Cloverdale Playhouse's 2017 production of
Arthur Miller's THE CRUCIBLE
will be held February 26 and 27th at 6:30pm
Forget the image of THE CRUCIBLE set in the late 1600’s with buckled shoes and big, white collars! The Playhouse’s production, directed by Sarah Adkins, will bring new life to this American classic.
Inspired by the events of the era of McCarthyism in the 1950’s in America, Arthur Miller explores mass political and cultural hysteria through the avenue of the Salem Witch Trials. The plot focuses on a young farmer, his wife, and a malicious serving-girl who drives their entire town into turmoil. Fear, a literal witch-hunt, and a mob mentality’s search for a scapegoat make for quite a timely story.
Performances will be April 27 through May 7, 2017.
Sign In 6:30 to 7pm. Auditions will begin at 7pm.
Please prepare a monologue no longer than 2 minutes,
ideally with "elevated language" - anything from Sophocles to Shakespeare to Stoppard.
