Onward and upward we climb on our quest to meet all of the Jurors in Twelve Angry Jurors. Today’s jurors … well they also are pretty nice. The name of the show is beginning to sound misleading. We promise, some of the next Jurors you meet will be angry.
Marilyn – Juror #2 returns to Midvale Arts Council in her second show. She delighted audiences and cast alike as Clairee in Steel Magnolias last year. Marilyn has played this juror previously, for another theater. Her character is a little lost and flighty but super lovable.We dare you not to like Juror #2. We sure do, and hope Marilyn comes back to play with us often!
Melanie – Juror #6. It is the quite type that you need to watch out for! Juror #6 may not have a lot to say, but everything she says is worth listening to. This is Melanie’s third show with Midvale. You might remember her as one of the Aunts in Arsenic and Old Lace. Her poison of choice then was … well arsenic … this show she is trying hard not to be the one who dies from a pandemic of common germs. Melanie tells us often that she has no problem with germs so it is a stretch to play a character who has a germaphobia. Don’t tell the other jurors, but this is the producer’s favorite character because she relates so very much with her idiosyncrasies.
Come back tomorrow to meet 2 more jurors. At least one of them will be angry.
