Production Description

Casting the play "Burn the Black Dog." Project description: "At St. Cyprian's School for Girls, the rivalry between the Seniors and Freshman is a time honored tradition. This year's class wars are a competition for everything: the attention of their favorite teacher, their status in the school, their mastery of the black arts-until things go too far and Beth Parris ends up missing. With the small town of Antioch in an uproar over her disappearance, Principal Parris leaves no stone unturned to bring his daughter back home safely. When the eyes of his investigation fall on Abigail and her cohorts, they resort to accusations against the faculty beyond anything the church and small community are ready to handle."
