The Crucible

by Lorie Lewis Ham

Last weekend was a weekend of contrasts for me-I saw the farcical comedy Noises Off in Reedley, and the very dark and serious play, The Crucible, in Visalia at the College of the Sequoias.

The Crucible On Stage in Selma

IN THE October 22 ISSUE

FROM THE 2014 Articles,
andTerrance V. Mc Arthur,

by Terrance Mc Arthur

A crucible is a container for melting and mixing metals. The Crucible is a play by Arthur Miller about the Salem Witch Trials, taking characters and putting them through heat and pressure. Selma Underground Productions have brought this drama to the Selma Arts Center Stage (1935 High Street) through October 25.

As the leaves become a swirl of dappled gold and fiery red, and as the temperature (eventually) drops, Selma’s Raisin Cain Players welcome October with a tale of the Salem Witch Trials, the Selma Underground Production of Arthur Miller’s The Crucible.


by Lorie Lewis Ham

While magic and witches have gained a lot of popularity in TV, movies and books over the last 20 years, especially since Harry Potter hit the scene, the story of the Salem Witch Trials has been around since the 1600’s and is something most people are familiar with. This story is brought to life in Good Company Players’ production ofThe Crucible now on stage at Second Space in Fresno.
