Students review The Crucible Performance
The Brown’s Mart “The Crucible” performance was clever, entertaining and simple. The actors did a fantastic job performing as each character to show the ideas and history of the play. Shakiah Brown Year 12
The play was truly engaging and the lighting allowed for the audience to be captivated by the story of the Proctors. I really enjoyed the choreography and placement of characters. However I believe the character of Giles Corey could have been developed a little bit more to show his courage to protect his land. Mayatili Picton Year 12
Very intriguing, thought- provoking play which expanded my horizon on the perspectives and art forms. Nuhansi Wijesinghe Year 10
“The Crucible” play performance at Brown's Mart theatre, although hobbled by the limited space, is a great rendition of this classic literary masterpiece. The performance was of high production value, shown through the lighting, acting, wardrobe and staging; a must see for any fans of theatre. Cameron Sweet, Year 12
It was good. I liked it. Evan Keith, Year 12
On Monday, April 7, 93 students from Year 10 – 12 English classes attended an impressive matinée performance of The Crucible by Arthur Miller at Brown’s Mart. Above are some of the responses to the production from four of the ninety-three students from English who attended. With a stripped down stage and excellent set, lighting and sound design, the actors delivered a powerful performance of this tragic story of the fear, mass hysteria and executions surrounding the witchcraft trials in Salem, Massachusetts in 1692.
As one teacher commented, it was particularly exciting for staff to be able to offer students a rare opportunity to attend a live theatre production of a play a number have studied or will study in their Senior Years. The high quality of the acting and the production values resulted in an original and vital interpretation of the play.
