Judy Russell Presents 12 Angry Men(Jurors)

MAY 4-6, 2018: JUDY RUSSELL PRESENTS 12 ANGRY MEN(JURORS)

 

‘Judy Russell Presents’ brings together a host of local arts leaders and actors for its second production of the year: 12 Angry Men( Jurors) by Reginald Rose, adapted by Sherman L. Shergel. Alumni from Judy Russell Presents, Excalibur Theatre Arts Co., Shooting Stars Theatre, Pocket Theatre, Theatre Northwest, and more, make up the stellar cast of 12 Angry Men (Jurors) which will be playing at the Prince George Playhouse May 4-6, 2018. 12 Angry Men (Jurors) directly follows the plot of 12 Angry Men, with a handful of roles filled by exceptional female talent. 12 Angry Men (Jurors) is directed by Anna Russell and features David Leach (Excalibur Theatre Arts Co.) as Juror 8, Sandra Clermont (Judy Russell Presents: Cabaret, Hello Dolly, Sound of Music) as Juror 3 and Melissa Glover (Shooting Stars Theatre & Theatre Northwest) as Juror 10. Additional cast includes: Adam Harasimiuk, Katherine Trepanier & Tracy Summerville. An examination of the North American people and the judicial system that keeps them in check, 12 Angry Men (Jurors) centres on Juror 8 who is, at first, the sole holdout in an 11-1 guilty vote. He aims, not to prove the other jurors wrong, but rather encourages them to abandon their personal biases and see the case for what it is. After the teleplay aired in 1954 it rose to critical acclaim and was adapted by the Playwright, Reginald Rose into a film starring Henry Fonda in 1957. The show holds particular cultural significance in 2018 with the recent court cases of Fribjon Bjornson, Colton Boushie and Tina Fontaine.

Tickets are available now online at centralinteriortickets.com.

Five Alarm Funk ON SALE NOW!

Five Alarm Funk will be performing June 21, 2018 at the Prince George Legion Branch 43.

Visit our tickets page for more information!

Some bands want to change the world. Five Alarm Funk’s goal is much simpler.
They want you to sweat.
That’s been the idea since the first time drummer Tayo Branston, guitarist Gabe
Boothroyd and the original Five Alarm bassist Neil Towers met at a Vancouver house
party in 2003. Since that night, the temperature in their leafy green hometown began to
rise. Other musicians started showing up to jam. The parties led to gigs locally, which
led a few years later to grinding bus tours across Canada and into the States. The
crowds grew. The grooves burned. A horn section jumped onboard to punch the beat
harder. Percussion cranked it up even more. EPs and albums followed, as studios and
gear melted down from the sheer intensity these guys unleashed.
