Upper School Students Perform The Crucible

Ninth and 10th grade thespians tackled Arthur Miller’s Tony Award-winning play, The Crucible, this spring in the Vincent Price Theatre. The Crucible is a fictionalized account of the Salem witch trials that took place in Massachusetts in the 17th century.

Patrick Huber, Upper School Drama Teacher and director of the play, said “Reading the play in 8th grade was a wonderful opportunity for these students to learn the history behind the 17th century events described in the show and the mid-20th century events that inspired Miller to write it. Staging it gave them insight into what the characters experienced and felt, and helped the students understand the true genius of Miller’s writing.”
