Synopsis:

Set sail for laughter in Jeeves at Sea as Bertie Wooster revels in life aboard the Vanderley yacht. Bertie is the pampered guest of the lively Lady Stella (very fetching profile), accompanied, as always, by his peerless valet, Jeeves. If only Bertie's pal Crumpet hadn't assaulted a prince. In the blink of an eye, Bertie is masquerading as a romance novelist, Crumpet's posing as his own long-lost twin, and a sinister foreign count is challenging Bertie to a duel. Will this madcap case of mistaken identities end in Bertie's doom--or worse, his marriage? Have no fear; Jeeves will sort it all out.

About “Twelve Angry Jurors"

A young man faces the death penalty for murdering his father. A jury has heard the evidence, and must now decide if this person is guilty or innocent. Whether he lives or dies.

The decision appears to be a no-brainer. All of the evidence points to his guilt. This jury is ready to convict him right now, and go home. Well, almost all of the jury. Yep, there’s that one guy who just can’t go along with the crowd. He’s got one thing in his mind holding him back... reasonable doubt.

This play is based on a CBS teleplay from 1954 called 12 Angry Men. In 1957, the show was adapted as a feature film, directed by Sidney Lumet and starring Henry Fonda, Lee J. Cobb, Ed Begley, E. G. Marshall, and Jack Warden. It was nominated for three Oscars, including Best Picture, Best Director, and Best Screenplay. Since then, its stage adaptation has run on Broadway and has had several revivals. It won Tony and Drama Desk Awards for Best Revival, Best Actor, and Best Direction.

The entire drama takes place in the jury room. Nobody goes home until there is a unanimous verdict.

 

 

 

Casting Notes

The lead role in this play is Juror #8. Additional lead roles include Jurors #3, 4, 7 and 10. These roles are the most demanding characters and have the largest number of lines to memorize.

 

The Guard or bailiff, has a minor role during the play itself, but will deliver a pre-show monologue to warm up the audience.

 

Other jurors have smaller, but still very important roles, which may be suitable for actors with less stage experience.

 

Please download and read over the “Cast of Characters” document which describes each role in detail. The full script is also available for download, and we encourage all auditioners to read it in full before making your audition. We have also posted dialog sides, which you will be reading in groups with one or two other actors. Because this is a large ensemble cast, you may be asked to read for roles other than the ones you may prefer.

 

It is not necessary for you to memorize the sides for the audition, but please come with a good understanding of your character and his or her motivations/intentions.

 

Also, please download the audition form, fill it out and bring it with you to the audition.
