TWELVE ANGRY JURORS
Adapted by Sherman L Sergel
Based on the Emmy Award Winning Television Movie by Reginald Rose
A 19-year-old boy has just stood trial for the fatal stabbing of his father. "He doesn't stand a chance," mutters the guard as the 12 jurors are taken into the jury room. It looks like an open-and-shut case—until one of the jurors begins opening the others' eyes to the facts. "This is a remarkable thing about democracy that we are notified by mail to come down to this place—and decide on the guilt or innocence of a man, of a man we have not known before. We have nothing to gain or lose by our verdict. We should not make it a personal thing." But personal it does become, with each juror revealing his or her own character as the various testimonies are re-examined, the murder is re-enacted and a new murder threat is born before their own eyes! Tempers get short, arguments grow heated, and the jurors become twelve angry people. Running time: 80 minutes with no intermission.
Eric Hartley (Juror 1/Foreman) last appeared at SSR as Tony Reilly in Outside Mullingar in April, and is delighted to be back in the other A month! Additional SSR roles include Dr Kelekian in W;t, Otis in The Last Starfighter, and Sam Byck in Assassins. Eric is also a regular at RCT, playing Uncle Billy in It's a Wonderful Life, Greg in Sylvia, and Frank in Educating Rita, among many, many others. He is highly amused to be revisiting this play with Jag and Boyd, as they all played entirely different jurors in 2019. Go Mariners!
Nicola Amos (Juror 2) is thrilled to return to the SSR where she previously appeared in Brighton Beach Memoirs and Deathtrap. Other theater highlights include Jake's Women (Mount Baker Theatre Rep), Local Colour (Touchstone Theatre), Godspell (EFT), Othello (Kern Shakespeare) and, most recently, Pride and Prejudice and It's a Wonderful Life: A Radio Play (Driftwood Players). Her television/voice-over work includes Murphy's Law, X-Files, Silent Mobius, and Sabrina: The Animated Series. Nicola would like to thank the wonderful creative team, the stellar cast, and her ever-supportive family!
Apostolos Gliarmis (Juror 3) Apostolos is happy to be back on stage with SSR for his second show after Frost/Nixon. He has been working in theater and film for over 15 years and is always looking for the chance to perform. Hope you enjoy the show.
Jag (Juror 4) is delighted to be making his debut at SSR with 12 Angry Jurors. Many thanks to Chris, Mark and Eric for making it happen. Jag has been acting for decades and has worked on both coasts and in Ireland. He has done a few movies, TV shows and commercials and had a long successful career as a commercial print model but his true love is still live theater. When not on stage Jag can be found playing with his pit bull, River, at the beach or in the park. Sending a great big “thank you” to the audience, for coming out to see us. Enjoy the show.

BriAnne also has a love of dance and her adorable puppy "Li'l Miss Teddy", who is no doubt getting into trouble at home alone right now. She wants to thank Juror 10 (her husband) for his support in this adventure, and you patrons for coming out to see the show!
Larry Albert (Judge) Larry is a man of few words and a wonderful voice.
MEET THE PRODUCTION TEAM
Christopher Nardine (Director) Chris began his theater adventures in 1971 with a UConn production of “Man of La Mancha”. He continued to perform, choreograph, direct, teach and produce theater in both the Northeast and Northwest U.S. He started choreographing dances in 1973, and directing theater productions in 1983, and is pleased that over the past few years several of those projects were accomplished at SecondStory Repertory, including 'How To Succeed in Business Without Really Trying', 'Chicago', 'A Little Night Music' and 'Man of La Mancha'. He is thankful once again to work with this company, and with this accomplished cast. Chris earned a B.S. in Music Education and a B.F.A in Music, and worked 33 years in television and corporate video production.
Mark Chenovick (Set Design/Technical Director) has been designing, building, and painting sets since the mid-eighties. Having the fortune to begin his theatrical career under the tutelage of Don McLaughlin in his hometown of Helena Montana, Mark continued his training at the University of Washington where he was accepted into the Graduate Design Seminar his sophomore year. With subsequent degrees in Art History and Drama, Mark went on to serve as technical director/designer for multiple organizations including: Virginia Musical Theatre, Fort Peck Summer Theatre, the Merry-Go-Round Playhouse, Little Theater of the Rockies, and the Norfolk Governor’s School for the Arts. As Technical Director/Production Manager of the national tour of Anything Goes (starring Gloria Loring) Mark travelled around the United States and Canada realizing that there is no place quite as wonderful as the Pacific Northwest. Shortly after the turn of the millennium, and following a brief stint as a carpenter at The Studio Theatre in Washington D.C., he moved back to Seattle. Locally he has worked behind the scenes for the Village Theatre, Seattle Musical Theatre, Redwood Theatre, and, of course, SecondStory Repertory.
Mark Chenovick (Sound Design) I began my sound design journey splicing reel-to-reel tape together in the basement of the original Penthouse Theater on the University of Washington campus but it was my brief time in the MFA program at Utah State University, where I learned the joys of digital sound design, and subsequently, became hooked on sound design for life. Having provided composed and curated underscoring and soundscaping, original and sourced sound effects, and performance amplification services for multiple theaters across the US, I have felt the most at home at SSR. Special thanks to Squolfie, ‘lil Squolf, and my extended family. You are the music of my life. #bandistoohot #sorrynotsorry
Mark Chenovick (Projection/Light Design) has designed projections for over 100 shows in the last ten years. Prior to that he worked with CJS design, a website design and hosting company, developing custom websites for clients ranging from Draper Valley Farms to Seattle Film Group. He also co-created and ran the now defunct SeattleActor.com, a website focused on Seattle area theater, featuring audition listings, helpful articles, and show reviews. In addition to projections, Mark also designs all of the marketing materials you see at SSR including; posters, show graphics, and website. All my love to Jen. Enjoy the show!
