In the Puritan community of Salem, Massachusetts, a group of adolescent girls falls ill. The lack of any rational cause prompts Salem’s citizens to begin assigning blame to supernatural forces. Fear mounts, and hysteria ensues. Accusations of witchcraft become the remedy for private insecurities, deeply held grudges, and unfettered greed.

The ugly underbelly of society erupts, one that validates agreement and cancels dissent. Still relevant, Arthur Miller’s 1963 play carries a contemporary caution: the most dangerous threat to any community may be the community itself.

Suggested for ages 14+

THE CRUCIBLE is presented by special arrangements with Broadway Licensing, LLC, servicing the Dramatists Play Service collection. (

You can help us reach our goal by making a gift for individual or multiple seats in one or both theatres. Or you can make a contribution of any size to support this important cause.
