I hope everyone is having a wonderful Fall Break! Mine hasn’t been the most relaxing due to the fact that it has been jampacked with college applications and study sessions on “The Crucible.” Nevertheless, it has been a very fun, much needed break. These two extra days have really given me a chance to sit down and memorize my lines. I am getting so, so very exicted about the Fall Play. Opening night is exaclty 3 weeks and 6 days away! For those of y’all who don’t know we are performing Arthur Miller’s “The Crucible,” a very intense, moving production about the Puritan purge of witchcraft in old Salem.

I am playing the part of Elizabeth Proctor, the wife of John Proctor. In short, my husband has committed adultery with a seventeen-year-old servant-girl, Abigail Williams. Abigail now wishes to kill me and take my place as John’s wife; so, she accuses me of witchcraft. John goes to court to face Abigail and prove my innocence, but things spin wildly out of hand. This is a very intense production in which no one can be trusted and ulterior motives rule the day.
