Truro High presents ‘The Crucible’
Tickets are now on sale for our atmospheric production of Arthur Miller’s seminal classic The Crucible, which will be performed at 7.30pm on 2, 3 & 4 March 2017.
Written during the McCarthy Trials and set against the backdrop of the Salem Witch trials, The Crucible is a timely lesson in the dangers of insular societies and religious persecution.
When the girls of a small Salem town are found dancing in the woods, several succumb to a mysterious illness and the sinister witch-finder Judge Danforth is called to investigate. As neighbour turns against neighbour and secrets are revealed, the girls form an unholy union that will shatter Salem’s uneasy peace.
Girls from the age of ten to eighteen are busy rehearsing whilst, backstage, pupils are hard at work designing and making impressive set pieces to bring this arresting tale of mass hysteria to life. From intricate dance ensembles to austere Pilgrim dresses our A level designers have also been creating one-of-a-kind costumes for the cast.
Tickets are available from main school reception and cost £7 or £5 for children. Reserve yours now by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
Please be aware that this play contains adult themes and some strong language.
Recent school productions have included Into the Woods, The Importance of Being Earnest, The Wizard of Oz, A Midsummer Night’s Dream, & Oliver.
