A staged reading of “The Crucible” by Arthur Miller was held Oct. 20 and 21 in the Muscoot Farm Straw Barn, which dates from the 1800s. The reading was presented by the Friends of Muscoot, directed by Christine DiTota and produced by Mary Roberts. The character of Betty was played by Eowyn Keenan, a sixth grader at North Salem Middle School. In the play, Betty, along with her cousin Abigail Williams, comes to accuse her neighbors of witchcraft, launching Salem into a hysteria of fear and revenge.
