WHITE ROCK — White Rock Players' Club has opened its movies-themed season with The Crucible, the Arthur Miller drama written in 1953.
The play opened the company's 69th season Wednesday, Oct. 9 and continues until Oct. 26 at Coast Capital Playhouse, 1532 Johnston Rd.
Miller's script recounts the events surrounding the Salem Witch Trials, a time when paranoia, hysteria and deceit gripped the Puritan towns of New England.

Rebecca Strom (as Abigail Williams), Tom Gage (John Hale), Mike Busswood (Giles Corey) and Jane Mantle (Ann Putnam).
