“Innocent until proven guilty. Presumption of innocence. Proof, beyond a reasonable doubt.”
These principles pepper the story of 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. The show highlights the deliberation process as the jurors’ debate the guilt and innocence of a young man accused of killing his father. The story is not as clear cut as some jurors think it should be. This show features the amazing onstage talents of Ethan Chidester, Marilyn Gallaway, Jennifer Hamilton, Mark Hanson, Gloria Johnson, Christopher Kucera, Kristen Newman, Michele Rideout, Julie Simonich, McKenzie Stanworth, Melanie Turner, and Jeremiah Wing. This ensemble cast is skillfully directed by Melody Chapman with assistance by DeeDee Palmer.
