The Crucible at NCTC, January 18-20, 2013

The Newington Children’s Theatre Company is proud to present The Crucible, written by Arthur Miller, January 18-20, 2013. The stellar cast of teens bring this classic off the page to the NCTC stage for one weekend only.

Winner of the Tony Award for Best Play, The Crucible is an ageless tale of fear, greed and power written by one of the greatest American playwrights of all time. When teenage girls are discovered trying to conjure spirits, the 17th century town of Salem explodes with accusations of witchcraft. The vicious trials that follow expose a community paralyzed by terror, religious extremism and greed, and a marriage forever changed.

Performances are Friday and Saturday at 7:00pm and Saturday and Sunday at 2:00pm. Tickets are $12 for adults ($15 at the door) and $10 for seniors, students and children ($12 at the door). The Crucible is appropriate for children, ages 12 and up. Performances will take place at the NCTC Performing Arts Theatre located at 743 North Mountain Road in Newington. For tickets or more information, please call 860.666.NCTC.
