October 11                The Crucible

“It is rare for people to be asked the question which puts them squarely in front of themselves." The Crucible fictionalizes the accounts of the infamous witch trials of Salem, Massachusetts — an entire community ruled by fear, flinging false accusations that results in the imprisonment and execution of innocent citizens. This powerfully disturbing Tony Award-wining play offers many tragic, but valuable lessons on peer pressure, prejudice, revenge, honesty, integrity, and the finding of one's voice in the face of hypocrisy and injustice.

Friday, October 11 at 7:30pm; Saturday, October 12 at 7:30pm; Friday, October 18 at 7:30pm; Saturday, October 19 at 7:30pm; Sunday, October 20 at 5:30pm
