Be prepared to witness justice Salem style. Hear the testimony. Cringe at the magistrate. Plead with the accused.

The playwright brings her legal eye to the production and bases the play on historical documents. Miller stages the performance with the best local performers and gives the production a realism that rocks a contemporary audience.

The performances are FREE with admission to the Great American Harvest Fest. This is a first come, first seated event. The play may not be suitable for very small children. But worth it for everyone else!

TWO PERFORMANCES! 

11AM & 2 PM


The Great American Harvest Fest joins for the first time two popular events, Old Home Day and Pumpkin Picking!  This will get you rootin’, tootin’, and feelin’ fine!
