Two Of Us Productions Presents 12 Angry Jurors, Oct 21 – 23

The Two Of Us Productions, presents 12 Angry Jurors. This production puts you, the audience, in the midst of the jury deliberations of a homicide trial. A dozen local citizens are entrusted with deciding the fate of a teenage boy accused of murdering his abusive father. As the play opens, our 12 jurors are nearly unanimous in concluding the youth is guilty. One juror dissents, declaring the young man "not guilty" and proceeding to sow a seed of reasonable doubt . As the emotionally charged jury deliberations proceed you are a right there as our jury struggles to understand the sworn testimony of several witnesses, to decide for themselves what is credible and what is “reasonable doubt”. The jury’s decision is a surprise that you don’t want to miss.

12 Angry Jurors features Brian Yorck, Zach Nayer, John Leinung, Debra Hughes, Kevin Hunt, Elaine Leinung, Karissa Payson, Connie Lopez, Diane Boice-Yorck, Candi Wood, Mark Leinung, and Cyndi Miller as the 12 jurors deciding a murder trial, supported by a voiceover by local attorney Lance Miner as the Judge.

The Two Of Us Productions is well known throughout the Hudson Valley for presenting quality theater, both musicals and dramas. Their recent productions of Sweeney Todd, Cabaret, Young Frankenstein, Deathtrap, Chicago, Les Miserables, next to normal, Mamma Mia! and Jesus Christ Superstar were all recognized by the Theatre Association of NYS with multiple awards, including outstanding work by the company outstanding performance by the orchestra.
