FRAMINGHAM, MA - Next weekend, the Framingham High School Drama Company will present Arthur Miller’s The Crucible. The show opens November 3rd at Walsh Middle School and there will be performances at 7:30pm on the 3rd, 4th and 5th. Tickets can be reserved by calling 508-620-4963 ext. 1605 and will be eight dollars.
The Crucible marks the first production of the Drama Company’s 2005-2006 season. They will follow up with Tales of Trickery, this year’s entry into the Massachusetts High School Drama Guild Festival and a spring musical that will be announced shortly.
With over one hundred members, the Drama Company contributes a large presence to the High School and the Framingham community. In addition to staging three main-stage productions, as well as many smaller scale performances, concerts and showcases, the Drama Company focuses much of its efforts on community outreach within the other arts departments of the Framingham School system. This year the Drama Company has many students interning at the middle and elementary schools to assist with their shows and help build their programs.
The widespread interest of the Drama Company has contributed to its growing success over the last four years. With over 80 students auditioning for The Crucible and many more involved with technical aspects, it will reflect the hard work and dedication of all involved. Director, Donna Wresinski, has stated that this is the most challenging piece she has attempted to bring to life during her time at Framingham. But with the help of her many talented actors and student set, costume, lighting and props designers, the show will prove to be worth the risk.
We hope you will join the Drama Club for an enjoyable evening at the theater! November 3rd, 4th and 5th, 2005, 7:30 PM at Walsh Middle School.
