TWC Theatre Department presents The Crucible by Arthur Miller
The Tennessee Wesleyan College Theatre Department will present their spring production, the classic American drama “The Crucible” by Arthur Miller. Running from March 27 through 29 and April 3 through 5, “The Crucible” will be performed in TWC’s Townsend Auditorium at 7 p.m. each evening with an afternoon show on March 30 at 3 p.m. The performance will last approximately 2 hours, 45 Minutes, including one intermission.
Tickets will be available at the door for cash only and are $8 for adults and $5 for students from all other schools. Admission will be free for TWC students, faculty, and staff with school identification.
A two-act play, “The Crucible” is a play about a town ripped apart by fear and mistrust. In 1692 Salem, Mass., accusations of witchcraft abound, pitting neighbor against neighbor in a struggle for their lives. The story centers on John and Elizabeth Proctor, a couple wrestling with demons of their own, and their former maid, the vengeful Abigail Williams. Led by Abigail, the local girls begin to cry out against others in the town, but are the girls bewitched, or are there more earthly motives to their actions?
Directed by Dr. C. Austin Hill, TWC assistant professor of theatre, the all-student cast includes Merrick Gray, Lyndsi Tallman, Nicole Avans, John Smith III, Angel Lamb, Michael Granier, Stephanie Jacobs, Koltin Thompson, Tyler Peaden, Julia Fioravanti, Edith Barajas, Katie Pyle, Aislin Anderson, Andrew Blake Rowe, Christopher Livingston, CJ Garrett, Annie Hopson, Thomas Potok, Jake Wilson, Katie Smith, and ACMS student Zoe Hill. Assistant Director Alex Boris, Stage Manager Melody Cox, Assistant Stage Manager Miranda Duncan, and Costume and Set Designer Allison Hill complete the team.
“’The Crucible’ is an amazing piece of theatre, of history,” said Dr. C. Austin Hill, the head of TWC’s Theatre Program.
“Though Arthur Miller clearly intended the play to speak to the McCarthy-era Communist trials, this play remains incredibly powerful and remarkably relevant. Even today, some 61 years after the play premiered, and over 300 years after the historical events on which it is based, the potential for fear and disparate ideologies to tear families, communities, and even the country itself apart remains. Our production seeks to highlight the possible ramifications of allowing fear to carry the day, of letting mistrust, or politics, overwhelm humanity.
“With ‘The Crucible’, we combine an award-winning script and a tremendous student cast and crew. This is both an exciting historical play and a harsh parable of contemporary society, and we are very excited to bring it to life.”

TREVOR NOAH ON HIS VISION FOR "DAILY SHOW"
BEVERLY HILLS, Calif. (AP) -- Trevor Noah says "The Daily Show" will still take on politics and the media when he takes over. But he says it will be from his perspective, not that of Jon Stewart, the man he's replacing. For example, Noah notes that he and Stewart have different perspectives on race -- because Stewart is a middle-aged Jewish man from New Jersey while he's black, from South Africa -- and has only been in the U.S. for about five years. He says while Stewart would have to "empathize" about race relations, he comes from "a totally different place." Noah says the biggest pressure of taking on the Comedy Central job -- is living up to the expectations that Stewart has for him to do well. Noah begins his run on September 28.

MIAMI (AP) -- Shakira's fans sure have gotten a kick out of her post that shows her new baby kicking a soccer ball. The co-judge on "The Voice" is seen on Twitter and Facebook holding her youngest son in front of a soccer ball and urging him to kick it. The baby, born in January, does -- and makes contact with the ball on his first try. The 12-second video attracted nearly 2 million views on Facebook in just an hour. The child's prowess with kicking should come as no surprise, though. Shakira is married to pro soccer star Gerard Pique.
