“The Crucible”: Skyline High School.
Nov. 2-4. Anne-Marie Roberts directs Skyline students in Arthur Miller’s 1953 drama, set during the Salem witch trials, about a community engulfed by paranoia and mutual recrimination. Appearing at the height of the McCarthy era, the play was seen in its time as a thinly veiled indictment of senator Joseph McCarthy and his followers, but its enduring popularity suggests it touches on irrationalities endemic to American culture. Cast: Leah Harris, Andrew Ames, Tasfia Bari, Lizzie Ritter, Loralye Johnson, Olivia Moray, Jackson Sweeney, Joanna Vuylsteke, Jessica Parent, Mario Merola, Ida Mwai, Billy Reece, Mingquan Ma, Cecilia Lundburg, Jason Dean, Alex Kime, Jenna Stribley, Justise Ortiz, Alex Porter-Castro, Johanna Kiel, Seth Bear.
