Newton, NC – In just a little more than two weeks, you’ll hear the judge say, “It’s now your duty to sit down and try and separate the facts from the fancy,” as you watch our next production, Twelve Angry Jurors. Performances are scheduled for October 12, 13, 19 and 20 at 7:30pm, and October 14 and 21 at 3pm, at the Old 1924 Courthouse in Historic Downtown Newton. This show is being produced by Corning Optical Communications & von Drehle Corporation.
Originally scripted as 12 Angry Men in 1954, 12 Angry Jurors is widely acknowledged to be one of the greatest courtroom dramas of all time. Centered around the U.S. judicial system, 12 Angry Jurors tells the story of a single juror holding the rest of the jury from a guilty verdict in a murder trial as he sets his sights on getting the others to look at the situation in an objective, unbiased way. What develops is a picture of America at its best, and its worst.
Since this show takes place in a courthouse, we are partnering with the Catawba County Historical Association to present all six performances in the Old 1924 Courthouse in downtown Newton. Due to the change in venue, this show will have general seating. You will pick up tickets before the show at the Courthouse instead of at the theatre.
You can reserve your seats by calling the Box Office at 828-464-6128. Box Office hours are Wednesday through Friday, 10am-5:30pm. Ticket prices are $18 for Adults, $16 for Seniors (60+), $14 for Students (13+), and $8 for children age 12 and under. All ticket prices include NC sales tax. You may also purchase tickets at the door one hour before the show if seating is still available. If you have any questions, please call The Green Room Community Theatre at (828) 464-6583 or visit our website: www.thegreenroomtheatre.org.
The Green Room Community Theatre is a funded affiliate of the United Arts Council of Catawba County.
