History Comes Alive as Live History Pays a Visit to Haliburton, Ontario! Live History (www.livehistoryshows.com) is a theatre company that specializes in bringing your local history to life. We are presenting two shows in Haliburton.
Robin's Redemption: Attention, local community members! A loyal, wealthy member of the community has passed away. They promised to leave most of their fortune to a good cause, but in their own mysterious way. As one of their closest friends, you have been invited to attend the funeral reception. The recently deceased has sent each of you odd clues, letters and objects, and it is up to you to solve the puzzle. However, the funeral reception is soon interrupted by Robin, who used to frequent the streets of this town, begging for change or food. Robin was often avoided by the members of the community, and eventually faded from the town's memory. The recently deceased was the only person who understood Robin's unique personality and views on the world. But now, you will join forces in order to find a hidden treasure, and set Robin free.
Mary's Odyssey: Attention Lords and Ladies! The Lord of this Manor wishes to cordially invite you to help solve a long standing mystery, stepping back in time to experience history as it unfolds before your very eyes! Come join the young maid, Mary as she takes you on a tour of the historic house. Using Homer's The Odyssey as the cipher, we present you a unique experience, as the audience assists Mary in solving a long-hidden mystery, leading to a treasure. The show is a journey back to a time when the house was alive with the past. The audience will experience much about love, loss and honor while being guided through by the one set of eyes that has seen all in this home.

Video - Toxic Trespass
Location: Your Home
Raising awareness of the connection between your children�s health and our environment. Book a casual in home video showing for your friends. This is not a sales event. As a courtesy to attendees this is a no scent event (includes perfumes, personal care and laundry scents). In Toxic Trespass, intrepid filmmaker Barri Cohen launches an investigation into the effects of the chemical soup around us. She starts with her 10-year-old daughter, whose blood carries carcinogens like benzene and the long-banned DDT. Then, Cohen heads out to Windsor and Sarnia: Canadian toxic hotspots, with startling clusters of deadly diseases. The filmmaker journeys into toxic nightmares all too common in industrialized countries. She meets passionate activists working for positive change, along with doctors and scientists who see evidence of links between environmental pollution and health problems. And she learns how quickly barriers can go up sometimes, when authorities are questioned about the connection between toxins and serious health problems. This film is essential viewing for anyone concerned about the effects of pollutants on our � and our children�s � very DNA.
