Cañada College Theater Arts Presents:The Crucible by Arthur Miller

Cañada College Theater Arts Presents:
The Crucible by Arthur Miller

In a small Puritan settlement in Massachusetts, in the late 17th century, deeply rooted secrets, resentments, and lies have begun to surface in a world dominated by religious extremism. Neighbor turns against neighbor as the paranoia, mass hysteria, and power politics of the Salem witch trials – fuelled by the reckless accusations of young women, and lead by men hungry for power, prestige and land - overcome an entire community. This allegory of the Communist “witch hunt” of the 1950s McCarthy-era won the Tony Award for Best Play in 1953, and has fascinated and electrified audiences for decades. This ambitious production features a large, all-student cast and is directed by Professor Anna Budd, with lighting, sound and set design by resident designer Mike Walsh.

The Crucible opens Thursday 4/21 and runs for one weekend only. Tickets are available at the door, and will be available online at:

$5 students, $10 seniors, $15 general admission. No one turned away for lack of funds!

Location: Flex Theatre, Cañada College Campus, Redwood City. (Building 3, Room 129).

Learning English Led to a New Life for Redwood City’s Patricia Segura

After moving from Mexico five years ago, Patricia Segura knew she would have to master English to stay in the United States, find a job, and fulfill her goal of studying to become a nurse. But without command of the language, going to college seemed impossible.

“When I decided to stay in this country, I wanted to keep studying as I was doing in my country,” she said. “Learning English became a new short-term goal in my life. I wanted to study English in college but I had to start from the beginning.”

She began taking community-based English courses offered by Cañada College at Sequoia High School. Later she moved to John Gill Elementary School to take a course because her nephew was in the class.

“When I started at Cañada, my goal was to learn English to find a job,” she said. “Now I'm pursuing my goal of becoming a nurse. The more I …
