Actor and storyteller Tom Sternberg (René Edouard Philip Levesque) is newly returned to the North Shore after a six year exile down south. To this Lovecraftian coast there could be no warmer welcome than working with Intramersive, of whom he's long been a fan and with whom he's honored to create. His other work includes leading interpretive tours at the Crane Estate in Ipswich and, recently, helping to organize the Newburyport Film Festival. Deep thanks to his fellow cast members and to the Intramersive production team for their dedication to bringing history alive.

Anita has also played pirate queen Grace O’Malley in Blackthorn Winter and Hawthorne Moon, grieving mom Madge Chadwicke in the first installment of Daemonologie, and the countermagic-casting laundress Goody Frye in Daemonologie: Blood and Bone.
