While characters can be entertaining and people in costume can draw big crowds, are we sure our historical impressions are meeting mission objectives and truly engaging the audience? How many guests to your sites walk away confused as to why the person in costume talked them in the past and sometimes in the present, or even the future? Do the characters at your site improve and enhance the visitor experience or do they just make for good photo ops? During this 90-minute webinar join in on the discussion of the importance for defining clear mission objectives for each character portrayal and costumed interpreter at your site or use in Living History, Historical, or Cultural programming.
