FHS THEATRE DEPARTMENT MEMORABLE EVENTS
12 Angry Jurors Cast Tours Historic Courthouse
The cast of 12 Angry Jurors at Fayetteville High. Oct 24-27. These Theatre Students are amazing with their dedication & talent. This play written in 1957 rings true today with women’s rights, immigration, our justice system and our humanity. Today the cast was invited to tour our historic Washington County courthouse. Our guide Dwight Gonzales gave students an insightful view from inside our court system. He explained the importance of record keeping and history of the structure. The theatre students sat in the jury box, viewed the jury room, admired the historic architecture and realized the solemn, genuine respect for the search for justice. The rehearsal later that afternoon was amazing. Even with line gaps and awkward blocking. The students showed a new depth of understanding. Thanks Washington County and Dwight Gonzales and the friendly folks working at the WCC.
