into the past of 400 years ago with great conviction. One is sorry when the performance is ended, but is equally relieved to return, somewhat unsettled to the modern world. "
Letter to the Editor Nahant Newspaper: I wish to thank the Nahant Public Library, the Nahant Cultural Council and Daniel deStephano for sponsoring the highly entertaining and inspirational two member cast of Lynne Moulton and Jape Payette in the Trial of Susannah Martn and Scary Stories of the Salem Witch Trials. Congratulations to the gifted performers. The capacity audience received them well.
The Nahant Public Library has once again proven itself to be THE crown jewel of the Town of Nahant. Ginny McCoy, Nahant.
Susannah Martin is "one of the best presentations I've ever attended. It was hands-on, extremely well done and informative, and should not be missed." Peter MacNeil, Pope John XXIII High School.
"The Delvena Theatre Group's production of the Salem Witch Trials was wonderful. They helped transport the entire eleventh grade class back to 1692 Salem. They invited several students to participate in the witch trial. They answered numerous questions and provided extremely Knowledgeable responses to all students. Students and teachers are still talking about the performance. We want them back every year!" Joan Santamaria (English Teacher) and Lindsey Ginter(Student Teacher)
