The Kilgore College Theatre Department will present Arthur Miller's Tony award-winning play, “The Crucible,” beginning Oct. 12 in Van Cliburn Auditorium on the Kilgore campus.


The play is set for 7:30 p.m. Thursday through Saturday, Oct. 12-14, with a matinee performance 2:30 p.m. Sunday, Oct. 15.


There are also two special morning performances scheduled for area schools and community organizations set for 10:30 a.m. Oct. 12 and 13 which will feature an educational presentation and discussion with the play’s cast and crew after the show.


General admission tickets are $10 for adults, $7 for students and $5 for KC students with a student ID.


Discounted ticket pricing is available for groups of 10 or more.


The play chronicles events surrounding the Salem Witch Trials and the paranoia and deceit that gripped many Puritan towns of New England during the late seventeenth century.


Inspired by the McCarthy hearings of the 1950s when the U.S. government blacklisted accused communists, Miller's play reveals how accusations of witchcraft led to one town's undoing.


The play is appropriate for all ages but children under the age of 7 will not be admitted.  Late arrivals will also not be admitted.


The box office will open one hour prior to each performance.


Tickets can be purchased online at www.kilgore.edu/drama or by phone at 903-983-8126.


For more information e-mail the KC Theatre Box Office at boxoffice@kilgore.edu.


The play is produced by special arrangement with Dramatists Play Service, Inc.


About the play:The story focuses upon a young farmer, his wife and a young servant-girl who maliciously causes the wife's arrest for witchcraft. The farmer brings the girl to court to admit the lie—and it is here that the monstrous course of bigotry and deceit is terrifyingly depicted. The farmer, instead of saving his wife, finds himself also accused of witchcraft and ultimately condemned with a host of others.
