Mission students tackle tale of The Crucible

The Crucible, set during the Salem witch trials, grapples with the issues of systemic hypocrisy, false accusation and more.

Mission Senior Secondary Theatre’s fall production of Arthur Miller’s allegorical play The Crucible hits the stage in the first week of December for a three-night run – Dec. 3-5.

All shows take place at 7 p.m. in the school’s studio theatre at the northwest end of the school. Doors open at 6:30 p.m. and tickets sell for $5.

The Crucible, set during the Salem witch trials in Massachusetts, grapples with the issues of systemic hypocrisy, false accusation, and the sublimation of minorities within society.

This fiery production promises to thrill and give audiences pause “to consider the impact our actions have on the lives of others.”
