Actors wanted for Delta drama

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.
