Open auditions for Firelands College Theatre’s production of Arthur’s Miller’s award-winning drama,
— 9-11:30 a.m. Saturday
— 6-9 p.m. Monday
— 5-8 p.m. Tuesday
Written in 1953, Miller’s powerful play about the Puritan purge of witchcraft in old Salem mirrored the anti-communist hysteria inspired by Senator Joseph McCarthy’s ‘witch-hunts’ in the United Sates. “The Crucible” has become a classic of the American Theatre, and continues to speak to contemporary social, religious, and political concerns.
Male and female actors of high school age and above are needed to fill the 20 roles available.
Several female roles may be filled by 10 to 15-year olds. Prepared material is not required for the audition, but some familiarity with the play would be helpful. P
Production dates will be November 4-7, with most rehearsals scheduled for evening hours, Monday through Friday.
Dr. Jann Graham Glann, Assistant Professor of Humanities at BGSU Firelands, will serve as Director. Associate Professor Dr. Frank Glann is set designer.
