From snitch to witch, here comes The Crucible

Witch hunts, infidelity and hanging — oh my. All of these topics and more are included in Westminster College of the Arts’ most recent production, The Crucible, based on Arthur Miller’s controversial play of the same name, which won the 1953 Tony Award for “Best Play.” The setting is Salem, Mass. in the late 1600s during the infamous witch trials and explores how narrow-mindedness can lead to a deeply divided community.

The play will be shown on Friday, Nov. 9 at 7:30 p.m., Saturday, Nov. 10  at 2 p.m. and 7:30 p.m. and Sunday, Nov. 11 at 2 p.m. and 7:30 p.m. in the Bart Luedeke Center. Tickets are $20 for adults and $10 for seniors and students.
