When meek and modest floral assistant Seymour Krelborn stumbles upon a new breed of plant, he is in for the surprise of his life! Only after dubbing the new flora Audrey II – in tribute his co-worker crush – does he discover the plant’s insatiable appetite… for blood, and eventually global domination! A deviously hilarious mash-up of sci-fi, horror, comedy, and rock-n-roll, this classically cheeky musical has devoured the hearts of theatre-goers for over 30 years.

A young man of ethnic descent is on trial for murder. If found guilty by a panel of twelve jurors, the verdict will result in a mandatory death sentence.  Initially, all but one juror thinks the young man’s guilt is obvious. Personal differences divide the group and continue to escalate as the deliberations continue.  Soon the clarity of evidence and the very nature of a “fair trial” are called into question.  With additional use of filmic flashbacks, this tension-packed rendition of a classic play exposes an age-old problem, the unreliability of perception.  A poignant and timely production, Twelve Angry Jurors calls into question the prejudice and personal beliefs of the jurors and audiences alike.
