Actors wanted for Delta drama

Sidekick Players prepares for fall production of Twelve Angry Men.

The Sidekick Players Club is holding auditions for their fall production of Twelve Angry Men.

Auditions will be held July 11 and 12 from 7-9 p.m. at 1172 56 St. Call backs will be held July 13.

The drama depicts a jury forced to reconsider its nearly unanimous decision by the single dissenter who sows a seed of reasonable doubt. The story begins after closing arguments have been presented in a homicide case, as the judge is giving his instructions to the jury. As in most American criminal cases, the twelve men must unanimously decide on a verdict of guilty or “not guilty. The case at hand pertains to whether a young man murdered his own father. The jury is further instructed that a guilty verdict will be accompanied by a mandatory death sentence. These twelve then move to the jury room, where they begin to become acquainted with the personalities of their peers. Throughout their deliberation, not a single juror calls another by his name because the names are unknown by the jurors. Several of the jurors have different reasons for discriminating against the witness: his race, his background, and the troubled relationship between one juror and his own son.

The classic play will run Oct. 20 to Nov. 5 at the Tsawwassen Arts Centre.

Auditions will be on a first-come, first-served bases with a cold read from the script.  Requirements are 13 men between the ages of 21 to 70’s. One must have a European accent. This is a non-Equity production and all successful actors must become members of The Sidekick Players Club.

Production staff is also required.
