What does it mean to be in a production team?

Theater productions usually have an army of workers behind the scenes to pull of what is seen on stage.  Twelve Angry Jurors had a much much smaller crew than normal. This production team, or pro team, consisted of 5 individuals: Producer Stephanie Johnson, Director Melody Chapman, Assistant Director (Production Assistant) DeeDee Palmer, Stage Manager/Tech Jacob […]

Juror Spotlight 8 & 12

For our final Juror spotlights we will introduce you to Mark and Jen. Mark – Juror 8 stands alone at first. He is the character who starts the show unconvinced that it is easy just to throw away a life. Mark can equally play dramatic and comedic characters. His compassion in real life translates well […]

Juror Spotlight 5 & 11

These two men are our gentle giants! Ethan – Juror 5 has played this part previously for another theater. We took what he already did and built some goth into it as well. Ethan is an amazingly gentle soul and plays the Juror from the streets. He “grew up on the wrong side of the […]

Twelve Angry Jurors

This dramatic play is based on the beloved movie from 1957, Twelve Angry Men. Twelve Angry Jurors tells the story of a jury who has just adjourned from closing arguments in a murder trial. […]
