From Limelight Theatre

St. Augustine, FL — Told through the eyes of a teenager, A Voice in the Dark: A Salem Story is a thrilling and poignant tale from one of the darkest eras in American history.

Students in grades 6th-12th are staging this KidzfACTory play on the Matuza Main Stage at Limelight Theatre, 11 Old Mission Ave., uptown St. Augustine.

Abigail Hobbs, a shy, yet kind 15-year-old, lives a modest, happy life. But things are changing in Salem, Mass. Healthy girls are becoming ill and whispering of the devil are in the air. Two women have been hung as witches, and a third accused is missing still. When the Nurse Family, with whom Abigail is close, becomes the center of new suspicions, Abigail accidentally uncovers information that could save them.

She is faced with a difficult choice: Will she remain silent and let the witch hunt continue? Or will she risk her own safety and speak out for what is right?

The show is directed by Leah Page, with Alison Zador as Assistant Director and Costumes; light and sound design by Miles Mosher; and Izabella Unice as booth operator. The cast list is below.

Show times are 5 p.m. Oct. 30; and 11 a.m. Oct. 31 and Nov. 1. Tickets are $10 for adults, $5 for children. For reservations, call 905-825-1164 or go to limelight-theatre.org
