(Campers may be 19 if they graduated High School in May 2024)
Adapted by Sherman L. Sergel and based on the Emmy award-winning television movie by Reginald Rose which was later adapted in to the well-known film starring Harry Fonda.
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 it is, with each juror revealing his or her own character 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 Men.” The jurors’ final verdict and how they reach it—in tense scenes that will electrify your 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.
Behind the Scenes Camp will give students the opportunity to work on all the technical, backstage, and design elements. Campers will work with the directing team to take the production from design to the stage. Campers will meet with the directing team at a “Pre-Production Meeting” to begin collaborating on design for sets, costumes, props, and lights. The week of camp will be spent building and assembling all these elements, before transitioning to crew roles for the actual show. During the production, Behind the Scenes campers will serve as running crew, stage management, lighting crew, costumes crew, and more! This camp will give you a unique opportunity to work on the technical aspects of a production from their inception to their execution. Don’t miss out on building your portfolio as a theater technician, and getting a chance to work on this classic American play.
