‘The Crucible’ to be presented November 18 and 19 at PMHS

Penn Manor Productions will present the fall play, The Crucible, at 7:30 p.m. November 18 and 19 in the Penn Manor High School auditorium.

The Crucible is set in the scorching context of the 17th-century Salem witch trials. The story includes timeless topics and a community dealing with fear, suspicion, revenge, intolerance, and the power of hysteria. 

Written by Arthur Miller, The Crucible won the 1953 Tony Award for Best Play. It is being presented at Penn Manor by special arrangement with Dramatists Play Service, Inc., New York.

Tickets are $5 for students and $7 for adults, and all seats are reserved. Click here for ticket information and orders.

Honoring Carole Shellenberger
The Crucbile marks 20 years of directing for Carole Shellenberger, who has announced that this will be her last production at Penn Manor. Alumni and friends are invited to honor Carole with a contribution to a memory book that is being created by sending photos of former plays directed by Carole or writing a note or one-page document to be printed.  

Photos, messages and questions can be sent to melissa.mintzer@pennmanor.net

Carole will be available for a “meet and greet” in the auditorium lobby outside the library following both performances.

Anyone who wishes to make a monetary donation to honor Carole can do so by contributing to the Olga P. Harvie Scholarship fund, managed by the Penn Manor Education Foundation.   

This scholarship was created by Carole in memory of her mother, who inspired Carole’s love for theatre, and is awarded to a Penn Manor High School senior pursuing a career in theatre or the performing arts industry.
