TWELVE ANGRY MEN - HAMILTON FAMILY THEATRE
Aug 07, 2019 2:00 PM Aug 24, 2019 7:00 PM
Twelve Angry Men A Riveting Courtroom Drama
By Reginald Rose
Adapted by Sherman Sergel
The life of a young man hangs in the balance as one of the most gripping stories of all time unfolds on stage.

On a hot and humid summer day, twelve men sequestered in a room must decide whether an inner-city teen is guilty of the murder of his father, thereby sentencing the young defendant to death.

It looks like an open-and-shut case, but as the dozen men try to reach a unanimous decision, Juror #8 plants the seed of reasonable doubt, thereby preventing a quick verdict … much to the chagrin of his eleven colleagues. Tempers get short, arguments grow heated, and conflict threatens to derail the delicate judicial process as twelve angry men from all strata of society revisit the evidence, and confront each other's personal biases.

A testament to the complicated quest for justice, this profoundly relevant classic is at once clever, dramatic, and deeply compelling.

MOVIE MONDAY - A MIDSUMMER NIGHT'S DREAM
Aug 26, 2019 6:30 PM Aug 26, 2019 8:20 PM
A Midsummer Night’s Dream (2017), not rated

The story takes place in present day Hollywood - a place where glamorous stars, commanding moguls, starving artists and vaulting pretenders all vie to get ahead. In the tradition of Baz Luhrmann's rapturous re-imagining of Romeo + Juliet, this modern vision breathes new life into a classic tale. Combined with a cast of established and emerging stars, as well as a pulsing original soundtrack, the film will appeal to ardent fans of the Bard as well as audiences discovering Shakespeare for the first time.

Her hard knock life takes an unexpected turn when the plucky redhead is chosen to spend a fairy tale holiday with famous billionaire industrialist, Oliver Warbucks.

With its Tony Award®-winning book and score, including the memorable songs “Hard Knock Life,” “Easy Street,” “I Don’t Need Anything But You,” and the uplifting anthem “Tomorrow,” we bet your bottom dollar you'll love it!
