'The Crucible' on stage

NORWALK - The theater department at Cerritos College will present the Arthur Miller classic, "The Crucible," Oct. 8-17 in the campus's Burnight Studio Theatre.According to a press release, the tragic drama about the Salem Witch Trials in 1692 draws a corollary to the McCarthyism of the early 1950s and the "Red Scare" in which a private industry panel took political action and made accusations of disloyalty, subversion or treason without proper regard for evidence. Pre-sale tickets are $12, or $10 for students and seniors. Tickets at the door are $12-$15. Tickets may be purchased online at www.cerritos.edu/theatre. For more information on "The Crucible," including a list of show times, call (562) 467-5058 or visit www.cerritos.edu/theatre.
