Audition Annoucement - The Crucible


Auditions for the Firehouse Theater's production of The Crucible, written by Arthur Miller and directed by Peter J. Hughes.
An American Theatre masterpiece, Arthur Miller's "The Crucible", is a chilling psychological exploration of the disturbing effects of mob mentality during intellectually unstable and spiritually confronting times. Inspired by the McCarthy Committee on Un-American Activities "witch hunt" trials of the early 1950's, and set during the Salem witch hunts of the 1600s, The Crucible unleashes the shadow side of the human experience when fear and attack become the driving forces behind defending our faith and securing our position in society.
