The Crucible, Snow College’s fall play was sold out the last two nights. There were many favorable responses to the performances.
In an interview, Dallin Featherstone, the play’s lead, talked about getting the role. He said, “I had to try not to cry. I had wanted to play this role since my junior year in high school. He [Proctor] is my favorite character in literature and history. I think the best way to say it would be to say I was ecstatic.”
Describing his favorite part of the performance, Dallin said “There were very intense scenes, and the actors were very committed in both the rehearsals and the actual performances. They took it to a new emotional level. We were so committed and in the moment that we weren’t acting anymore, it became a completely honest way of communication and storytelling.”
Dallin also wished to thank all of his fellow cast and crew members of the play saying “Every single person helped. They were committed to everything. Our primary goal was to tell the story and do it justice. The whole cast was supportive, and the director was very patient with us.”
He closed the interview by reciting his favorite line from the play “Give them no tear. Show them a heart of stone and sink them with it” and said that the play was such a success because of its message: “Your integrity is, in the end, along with your name, the only things you can hold on to. Because if your name is soiled by lack of integrity your name means nothing”
