POWELL, Wyo. - Northwest College’s Fred Ebert announced today that the script for the Tuesday, Sept. 20, community theater auditions has been changed to Arthur Miller’s classic “The Crucible.”
“Due to unforeseen circumstances, we’re forced to change our choice of script,” Ebert said. “Those who were hoping to get a part in the comedic farce will now get the chance to audition for a play that speaks to an even broader audience in today’s world.”
The plot of “The Crucible” focuses on the witch trials of Salem, but was actually written as a social commentary about the McArthur-era hearings on communism and the witch hunt that ensued.
“If you want to be involved in a production that moves a community,” Ebert said, “this is the play to audition for.”
Open auditions will held from 7-9 p.m. at the Nelson Performing Arts Center Auditorium in Powell. Callbacks will be held the following evening, Wednesday, Sept. 21.
Rehearsals run from 6:30-9 p.m. Mondays, Tuesdays and Thursdays. “The Crucible” will be staged Dec. 9 and 10.
