I’m thrilled to announce that after a 7 year hiatus from the community theater stage, I will be getting back on one as a cast member of “12 Angry Jurors” at The Village Players of Hatboro opening in October!
You may know this story by its original name, “12 Angry Men,” about a jury of 12 deliberating on the fate of a young, troubled teenager, accused of murdering his father.
The version of the story we’re doing has been adapted to allow for a diverse mix of genders, races, and ages. We’re also adapting it to modern times because the story is timeless and, quite honestly, very timely.
Who among us is able to forego our natural inclinations, biases, and prejudices, to allow for the possibility of reasonable doubt? Does our justice system really live by the motto “Innocent until proven guilty?” These are the questions myself and 11 others will face in October and I hope you can be there to join us.
The show is directed by Gina Lutz; a former social worker herself, and one of the most empathetic people I know. Need I say more? We’re in good hands. In fact… this alone is why I felt compelled to audition. I know she’s going to do this right. So I’m happy to just be a part in this.
Obviously, I’ll be sending out invites as the opening date draws closer. But in the meantime, feel free to “Like” The Village Players of Hatboro Page and learn more about the venue on their website (which I’ve also been maintaining for the last 9 years) at www.thevillageplayers.com.
