Community Players announces Summer 2013 show!
For the first time, a non-musical production will be featured, as CP presents Arthur Miller’s classic American drama The Crucible.
The story is set in the Puritan town of Salem, Massachusetts in 1692 . A group of young girls is caught dancing in the forest by Reverend Parris, who is shocked to see that his own daughter is a member of the group. Rumors about the occurrence flood the town and become accusations that drag many into trials on charges of practicing witchcraft.
Performance dates for The Crucible are July 26-28 and August 2-3 at the Richland Center High School Auditorium.
Auditions will be held on Friday and Saturday, May 31-June 1, at the Richland County Performing Arts Center (City Auditorium) in downtown Richland Center. Audition details will be announced as the dates get closer.
Donald C. Hart, a Community Players alumnus, is the director of The Crucible. Don appeared in CP’s productions of Peter Pan and Annie as well as several UW-Richland Theatre shows. He is graduating from UW-La Crosse with a Bachelor’s Degree in Theatre Arts. Don was the Assistant Director for UW-L’s presentation of These Shining Lives in December of 2012.
