Theater auditions: ‘The Crucible’ at Valencia

Here’s notice of an audition for The Crucible at Valencia Community College next week:

Valencia Character Company is proud to announce auditions for Arthur Miller’s terrifying tale of witchcraft and mass hysteria

The Crucible

A dark and disturbing look at the Salem witch trials of 1692, The Crucible reflects each and every “witch hunt” that preceded and followed it. The play explores a society whose very soul is on the line due to hideous accusations and mass hysteria, and makes us wonder: Could this happen/is this happening in our world today?

Miller’s work will be performed in February 2011 at the Valencia Community College East campus, production to be directed by John DiDonna and designed by Michael Shugg.  All roles are available and auditions are open to both students and community members (looking for a wide range of types and age ranges – color blind casting).
