    Abrianna Harris, Alexis Wildermuth and Jaucqir Lafond put on emotional performances.

With their final production of the 2016-2017 season, the Wesleyan Wolf Players ended on a solemn note with the emotional, convicting and memorable performance of Arthur Miller’s “The Crucible.”

Taking place in Salem, Massachusetts in 1692, The Crucible follows the twisted agendas, drastic behavior and the widespread paranoia of the Salem Witch Trials. More specifically the story follows the mischievous and deceitful Abigail Williams, played by Darby Carroll, as her web of lies entangles her former lover John Proctor and his wife Elizabeth, played by Seniors Zach Green and Emily Sabonis-Chaffee.

Farewell Faculty: Wesleyan Says Goodbye to Beloved Staff

Amelia Davis: Director of Christian Life

Amelia Davis

What are your plans for the future? Well, when I stop crying about the reality that I won’t be back next fall, I will settle in to my role as a work from home wife and mom.  I am excited to serve wherever God has a place for me. Jeff and I have applied to be foster parents, so I pray that God will open this door for us soon.  Finally, I will continue to engage my entrepreneurial heart as a Manager at Beautycounter.  Our mission is to put safer personal care products in to the hands of everyone, as we advocate and work to make an impact on a largely unregulated skin care industry in the US.  I also hope to sub for Global Justice whenever possible and even fill in as a chaperone on mission trips as needed!
