    Drama Events

    "The Crucible" Cheers to the cast and crew of "The Crucible" on their successful performances. The Thespians of GSA performed Arthur Miller's exciting, suspenseful drama based on the true story of the Salem Witch Trials in October.

         The "promenade" style performance, for which the audience moved through sets located in nature, took place behind GSA's Hinckley House dorm on Tenney Hill. Watching the play outdoors and moving from scene to scene both added a touch of realism to the play and lightened the mood, even though the topic of "The Crucible" is very serious. Congratulations to all on two wonderful performances. We look forward to seeing what you do next!

         Learn more about the director's long history with the play and local connections to it HERE.
