 American Historical Theatre

The American Historical Theatre (AHT) is a 501(c)(3) organization. Our Actor/Historians educate, entertain and inspire through Living History. For more than 25 years, our first person interpreters have encouraged audience members to encounter and interact with history, developing empathy and underscoring the role of choice.

Recent AHT performances and presentations include The Women of President Washington’s Household, commissioned by Independence National Historical Parks for the re-dedication of the Deshler-Morris House; My Dear Mrs. Lincoln, for the Lincoln 200 celebration, performed outdoors at Independence Mall; The Handoff, in honor of President Obama’s inauguration, performed in Congress Hall; On Fire For Liberty, commissioned by the White House, performed in the East Room; and the UNESCO panel featuring Abraham Lincoln, presented in Paris.

AHT has a proud tradition of civic engagement that includes Mad Anthony Wayne Days in Wayne, PA; and Trenton’s annual Patriots Week events. AHT is the natural choice for launching new concepts and for putting a face to initiatives that seek public awareness and understanding.
