Crucible Comes to Kilgore

The Kilgore College Theatre Department will present Arthur Miller's Tony award-winning play The Crucible beginning October 12 in Van Cliburn Auditorium on the Kilgore campus.

The play is set for 7:30 p.m. Thursday through Saturday, October 12 through 14, with a matinee performance 2:30 p.m. Sunday, October 15.

There are also two special morning performances scheduled for area schools and community organizations set for 10:30 a.m. October 12 and 13 which will feature an educational presentation and discussion with the play’s cast and crew after the show.

General admission tickets are $10 for adults, $7 for students and $5 for Kilgore students with student IDs. Discounted ticket pricing is available for groups of 10 or more.

The play chronicles events surrounding the Salem witch trials and the paranoia and deceit that gripped many Puritan towns of New England during the late 17th century.

Inspired by the McCarthy hearings of the 1950s when the U.S. government blacklisted accused communists, Miller's play reveals how accusations of witchcraft led to one town's undoing.

The play is appropriate for all ages, but children under the age of 7 will not be admitted. Late arrivals will also not be admitted.

The box office will open one hour prior to each performance.

Tickets can be purchased online at or by phone at 903.983.8126.
