The Department of Theatre and Dance is offering 1000 bucks and a trophy to the student organization with the most butts in seats and corresponding votes this season. Each night every audience member has the opportunity to vote for their favorite competing organization by writing the organization’s name on the back of their ticket stub at the end of the performance. The ticket stubs will be tallied to determine the winner at the end of the year. The organization with the most votes wins $1000, a trophy, and the bragging rights on campus. So help us get butts in seats and win bucks!

Written in 1953, Miller's play, which used the Salem Witch Trials of the late-seventeenth century to comment on the McCarthyism of his time, speaks to us in profound and similar ways today as we prepare for a controversial and significant election in America. Whether a conservative or liberal, Republican or Democrat, The Crucible asks us to consider the ways in which fact and fiction, as well as the narrative perspective, lead us to believe, distrust, and imagine our own historical moment in time. Box Office is open from 10-5. Phone 330.263.2241 to reserve tickets.
