A Fun Twist of History for Your Next Event

It’s the attention to detail that sets the History Makers apart. Each performer portrays a real person from America’s past. Some characters are famous, some never made the history books. But all of them helped shape our nation.  And our performers’ knowledge of history, their ability to stay in character while entertaining your guests and their accurate costumes can add an unexpected – and memorable – element to your event.
