The Barn Players have announced the cast and creative team for their summer production of Arthur Miller’s THE CRUCIBLE.
Directed by Barn Players veteran David Martin, the production features Andy Penn, Jessica Franz, Lauren Hambleton, Phil Howard, Camille Breckenridge, Richard Burt, Elise Campagna, Teddi Castillo, Victor Castillo, Charles Christesson, Un Joo Christopher, Emma Cook, Lauren Crane, Valerie Dykes, Maura Graham, Barbara Handy, Dan Heinz, David Innis, Sarah Jeter, Michael Juncker, Sean Leistico, Zoe London, and Scott Shaw.
The production team includes D.K. Evenson (stage manager), Steven Ansel (assistant director and set design), Chuck Cline (lighting design), Jennifer Knecht (costume design), Valerie Martin (props design).
“We view this story as timeless,” says Martin. “While the actual events took place in the late 1600’s and the play was written with the shadow of 1950‘s McCarthyism over it, you don’t have to look hard to find persecution, politically motivated accusations, and public character assassination in our world. Our hope is that this show serves as a reminder of the consequences of such actions, while also taking audiences on a voyeuristic ride through one of our country’s most historic black marks.”
THE CRUCIBLE runs July 14th through Sunday, July 30th, 2017. Friday and Saturday evenings at 7:30pm, Sunday matinees at 2:00pm. Industry Night: Monday, July 24th, 7:30pm. The Barn Players, 6219 Martway, Mission, KS 66202.
