Making Plans For Your Fall Visit?
Here is something you will not want to miss when you come to visit Salem this Fall -- Salem Theatre Company is located just a few blocks walk from the Hawthorne Hotel, and it is absolutely the most comfortable live theater experience ever. Only two rows of very comfy chairs make every seat a virtual front row seat.
This intimate theater produces works with extraordinary professionalism and polish! You will not be disappointed, and will actually walk away amazed that such high-caliber entertainment is available for such a reasonable ticket price.
I hope to see you there.
SALEM THEATRE COMPANY- THE WITCHING HOUR BEGINS WITH ARTHUR MILLER’S THE CRUCIBLE
“While The Crucible depicts events in this very community over 300 years ago, what speaks to me now is its indictment of extreme theocracy – a force that runs rampant in our world today," says Director John Fogle, who also staged STC productions of the play in 2003 and 2007. "The play charts a course from the unthinkable to the inevitable with chilling clarity and power. It moves with the force of a tsunami.”
The Crucible’s 20-member ensemble is led by Dave Rich, Linda Goetz, and Julia Short as John Proctor, Elizabeth Proctor and Abigail Williams respectively.
Mr. Fogle continues, “Our patrons will also enjoy a re-imagined use of our space for The Crucible, with the action set within a forest of birch trees,” continued Fogle. “In fact, the forest, where the Puritans believed The Devil lurked, will become a virtual character in our production. It will bring a totally new look to the STC Theater.”
The Crucible will play from September 26 through October 19, Thursdays through Saturdays at 7:30 p.m. and Sundays at 5:00 p.m. Tickets are $25 for Adults, $20 for Seniors and $10 for Students and are available online at www.salemtheatre.com or by calling Ovation Tix at 866-811-4111. Salem Theatre Company performs at the STC Theatre,
Lafayette Street in Salem.
