Bringing history to life

Engaging History Productions (EHP) is a coalition of historians, costumers, authors, playwrights, set designers and actors. Our mission is to help museums, non-profit foundations, schools, churches and other history-focused groups stage events, exhibits, presentations and historical theatre that brings history to life.

Our committed team can organize, market and conduct events tailored to the needs of your organization. Because we know budgets are tight, Engaging History Productions does not charge a fee for actors or use of costumes and sets. We do negotiate reimbursement of incidental expenses but we will let you know what they will be before we get started. We also rely on donations to continue to develop our warehouse of costumes and props.

The four principal partners of EHP have been producing historical events for many years. We have developed a large pool of talented people who are always eager to support a project like yours. When you engage us, you will meet a seasoned team of experts who are focused on historical accuracy and creative ideas that will make your event a success. With more than 100 years experience between the four principal partners in EHP, we’re getting to be pretty good at what we do.

Engaging History Productions is based in central Virginia. We do our work primarily in the counties surrounding Richmond. We would be happy to discuss your upcoming event and see where and how we can help you make it engaging.

Email us.  Tell us about who you are, your project and when it is planned.  We’ll get back to you within 24 hours (usually much faster).
