The American Historical Theatre, Inc. is a charitable and educational not-for-profit organization designed to bring history alive for both children and adults.  Our primary objective is to bring live historical performance into schools, museums and historic sites.. Many of these needy institutions would like to host performances, but are unable to afford bringing the characters to their sites due to travel, housing expense, and professional artist fees.

Here is the opportunity for you to assist in this most important work. Join the Patriotís Wall of Pride.  Support an historical character. See our web site ( Go to the press package section and select the character you wish to support.  $250 per month assures that historical character can make one school appearance during each month.
