Our Drama Club performs twice during the school year.

In the fall, our thespians present a drama and, in the spring they perform a musical. 

 

Fall 2022 - 12 Angry Jurors

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.

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.

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.
