FLC’s Falcon’s Eye Theatre stirs ‘The Crucible’

By
From page B2 | October 25, 2013 |

The Falcon’s Eye Theatre at Folsom Lake College announces its fall 2013 production of Arthur Miller’s devastating parable, “The Crucible.” This is the first production in the seventh full season from The Falcon’s Eye.

“The Crucible” takes place in the scorching context of the 17th-century Salem witch trials and unravels a tale of human struggles both internal and external.

The play is about a community galvanized by fear and suspicion, a wife betrayed by lust, an orphan girl blind with passion and obsessed with revenge, ruthless prosecutors, deluded holy men and covetous neighbors.

Arthur Miller’s script pulses with the destructiveness of socially sanctioned violence, the power of hysteria and rancor, the blindness of zealots and the heart of one tortured man trying to find his own goodness.

“The Crucible” is produced by The Falcon’s Eye and directed by Peter Mohrmann. The producing artistic director is David Harris, scenic designer and technical director is Ian Wallace, costume designer is Nancy Pipkin, lighting designer is Sam Coquerille and the sound designer and dramaturg is Cathy Hardin.

The featured cast includes: Alexandra Barthel, David Cameron, Cathy Hardin, Chelsea Kopp, Christine Lovette, Rachel O’Laughlin, Tom Rhatigan, Allen Schmeltz, Paul Scott, Michael Sicilia, Maggie Upton, David Williams and Tim Yancey.

This performance contains complex adult storytelling and is not intended for children. Parental guidance is suggested for those under 13. No one under 6 will be admitted.

“The Crucible” opens at the City Studio at the Harris Center for the Arts on the campus of Folsom Lake College, 10 College Parkway in Folsom, on Friday, Oct. 25 and will continue through Sunday, Nov. 10.

Performances are Friday and Saturday nights at 7:30 p.m. and Sunday afternoons at 2 p.m. Tickets are  $15 for general admission, $10 for students and seniors.

There are two extra performances, Thursday, Oct. 31, at 7:30 p.m. and Saturday, Nov. 9 at 2 p.m. Tickets for these two performances only are specially priced for students with any kind of valid student ID from any institution for $5. Regular ticket prices apply for non-student patrons on these dates.
