Theater

Students to perform in ‘The Crucible’ starting Friday


Arthur Miller’s 1953 Tony Award-winning play “The Crucible” opens Friday in the Cynthia Woods Mitchell Center.

Artistic Director of the Peterborough Players, Gus Kaikkonen, is directing the production, which is set in 17th century Salem, Mass., during the Salem witch trials and commonly interpreted as an allegory for Senator Joseph McCarthy’s anti-communism movement in the 1950s.

Guest artist Kaikkonen visited UH last year as well, when he directed John McClure’s Western version of John O’Keef’s English comedy “Wild Oats,” in March.

Tickets are $20 to the general public, $15 for UH faculty, staff or alumni, and $10 for seniors and students. They can be purchased online at www.theatredance.uh.edu or by calling 713-743-2929.
