Conestoga High School's Stoga Theatre will present The Crucible, November 16-18, 2017. A Puritan colony in 1690s Salem Massachusetts bears witness to tragedy when young girls contrive stories of witchcraft against innocent townspeople. As the number of victims multiplies, dozens are tortured into confessing or hanged for their refusal. Hysteria and fear rule the day and no one can escape the devastating consequences. Arthur Miller's The Crucible, a dramatized story about the Salem witch trials, guides the audience to examine a situation where lies become truth and innocent people cannot defend themselves. Written as an allegory for the McCarthy hearings of the 1950s, the play contemplates moral issues and attitudes that transcend time. Evening performances of Stoga Theatre's production of The Crucible are at 7:00PM on November 16-18, and a matinee at 2:00PM on Saturday, November 18. Tickets are $12 for adults and $10 for students and seniors. For tickets and information, go to StogaTheatre's website, www.stogatheatre.com or call (610) 240-1022.
