"For me, Elizabeth Proctor demonstrates vulnerability—she has clearly been hurt by her husband's infidelity—but also tremendous strength. She has found a way to successfully navigate the constraints of her society, while the "afflicted girls" can only rebel against them." Corinne Wieben
Corinne is thrilled to continue her fifth season with OpenStage, having recently appeared in Monty Python’s Spamalot. Other recent performances include Marquise-Thérèse in OpenStage’s La Bête and Macon in Bas Bleu Readers Theatre’s Abundance. In addition to her Colorado appearances (including six under the direction of Peter Anthony), Corinne has performed with numerous companies in her home state of California, including The Central Coast Shakespeare Festival, San Luis Obispo Repertory Theater and The Great American Melodrama and Vaudeville. Favorite past roles include Becky in Becky’s New Car, Anna in Burn This and Agnes in A Bright Room Called Day. Elizabeth Proctor is a dream role, and Corinne would like to thank Peter, the cast and crew of The Crucible, and you, the audience, for letting her live it.

“… the raw terror in Arthur Miller’s The Crucible … makes the flesh creep.” -The New York Times
The year is 1692. The village of Salem is feverish with tales of witchcraft. Deep-seated jealousies, lust and greed are erupting in the form of deadly accusations. Revenge has replaced reason; mere rumors are now damning evidence — and no one is safe. As neighbor turns against neighbor, Salem descends into a cauldron of hysteria from which it can never return. Astoundingly relevant, Arthur Miller’s enduring masterpiece dares to put us all on trial. 1953 Tony Award for Best Play. Contains adult themes.
