SAN ANGELO, TX — University Theatre at Angelo State University will present the Tony Award-winning drama "The Crucible" for its first production of the spring season, beginning Thursday, February 22, in the ASU Modular Theatre inside the Carr Education-Fine Arts (EFA) Building at 2602 Dena Drive.

Show times will be at 8 p.m. each night, February 22-24 and February 29 - March 2, with a matinee finale performance on Sunday, March 3, at 2 p.m.

Tickets are $10 for the general public, $5 for non-ASU students, and free for Arts at ASU subscribers, ASU students, and ASU activity card holders. Tickets are available for purchase online at or through the ASU box office in the Carr EFA Building.

Written by Arthur Miller and winner of a 1953 Tony Award, "The Crucible" dramatizes the story of the Salem witch trials that took place in the Massachusetts Bay Colony during 1692-93. It focuses on a young farmer, his wife, and a young servant-girl who maliciously causes the wife's arrest for witchcraft. The farmer brings the girl to court to admit the lie - and it is here that the monstrous course of bigotry and deceit is terrifyingly depicted. The farmer, instead of saving his wife, finds himself also accused of witchcraft and ultimately condemned with a host of others.
