Photo Flash: First Look at Bay Street Theatre's THE CRUCIBLE for Literature Live!

Bay Street Theatre's Literature Live! presentation of THE CRUCIBLE, by Arthur Miller, will be presented live on stage in a professional production beginning this Friday, November 9 thru Saturday of Thanksgiving weekend, November 24. The play is directed by Murphy Davis, Artistic Director of Bay Street Theatre. Get a first look at the production in the photos below!

The Crucible is presented as part of Bay Street Theatre's Literature Live! educational program, which presents a piece of literature selected from the core curriculum and brings it to life on stage for schools from as far away as Central Islip.

In 1952, Arthur Miller wrote THE CRUCIBLE, a play about the Salem witch trials that took place in the Province of Massachusetts Bay between 1692-1693. The play was written as an allegory of McCarthyism, when the U.S. government blacklisted accused communists. It was first performed at the Martin Beck Theater on Broadway in 1953, and went on to win the Tony for "Best Play" that year.

The cast includes Ken Forman (Reverend Samual Parris), Joanna Howard (Abigail Williams), Kate Mueth (Mrs. Ann Putnam), Al Bundonis (Thomas Putnam) Mackenzie Engeldrum (Mercy Lewis), Kate O'Phalen (Mary Warren), Rob DiSario (John Proctor), Lisa Cory (Rebecca Nurse), Peter Connolly (Reverend John Hale), Chloe Dirksen (Elizabeth Proctor) and Joel Leffert (Deputy Governor Danforth).

Literature Live! is a BOCES-approved Arts-in-Education program. Plays chosen are from standards-based literature and are supported with teacher-developed lesson plans and reference materials. All performances are 90 minutes and weekday shows are followed by a question and answer session.

Bay Street Theatre is a not-for-profit regional theater presenting new, classic and contemporary works, with a commitment to challenging and entertaining our diverse community. This commitment extends to innovative educational programs that highlight the power of live theater. It is our mission to be an artistic haven for an extended family of artists and audience, while continuing to provide a gathering place to share in the unique collective theatrical experience.
