New Date: Eighth Grade Play

March 15th, 2017

When a man is accused of abducting half a dozen cats, it’s a simple open-and-shut case, even for a jury that’s filled with oddballs like a dim-witted PR “maven,” a bickering couple, and a man obsessed with french fries. Although every scrap of evidence indicts the accused, Juror #8–a wannabe lawyer–believes that the “Cat Burglar” is innocent. Will he be able to sway the other jury members? Or will they side with Juror #3–the only sane one in the bunch–in this hilarious parody of 12 Angry Men.
Our Eighth Graders will be performing this hilarious play on Thursday, March 30th at 6:30 PM.
