YCP TheaterWorks to hold open Auditions for Twelve Angry Men
Twelve Angry Men
FEBRUARY 26 & 28
Directed by Joel Karpoff
A 19-year-old man has just stood trial for the fatal stabbing of his father. 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 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.
Auditions are to be held on February 26 and 28 at 7:30pm at the Shrub Oak United Methodist Church at 1176 East Main Street, Shrub Oak, NY 10588. Performances are scheduled for May 4, 5, 6, 11, 12 and 13, 2018. If you have questions, please contact the director, Joel Karpoff at 914-382-1974.
