You are invited to attend this year’s Fall Show – 12 Angry Jurors
Friday, October 28, 5:00 PM
Saturday, October 29, 7:00 PM
White Chapel

12 Angry Jurors is a courtroom drama that examines the enormous responsibility of 12 ordinary people as they consider the guilt or innocence of a young man accused of his father’s murder.  The 12 jurors bring their own histories, prejudices, and biases to the jury room as they work through this life-or-death decision in the summer of 1957.

Tickets are $10 and will be sold at the door, available for purchase by cash, credit card, or check.  Seating is limited, and please plan on arriving early!  The White Chapel will be open for seating 30 minutes prior to showtime.
