"The Crucible" Captivates Audiences

Upper School students moved audiences with a compelling modern adaptation of Arthur Miller’s classic play The Crucible, on Feb. 6-9.

Twenty-seven students took the stage in our Black Box Theatre for four sold-out performances. The play was adapted and co-directed by theatre faculty Solomon Davis and Ellen Graham. The show explored racism, sexism, the #metoo movement, class struggles, neighbors distrusting neighbors, and facts being accepted as facts because a person in power says so.

Local set designer Liam Cole created the backdrop, with costumes designed by Heidi Heimarck, and lights by Northwest stagecraft teacher Zach Humes.
