The senior acting company at Belmont secondary school will hunt witches in The Crucible.

A jealous mistress starts rumours of witches to try and get her love interest John Proctor away from him wife Elizabeth.

“She won’t take no for an answer,” said Raylene Robinson, who plays Abigail the mistress.

Robinson said she was fascinated by the script as it is based on the historical events of the Salem witch trials.

Ryan White, who plays John Proctor, explained even though the production is a historical one it relates to struggles of today.

“People are being accused of something and without proof the other people just believe it,” said the Grade 12 actor.

The entire play is a student production with students painting sets, sewing costumes and acting.

This is the first time The Crucible is being performed at the school.

“It’s a fast-paced play. This has been a challenge for the students, but they have met the challenge and it’s amazing to watch them and see how far they have come,” said teacher and director Melissa Young

The play is performed in the the drama room at Belmont secondary March 12 and 13 at 7 p.m. Doors open at 6:30 p.m. Admission is by donation.
