12 Angry Jurors – Centrestage Youth Theatre

Our Youth Theatre is also back with their second production for the year with 12 Angry Jurors. They have made this production their own and are sure to provide a great night of entertainment.

Following the closing arguments in a murder trial, the 12 members of the jury must deliberate, with a guilty verdict meaning death for the accused, an inner-city teen.

As the dozen jury members try to reach a unanimous decision while sequestered in a room, one juror casts considerable doubt on elements of the case. Personal issues soon rise to the surface, and conflict threatens to derail the delicate process that will decide one boy’s fate.

All tickets are $15 each.  Showing 10th to 20th July.

  • I saw 'The Vicar Of Dibley' in Dec 2016 - twice! Absolutely loved it. The cast were perfect - from the way they looked visually to the way they spoke audibly. The sets looked amazing, too.Such a terrific show! Such a terrific show!

  • This theatre is a gem at the foothills of The Dandenongs. The productions are excellent and the pre show drinks and post show supper are a treat.

  • I brought a girlfriend along as I had been told by some friends how good the performance was. We were not disappointed, it was funny, the sound was very good, our seats were in the gallery and we could see the stage very well. Could not get over the complimentary supper and drinks - this is a credit to the 1812 theatre/volunteers, heard lots of people as we mingled saying the same.

  • We always have dinner at the Royal beforehand, then stroll up to the theatre. It feels like being part of a huge family when we enter the doors. The welcoming smiles, not only from 1812 staff but the theatregoers as well, always lifts the spirits and our enthusiasm for the play we are about to be presented with.
