BAHS to present ‘Twelve Angry Jurors’

BELLEFONTE — The Bellefonte Area High School Theatre Department will present its winter production “Twelve Angry Jurors” on Jan. 31, and Feb. 1 and 2 at 7 p.m. The shows will be staged in the Bellefonte Area High School Theatre, 830 E. Bishop Street, Bellefonte.

On a hot summer day after a long trial, a jury must decide whether a 19-year-old man is guilty of murdering his father. The jury votes 11-1 that the man is guilty of the crime, but laws in the United States require a unanimous vote by all 12 jurors in order to pass judgment.

Tempers flare as the 11 jurors try their best to convince the one dissenter to come around to their side. As the evidence is re-examined, however, new uncertainties come to light, forcing everyone to truly question if there is in fact some measure of "reasonable doubt".

“Twelve Angry Jurors” is a heightened courtroom thriller that puts you on the edge of your seat while powerfully exploring what it means to live in a democracy.

Based on the Emmy Award-Winning Television movie by Reginald Rose and adapted by Sherman L. Sergel

Tickets are $7 for adults, $5 for students and children. Tickets are general seating and can be purchased online at www.basd.net/finearts or at the door the night of performance. Doors open at 6:30 p.m.
