School groups visiting World Museum have a unique opportunity to see short extracts from Arthur Miller’s ‘The Crucible’ in our Treasure House Theatre on 13 February 2013. The sessions will run at 11am and 1pm and will include a chance to ask the performers questions. This event is free of charge and interested schools should email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 0151 478 4050 to book.
The play, which celebrates its 60th anniversary this year, is set in 1962 Massachusetts when a witch-hunting fury sweeps through communities. As attempts to calm the hysteria fail, families are torn apart and lives are destroyed.
Hand in Hand Theatre Productions are currently rehearsing for the powerful drama, ready for a short stint at at the Floral Pavilion’s Blue Lounge this spring. They will be running a special schools matinee show on Friday March 8 – contact the theatre for details of their special school rates.
