In the spring of 2005, the drama and music departments mounted a production of “The Sound of Music” at the Vital Express theater at College of the Canyons. Although the theme dabbles in the occult and persecution, which might be considered seasonal, Prucha said she selected the show in homage to the late playwright. “I picked ‘The Crucible’ for several reasons,” she said. “First of all, it is part of the 11th-grade literature core and is a very meaningful show. Also, Arthur Miller passed away this year and this is a great tribute to him. It also lends itself to an intimate space.” The REP seats just over 80. With the limited seating, Prucha recommended that people purchase tickets early. Performances are scheduled for 7 p.m. today, Friday and Saturday and 2 p.m. Sunday. Tickets are $10 and can be purchased at the Golden Valley student store and, if available, at the door. “The Crucible” has a cast of 22, featuring Matt McClenahan as John Proctor, Amanda Hubbell as Elizabeth Proctor, Katrina Blanchard as Abigail Williams, Francesca Riso as Mary Warren, Wesley Schilling as the Rev. Hale and Bryan Kwon as the Rev. Parris. For information, call Prucha at (661) 298-8140, Ext. 1616.

NEWHALL – Beware the witches of Golden Valley – they gather tonight to cast a classic spell. “The Crucible,” Arthur Miller’s play about the dramatic events surrounding the Salem witch trials of 1692 with parallels to 1950s McCarthyism, will open tonight at the Repertory East Playhouse on San Fernando Road in the Newhall arts district. Instead of the REP’s actors, these performers are students in the drama department of Golden Valley High School. As the students await the completion of their own theater, instructor Janie Prucha has taught them to take their show on the road. “These students are certainly getting a snapshot of what life in the theater is like; when you’re on the road, you never know where you’re going to perform and you have to be adaptable,” Prucha said. “I’m told we should be able to be in our theater on campus at the beginning of next year.”
