Lorain’s theatrical production company returns to the forefront.
MAD * Factory production of Arthur Miller’s “The Crucible” will hit Broadway in Lorain on October 8, 9 and 10.
Nina Fisher, program director for MAD * Factory, said she and her company were thrilled to have a live audience.
“This is our first live in-person production since the pandemic,” Fisher said. “This is our first full production that is not online.
“Were very happy.”
A summer production took place outdoors with an online show during the novel coronavirus pandemic, Fisher
“We’re known for our in-person productions so it feels good to be back in our element,” she said. “It’s hard work getting back to it, but it’s definitely exciting. “
The shows will take place at 2655 Broadway and begin at 7 p.m. on October 8 and 9; and 2 p.m. for the morning of October 10.
Tickets cost $ 15 for adults and $ 12 for students; payment will be accepted in cash or by check.
Fisher said tickets can be purchased online or at the door.
“We only sell 50 tickets for each production, so our theater is at half capacity,” she said. “We are being cautious and demand that masks be worn indoors.”
“The Crucible” is a scripted recreation of the Salem Witch Trials.
“The story follows a group of girls who accuse the whole town of being witches,” Fisher said. “We follow faith stories and find out who is lying and who is not.”
Production is timely for the season, she said.
“It’s not a Halloween show, but it’s scary,” Fisher said. “We are looking at the vibes of the season.”
According to its website, MAD * Factory’s mission is to empower and inspire people of all ages through music, art and theater.
