THE CRUCIBLE – LAST CHANCE!

Don’t miss this last opportunity to see The Crucible! In the Puritan New England town of Salem, Massachusetts, one girl’s plot to ensnare a married man explodes into a fever of paranoia, accusation and execution.  Arthur Miller’s classic dramatization of the Salem witch trials cleverly framed McCarthyist America of the 1950s, and still rings with some relevance today. The Friday show is at 7:30 p.m. and the final performance is Sunday at 2 p.m.  NOTE: There will be no Saturday performance. The Limelight Theatre is located at 11 Old Mission Road in St. Augustine. Tickets are $25 for adults, $22 for seniors and $20 for students and military. For more information, call 904.825.1164 or visit www.limelight-theatre.org
