CA Studio Performs Arthur Miller Classic "The Crucible"

CA Studio Facebook
Cast members of "The Crucible" pose at Lea's of LeCompte, where the play is brought to life.

CA Studio performs Arthur Miller's The Crucible November 3 and 4, 10 and 11 in pie and dinner theatre at Lea's of Lecompte in Monroe. Originally written as an allegory for McCarthyism in the U.S., The Crucible dramatizes the Salem witch trials.
The Crucible, written by Arthur Miller in 1953, is a dramatized and partially fictionalized story of the Salem Witch Trials that took place in the Massachusetts Bay Colony in 1692-3. 

According to Cathy Webb, owner and director of CA Studio, CeJay Gautreaux (John Proctor), JoJo Clark, (Mary Warren), and Laura Ulrich (Elizabeth Proctor) are really getting into character. A retired policeman driving by during a rehearsal pounded on the door of Lea's and insisted on breaking up a threatened "whipping" John Proctor gives servant Mary Warren for disobedience.
