Next Auditions will be in August, 2018, for The Crucible

The Stage Company will hold auditions for its first production of thirty-seventh season, The Crucible, by Arthur Miller, on Sunday, August 26th at 6:00 p.m. in the East Theater. Callbacks will be held Tuesday August 28th.

Arthur Miller’s classic play stands as a timeless cautionary tale about the dangers of irrational fear mongering, theocratic government, and the breakdown of community relations. This production of The Crucible dramatizes the tragic consequences when an imbalance of power across gender, race and social class is fueled by fears that tear apart a community.

We are looking to cast an ensemble of 15-17 actors, with particular emphasis on diversity in age and ethnicity, beyond what is specified in the original play. Anyone 16 and older is invited to audition. Auditions will be held Sunday, August 26 at 6:00 p.m. in the East Theater with callbacks on Tuesday, August 28 at 6:00 p.m. Auditions will feature readings from the play and callbacks will take a workshop format.

*The role of John Proctor will be played by Jeff McGoy.
