'Twelve Angry Jurors' Argue at Santa Clarita Repertory Theatre
SANTA CLARITA 12 Angry Jurors convene at the Santa Clarita Repertory Theatre April 23-25 as the College of the Canyons Theatre Department hosts its version of the classic courtroom drama 12 Angry Men.
Both men and women were cast in the staring roles, so the name was changed slightly, but the story remains the same as it follows the deliberations of a split jury and the efforts of one juror to sway the minds of the other eleven.
The cast is also diverse in its level of acting expertise as both new and experienced actors are performing in the play. Jeffery Rollins, who plays Juror #3, has a nationally syndicated radio show, is a national instructor for the Columbia School of Broadcasting and personally tutored Jim Carrey for Carrey's role as a broadcaster in "Bruce Almighty" while Marcus Briscoe, who played varsity golf for Valencia High School, enters the cast as Juror #5 in just his second theater production.
The production runs for three days with four shows: Friday, April 23rd at 8 p.m., Saturday, April 24th at both 2 and 8 p.m. and Sunday, April 25th at 2 p.m. Tickets are $8.00 for general admission and $6.00 for students with a valid ID. The Santa Clarita Repertory Theater is located at 24266 San Fernando Road in Newhall. For ticket purchases, please call the repertory box office line at 661-222-7278.
