Arthur Miller's The Crucible is a staple of theater companies around the world; however, the Civic Ballet of San Luis Obispo's adaptation of the classic play is a first for dance.
Artistic Director Drew Silvaggio's The Crucible is made modern and relevant through Silvaggio's masterful use of film, video, contemporary music and modern choreography.

Set in 1950's America, the Civic Ballet's adaptation of the play is darkly humorous and entertaining. Miller's themes of persecution and paranoia are made even more emotionally powerful through contemporary music and modern dance. Silvaggio's masterful juxtaposition of classics such as Frank Sinatra's "Witchcraft" and The Eagle's "Witchy Woman" makes this production infinitely entertaining.
