Darlington High School to present The Crucible
SW crucible
From L-R: Jason Singer (Judge Danforth), Cole McDonald (Reverend Hale), Meghan Vieth (Elizabeth Proctor), Sam Cohen (John Proctor), Darby Fitzsimons (Abigail Williams), Payton Steiner (Reverend Paris).

The Darlington High School theatre department is busy working the final bells and whistles into this year’s production of Arthur Miller’s The Crucible.  This thought-provoking production takes place in the midst of the infamous Salem Witch Trials of the 1600’s. 

In a society built upon religion, the price of disgraceful actions a group of girls commits is paid with the lives of the innocent, and a seemingly harmless affair becomes lethal for the unfaithful. 

Witness these complex characters as they unravel the sensational story and web of lies, shame, and motivation behind the Salem Witch Trials. 

Senior cast members in this unforgettable play are Darby Fitzsimons as Abigail Williams, Meghan Vieth as Elizabeth Proctor, Kyrin Halvorson and Shannon McDaniel as Mr. and Mrs. Putnam, Jordan Johnson as Judge Hathorne, Abbey Carlson as Tituba, Shae Johnson as Mercy Lewis, Steven Cotter as Francis Nurse, and Payton Steiner as Reverend Parris.

Other important roles include John Proctor portrayed by Sam Cohen, Judge Danforth played by Jason Singer, Mary Warren portrayed by Meghan Weber, and Reverend Hale brought to life by Cole McDonald.

This dramatic production will be performed by the stellar Darlington High School theatre department on March 28 and 29 at 7:30 p.m. and on March 30 at 1:30 p.m. 

Tickets for The Crucible can be purchased in advance for $6 or at the door for $8.  Ticket information can be obtained by calling 776-4001.  All performances will be held in the Darlington High School auditorium.
