A Note from Artistic Director, Jeffery Kin:

“I like the idea of creating themes for my seasons. I feel it gives our theatre and its patrons and volunteers another way of grasping what we do here at The Players Centre.  This year’s theme is even more exciting, because it will give us the opportunity to show a production on our stage, and share what it takes to produce it behind the scenes. I invite people to look differently at this community theatre, and to become familiar with the volunteers and their many hours of toil that often go unnoticed.”


For all Broadway Series productions, please prepare:

  • A Short, One Minute Monologue
  • (For Musicals) A Short, One Minute Song
  • (For Musicals) You will be expected to attend the group dance audition.

In the insular, Puritan community of 1692 Salem, Massachusetts, a group of young girls are found dancing in the woods, and immediately fall ill. When no earthly cause can be determined, the citizens of Salem suspect that some more sinister force may be at hand. As long-held grudges turn to violent disputes, humiliating secrets are exposed and disseminated, and the line between truth and pretense becomes increasingly blurry, the citizens’ dogged determination to root out evil becomes more dangerous than the evil itself. When the burden of proof is invisible and the crime too terrible to name, everyone becomes a suspect and no one is safe. The Crucible, Arthur Miller’s remarkable 1963 play, remains as relevant as ever, and carries with it a stern warning: in every community torn by suspicion, the most dangerous threat may be the community itself.
