Princeton High School Drama Department is pleased to present the fall play Twelve Angry Jurors based on the television movie by Reginald Rose and adapted by Sherman L. Sergel. Performances are November 10 at 7 PM and 12 at 2 PM. Tickets are adults $7, children $5, and free for PHS students with ID. A 19-year-old man has just stood trial for the fatal stabbing of his father. “He doesn’t stand a chance,” mutters the guard as the 12 jurors are taken into the bleak jury room. It looks like an open-and-shut case—until one of the jurors begins opening the others’ eyes to the facts. “This is a remarkable thing about democracy,” says the foreign-born juror, “that we are notified by mail to come down to this place—and decide on the guilt or innocence of a person; of a man or woman we have not known before. We have nothing to gain or lose by our verdict. We should not make it a personal thing.” But personal as it is, with the jurors revealing their own characters as the various testimonies are re-examined, the murder is re-enacted and a new murder threat is born before their eyes! Tempers get short, arguments grow heated, and the jurors become 12 angry people. The jurors’ final verdict and how they reach it—in tense scenes that will electrify the audience and keep them on the edge of their seats—add up to a fine, mature piece of dramatic literature, an experience you’ll be proud to present. Our cast includes Jordan VandeVenter, Addison Compton, Brennan Roden, Onne Adams, Bianka Nickelsen, Ellie Welte, Wesley Shofner, Mark Kirkpatrick, Elin Workman, Phillip Goodale, Tricia Kloepping, and Angela Frost.
