Twelve Angry Jurors
A 19 year old man has just stood trial for the fatal stabbing of his father, to those in the courtroom it looks like an open-and-shut case. However, one of the jurors is not convinced of the man's guilt and begins opening the others' eyes to the facts. Various testimonies are re-examined and the murder is re-enacted and a new murder threat is born before their eyes. Tempers get short, arguments grow heated, and the juniors become angry. The jurors final verdict and how they reach it will electrify the audience and keep them on the edge of their seats.
A Mickey Christmas
This year's Christmas production, A Mickey Christmas, will feature characters from all different facets and genres of Disney's animated features. This magical journey will take us through the famous Charles Dickens story, A Christmas Carol, in a way that can only be represented through the magic of Disney. Find out if Mickey (Ebenezer Scrooge) will be able to navigate through his past, present, and future to find the joy of Christmas instead of the bother he's found to be! The production will feature three separate casts and crew, with a different High School Theatre class performing each night. Students from dance, choir, and band/percussion classes will also be performing.
The Addams Family features an original story, and it's every father's nightmare. Wednesday Addams, the ultimate princess of darkness, has grown up and fallen in love with a sweet, smart young man from a respectable family - a man her parents have never met. And if that weren't upsetting enough, Wednesday confides in her father and begs him not to tell her mother. Now, Gomez Addams must do something he's never done before - keep a secret from his beloved wife, Morticia. Everything will change for the whole family on the fateful night they host a dinner for Wednsday's 'normal' boyfrend and his parents.
