Create, Compete, Collapse. Play Fest brings 70+ volunteers together for an unforgettable 24 hour race to put on a show. On Friday, February 7, 2020 all these volunteers will arrive at the Wood Theater with no idea what will happen in the next day. Those brave souls will be randomly formed into nine teams, each with 1 writer, 1 director and 3-4 actors. Then a theme for the Fest will be announced and teams will meet for 1 hour before writers go home to write their ten-minute plays (to the year’s theme). Writers must email scripts by 5 AM on Saturday morning. Teams assemble at the theater on Saturday morning and have until the curtain opens at 8 PM to rehearse, memorize and stage 9 ten-minute plays. Audience votes decide the winning writer, director, actor and actress!

The Crucible is a 1953 play by American playwright Arthur Miller. It is a dramatized and partially fictionalized story of the Salem witch trials that took place in the Massachusetts Bay Colony during 1692–93. Miller wrote the play as an allegory for McCarthyism, when the United States government persecuted people accused of being communists. Miller was questioned by the House of Representatives’ Committee on Un-American Activities in 1956 and convicted of contempt of Congress for refusing to identify others present at meetings he had attended. The Crucible will be providing reduced ticket prices for students as the play is part of the NYS high school curriculum.
