lhs 12 Angry Jurors

Guilty or innocent? You be the judge as the story behind this question and more is performed on the Lansing Middle School stage. '12 Angry Jurors', produced by the Lansing High School Drama Club, is based on the award-winning play and movie '12 Angry Men'. The play depicts the life or death struggle of 12 strangers who must decide on the guilt or innocence of a man. With these 12 jurors come 12 different personalities, opinions, and backgrounds -- all of which come into play as they try to decide the fate of a man.

Auditions for '12 Angry Jurors' began the first full week of school, and students at LHS have been working diligently ever since. The cast of '12 Angry Jurors' consists of 13 onstage actors and four crew members. In addition to this, LHS faculty member Chris Finn is lending his voice as the off stage judge. The play showcases the strength of the cast by portraying a character study of each juror, exploring the character background and reasoning behind their decisions in the trial. As a result, the cast has spent a large amount of time preparing for these complex roles.

Béla Fleck (banjo), Zakir Hussain (tabla), and Edgar Meyer (bass) are masterful performers who regularly cross the frontiers of musical genre. The leading virtuosos on their respective instruments, Fleck, Hussain, and Meyer move with ease among the worlds of classical, bluegrass, and North Indian music, creating a fusion that is uniquely their own.

Fleck has transformed the image and the sound of the banjo through a remarkable performing and recording career. Hussain's consistently brilliant performances on the Indian tabla have established him as a national treasure in his own country and earned him worldwide fame. Meyer's mastery of the double bass is rivaled only by his activity as a composer.
