Winter Play - Twelve Angry JurorsPublished by tyler.lewis on Fri, 02/26/2016 - 13:56
Students of the Maple Mountain Theatre Department are putting the finishing touches on the MMHS Winter Play, Twelve Angry Jurors. This play is the stage version of the classic film 12 Angry Men. The story focuses on a jury room as the 12 individuals debate the guilt of a young man on trial for the murder of his father. The deliberations reveal the biases and prejudices of the jury members who start out wanting a quick guilty verdict. A lone juror suggests that the responsibility of those in the room is to look beyond their first impressions to see if they can uncover the truth. As they debate, the audience is asked to place themselves in the jurors' shoes and consider where they stand.
Acting and tech students have been working on this piece since early January. The cast includes Ben Gleason, Hannah Wood, Ondine Morgan, Adam Gowers, Marguerite Morgan, Jaren Wood, Nicole James, Cassandra Smith, Emma Garlitz, Corbin Radford, Shay Swenson, Jasmine Johnson, and Ryan Hawkins. The play will perform for four nights: Thursday, March 3;Friday, March 4; Saturday, March 5; and Monday, March 7. Performances begin at 7:00 PM, and the cost is $5 for students and $6 for adults.
Twelve Angry Jurors will be performed in an intimate space - all seating will be on the auditorium stage surrounding a 468 square foot jury room. We want to audience to truly feel a part of the world of the play. As such, seating is limited.
