Twelve Angry Men, in the form of Twelve Angry Jurors, is coming to Sun Lakes. This adaptation features an all-gender cast and is scheduled to play in Sun Lakes November 6 through 10.
Auditions for the play will be March 28 at 1:00 p.m. in the San Tan Ballroom. Anyone interested in trying out for a part should contact Howard Hummel at 541-514-0000 for a script and an audition packet. The audition packet will contain monologues from characters in the play as well as additional items.
Auditions are open to anyone who is a resident of Sun Lakes or SunBird, but anyone receiving a part will be expected to join the Sun Lakes Community Theatre (SLCT).
In addition, those interested in auditioning should also watch the DVD starring Henry Fonda and Lee J. Cobb to understand the staging of the original production and to see the roles each of the jurors play. The Maricopa County Library system has copies of the play, which can be requested through the Robson Library.
This Emmy award-winning play by Reginald Rose was originally written for television and has proven to be a timeless piece in its exploration of human nature.
Rehearsals for the play will begin in mid-September.
