Press release from Red Bank Regional High School
Beginning Thursday, December 1, the Theatre Company at Red Bank Regional High School will present Arthur Miller’s play The Crucible as its fall dramatic production.
Set during the time of the infamous Salem Witch Trials of the Massachusetts Bay Colony — and first brought to Broadway in 1953 — the Tony winning drama by the author of Death of a Salesman traced some stark parallels to the anti-Communist “witch trials” of postwar America, and is regarded as a classic that continues to present a bold message whenever and wherever fear runs rampant, neighbor is pitted against neighbor, and the nature of truth itself is called into question.
Performances will take place inside the RBR auditorium at 7 p.m. on Thursday, Friday and Saturday, December 1, 2 and 3 at 7 p.m. Tickets are $10 for adults ($5 for students 18 and younger, and senior citizens 62 and older) with RBR students and staff admitted free of charge.
