The Crucible

The Crucible

Fridays and Saturdays - August 11th ~ September 9th
Gates open at 6:30pm for picnics.
Show starts at 8:00pm


The Crucible, directed by Susan McCandless. Salem, Massachusetts, 1692: When the girls of this small, devout town, under the malign spell of their ringleader Abigail Williams, accuse countless decent people of witchcraft, fear, anger and injustice rip apart the village. Only gradually does it become clear that Abigail has her own motives for revenge. Arthur Miller’s explosive account of the famous Salem witch trials caused a sensation with its parallels to the Communist scares of the 1950s, and remains one of his most enduring classics. It has the intensity of a thriller, but is also a cautionary tale of extremism that can lead to dangerous mass hysteria. 

Main Street Theatre Works is donating 50% of the net proceeds from their September 1st performance of The Crucible to the Kennedy Mine Foundation (KMF), to help with repairs from the fire on their property August 14th.

Along with each ticket, you'll get a voucher good at the amphitheatre for a bottle of water or cup of coffee/tea, and you can use one of our chairs instead of bringing your own. The fundraisers include the performance, a dessert bar and coffee/tea.

Ticket Prices
Adults - $20.00
Seniors: $17.50
Students/Children 18 & under - $12.00
