Twelve Angry Jurors

Seaman High School, 4850 NW Rochester Rd-66617
A dramatic play, will be performed In-The-Roud on stage.
A 19 year old man has just stood trial for the fatal stabbing of his father. 12 Jurors now have the responsibility of a unanimous vote or guilty or not guilty. Within this process the murder is re-enaced. Tempers flare, arguments become heated and the jurors become angry, revealing their own character flaws and biases. This play is one and the same as the 1957 black and white film starring Henry Fonda. Come join us in the jury room, and cast your vote on this man's guilt or innocence. Tickets are only $6 and sold at the door.
