Thespians Presented a Courtroom Drama

Our thespians presented the thrilling drama 12 Angry Jurors on November 17-19, 2022, in our Auriana Theater. This play is a classic, mature piece of dramatic literature based upon the original 12 Angry Men by Reginald Rose starring Henry Fonda. 12 Angry Jurors is a play that contemplates the huge responsibility of 12 ordinary people as they consider the guilt or innocence of a young man accused of murder.

Judge presides over the courtroom

 

The 12 jurors bring their own histories, prejudices, and biases to the jury room as they work through this life-or-death decision. The play was originally written for men only, in a time before women could serve jury duty. The jurors' final verdict and how they reached it—in tense scenes - electrified the audience and kept them on the edge of their seats.

Jurors questioned each other

 

This is a rare drama where most of the actors are onstage the entire show. The actors needed stamina, focus and great teamwork to tackle such a production.

We are incredibly proud of the entire cast! Directed by Edie Anne Reidy Fernandez, the cast was led by seniors Morgan Adamson and Leila Martinez, and junior Sofia Santana. Special thanks to our Tech Crew led by seniors Julia Higgins and Kat Mehler.
