SJR Drama Produces a Classic Play

posted: Wednesday, January 11, 2017

During the first term, a dedicated group of students worked on this year's Senior School Major Production, The Crucible by Arthur Miller. This highly-charged and challenging play inspired by the 1692 Salem Witch Trials is one of the landmark dramas of the 20th Century. The Crucible depicts how difficult it is to defend societal principles and human dignity when a community is consumed by paranoia and hysteria.

Over fifty Senior School students were involved in the Major Production in some way or another. This includes the outstanding cast of twenty students in Grades 11 and 12, a dedicated stage manager, technical production assistants, set and poster designers, and a large group of students who helped to paint the set. Led by director Ms. Amanda Alexander, their combined efforts resulted in a powerful, moving and memorable production in December. Congratulations to the talented, committed cast and their supportive crew!
