It’s Miller Time

Sean McQuaid’s review of The Crucible from the Buzz

April 1996— To quote Papa Smurf: “Amazing. Simply Amazing!” Darned if I can remember the last time a community theatrical production inspired such interest hereabouts. People were lined up to see Arthur Miller’s The Crucible long before the doors opened at the MacKenzie Theatre, by which time advance sales had already guaranteed a run of packed houses - even encore performances, which sold out as well! ACT (a community theatre) deserves a round of applause for what may be their most successful production yet.

Re:ACTion - The Editor’s Column
 
One Year! In a little more than one year ACT has grown from an idea to a vibrant, ever growing organization that is reaching out to touch more and more people. It is encouraging to see how we are all learning and growing with each experience. The recent box office success with The Crucible is a measure of what we have learned about marketing (see Rob Thomson’s article on publicity), and with each production many people are expanding their experiences in different directions. It is exciting to be involved with such an enthusiastic bunch of people committed to a common cause. 
 
For those who are new members, or even thinking of becoming a member, the monthly play readings are a great way to make a start without a major commitment. The selection of plays is varied and you can even request your own favourite. Last month’s choice was an exciting one - a brand new, as yet unseen, script by Hank Stinson of Young Master Davie, adapted from Dicken’s David Copperfield. And to make it even more exciting, Helen MacCrae was there to introduce us to the music. 
 
Looking forward to seeing you all the Annual General Meeting. - the editor
