Smith Opera House

No one is safe as a reign of terror rips through 1692 Salem. Led by Abigail Williams, a group of girls who claim to have seen the Devil hurl out charges of witchcraft, sending those who won’t confess to the noose. When the accusing finger points to his wife, John Proctor is forced to confront his past and determine his future.
Arthur Miller’s searing drama, inspired by the McCarthy era, comes to vivid new life in the National Players’ bare-knuckle staging. A piercing look at what can happen when truth is bent to political convenience, The Crucible is a powerful story for our time.
This performance of The Crucible is 90 minutes long and is followed by a post-show talkback session at 11:30 am.
Celebrating its 70th season, National Players is a unique ensemble bringing innovative theater to communities large and small across the United States. Founded in 1949, National Players stimulates youthful imagination and critical thinking by presenting classic plays in invigorating ways for modern audiences.
This show is part of the Smith Center for the Arts’ ArtSmart Educational Theatre series, with generous sponsorship by Lyons National Bank and The Delavan Foundation.
