It’s a hot summer day and a 19-year-old man is on trial accused of murdering his own father. It has been a long trial and it’s now time to vote. The jury votes 11 to 1 that the young man is guilty, but laws in the United States require a unanimous vote from the 12 jurors to find someone guilty of a capital offense. Tempers flare as the eleven jurors try to convince the one dissenter to come around to their side. As the evidence is re-examined, however, new uncertainties come to light forcing everyone to question if there is, in fact, some measure of “reasonable doubt.”
Twelve Angry Men is a heightened courtroom drama that puts the audience on the edge of their seats while exploring what it means to live in a democracy.
Twelve Angry Men will be produced in Sun Lakes as Twelve Angry Jurors allowing the mixed gender cast to reflect the reality of today’s juries. Directed by Howard Hummel, the play opens November 7 in the San Tan ballroom and will close November 11.
Tickets will go on sale Oct 17 at Sun Lakes locations to be announced, and online at this website.

SLCT’s Annual Theater Student Scholarship Winner
On April 10, Sun Lakes Community Theatre presented their annual Theatre Arts Scholarship to Greyson Smith from Hamilton High School.

Greyson has experience as a theatre director, music director, choreographer, scenic and technical director as well as an actor, singer and piano player. He has won numerous awards which include best male lead in a musical awarded by ASU for Shrek, the Musical and Legally Blonde. Greyson has also won the National Youth Arts award for his performance as the best male lead in School of Rock. SLCT is proud to support the drama programs of all the high schools in the Chandler Unified School District. In 2017, SLCT donated $750 to each of the Chandler high schools.
We urge the entire Sun Lakes community to support the drama programs of the Chandler Unified School District high schools by attending their theatre productions. Also, we encourage new SLCT residents to join our Sun Lakes theatre organization, attend our monthly fun meetings and purchase tickets to enjoy SLCT productions. In this way, you will help us continue to support local theatre productions and theatre arts education throughout our communities.
