Auditions

Bedford Off Broadway is happy to announce auditions for their Spring show "12 Angry Jurors" adapted by Sherman L Sergel and directed by Jason Crowell.

Auditions will be held Wednesday March 9th at 7pm (till 9-9:30) and Sunday March 13 at 1pm (till 3:30). The show dates are June 10, 11, 12, 17 & 18. Tech week starts on Sunday June 5th. For the first month, rehearsals will be Sunday afternoons and Wednesday nights. Monday nights will be added at some point.

The drama depicts a jury forced to consider a homicide trial. At the beginning, they have a nearly unanimous decision of guilty, with a single dissenter of not-guilty, who throughout the play sows a seed of reasonable doubt. The story begins after closing arguments have been presented in the homicide case, as the judge is giving his instructions to the jury. Auditions will consist of cold readings, monologues are not required but can be performed and should be of a dramatic nature.
