THE CRUCIBLE
October 5 - 8 and 12 - 15 at 7:30 p.m. in the CSI Fine Arts Theater
THE CRUCIBLE: October 5 – 8 and 12 – 15 at 7:30 p.m. in the CSI Fine Arts TheaterThe Crucible, an American classic and winner of the Tony Award for Best Play in 1953, recounts the events surrounding the Salem witch trials in Massachusetts during the 17th Century. The story focuses upon a young farmer, his wife, and a young servant-girl who maliciously causes the wife's arrest for witchcraft, initiating a flurry of accusations, public trials, and hangings in the small Puritan community. Arthur Miller wrote the play as a vehicle to publicly confront McCarthyism and the trials held by the House of Representatives' Committee on Un-American Activities, which led to the black-listing of numerous American artists in the 1950s. Join CSI Theater Department, in collaboration with Twin Falls High School Bruin Players as we bring this exciting and fast-paced tale to the CSI stage. There has never been a more relevant time in our society to engage in a discussion of Miller's themes.

ANTIGONICK
April 26 - 29 and May 3 - 6 at 7:30 p.m. in the CSI Fine Arts Theater
ANTIGONICK: April 26 – 29 and May 3-6 at 7:30 p.m. in the CSI Fine Arts TheaterAncient Greece looks suspiciously similar to the present day in the hands of world-renowned poet and MacArthur Genius Anne Carson. Antigone has lost two brothers but by law can only bury one. She takes a stand for her beliefs, pitting morality against patriotism, and in doing so starts a series of events that threaten the new-found national peace. It's one of the most famous myths of all, told and re-told for more than two thousand years, but what use is a cautionary tale if no one heeds it? The CSI Theater, Dance, and Visual Arts Department join creative forces to bring Carson's biting and thrilling translation of Antigone to life in a production that casts unexpected shadows on issues of loyalty and family.
