TU holds auditions for ’12 Angry Jurors’

Post Published On:

Thomas University hold auditions for its April theatre production of “12 Angry Jurors” from 7 to 8:30 p.m. Tuesday, Dec. 10, in the Flowers Foods Executive Classroom inside Smith-Bonvillian Hall on TU’s Forbes Campus. Community members are welcome to audition. Backstage opportunities are also available.

The production will be directed by Peggy Brady, TU”s Resident Artist in Theatre.

This is a dramatic play that not only has wonderful roles but is as current today as it was when it was first performed in the 1950s,” Brady said.  “Of course, there has been a little progress made since then. The obvious one being why we now refer to it as ‘12 Angry Jurors’ rather than its more famous title of ’12 Angry Men,’ a teleplay starring Henry Fonda.”

The production is part of Arts for the Community at Thomas University (ACTU). Performances will be April 23-25 in TU’s Flowers Foods Executive Classroom. Excerpts of the play script are available in advance of the Dec. 10 auditions by emailing pbrady@thomasu.edu.

“The play ‘12 Angry Jurors’ covers some timeless issues about human nature,” Brady said. “We have this justice system in place that still depends on sound legal practice by attorneys and the considered judgment of 12 people, who are sitting there sifting through all the evidence. In this case it illustrates how we bring our feelings, maybe biases and definitely our personalities into what is an important civic duty. People are making judgments with and about people from other places, other neighborhoods, other countries, and making serious decisions that affect the life of another human being.”
