‘The Crucible’ VCE Theatre Studies Performance

Tickets on Sale Monday 25th June

Collingwood College and Fitzroy High School’s Year 12 Theatre Studies class presents  an adaption of Arthur Miller’s “The Crucible”  from July 26th – 28th in the Collingwood College Theatre.

The performance season consists of three evening performances and one matinee;

  • Thursday 26th July – 7pm
  • Friday 27th July – 7pm
  • Saturday 28th July – 2pm Matinee
  • Saturday 28th July – 7pm 

Miller’s timeless parable attacks the evils of mindless persecution and the terrifying power of false accusations. At its heart lies one man’s fight to retain his identity. Inspired by the 1692 witch trials in Salem, Massachusetts  ‘The Crucible’ remains a powerfully relevant commentary on the struggle of individual conscience in a lethal climate of fear and intolerance.

The Theatre Studies students have chosen to employ the theatrical styles of Expressionism and Theatre of Cruelty in order to create a dark and political interpretation of Miller’s timeless tale. The entire performance is created and directed by the students in the Year 12 Theatre Studies class. VCE Theatre Studies requires students to focus on two areas of stagecraft including; writing, directing, lighting, acting, publicity, sound, set design, and costume.

DUE TO THE THEMES AND CONTENT EXPLORED IN THE PLAY THERE IS A STRICT MA 15+ RECOMMENDATION
