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

 Performances are set for 7:30 p.m. Oct. 12-14, with a matinee at 2:30 p.m. Oct. 15.

 Special performances for schools and community organizations are set for 10:30 a.m. Oct. 12 and 13. These will feature an educational presentation and discussion with the play’s cast and crew.

 General admission tickets are $10 for adults, $7 for students and $5 for KC students. 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.

 Children under the age of 7 will not be admitted.  

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

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