Who We Are

The Bachmann Players is a group of locally based amateur historians and actors. Mining the area's rich colonial history, we use letters, diaries, and other source materials to recreate the people and events of the 1700's so that they can be experienced by a modern audience.

The Players are under the artistic guidance of Christopher Black, a veteran stage actor who spent over a decade as a member of the former Jean Cocteau Classical Repertory in New York. 


The essence of history in Easton and the surrounding areas begins with the Leni-Lanape People. They were recognized as “The Grandfathers” by other tribes.

We are fortunate that they have a cultural center here on the Northampton Street level of the Bachmann, which is open to the public most Saturdays from 11:00-3:00.
