Students to perform 'Crucible'
The show will play at 7 p.m. Friday and Saturday and 2:30 p.m. Sunday. Tickets are $7 for adults and $5 for students.
“The Crucible” is set in Salem, Mass., in the late 17th century, when young girls accused a neighbor of practicing witchcraft. The ensuing hysteria led to the death of numerous other residents.
The playwright uses the Salem witch trials as a metaphor for other “witch hunts” in our history, such as the McCarthy hearings that tried to root out Communist sympathizers.
Teacher Bethany Mason is directing the drama.
