Auditions: The Crucible at Newington Children’s Theatre Company


Attention Tweens & Teens:

Auditions for NCTC’s THE CRUCIBLE are Set for November 2 & 3.

The Newington Children’s Theatre Company (NCTC) has announced auditions for their tween and teen drama,
THE CRUCIBLE, written by Arthur Miller. Auditions will take place on Friday, November 2, and Saturday,
November 3, by appointment. Auditions are open to tweens and teens, ages 12-18. Each audition will last
approximately five minutes. Tweens and teens are asked to prepare a dramatic monologue of their choice.
There will also be cold readings from the script. Please call 860.666.NCTC (6282) to obtain an audition form
and to reserve your audition time.

Winner of the Tony Award for Best Play, THE CRUCIBLE by Arthur Miller is an ageless tale of fear, greed and
power written by one of the greatest American playwrights of all time. When teenage girls are discovered trying
to conjure spirits, the 17th century town of Salem explodes with accusations of witchcraft. The vicious trials that
follow expose a community paralyzed by terror, religious extremism and greed, and a marriage forever changed.

THE CRUCIBLE will be directed by NCTC’s Executive/Artistic Director, Claire Van Cott. Rehearsals will be
November 17 through January 17. Performances will be January 18-20, Friday and Saturday at 7:00pm,
Saturday & Sunday at 2:00pm.

Auditions, rehearsals and performances will be held at the NCTC Performing Arts Theatre located at 743 North
Mountain Road in Newington. Please note while there is no cost to audition, if cast, there is a $250 participation
fee. To reserve your tween or teen’s five-minute audition appointment, please call 860.666.NCTC.
