Play portrays jury dilemma

March 7, 2013 by  

Starting this weekend, the Torrance Theatre Company will present the classic drama ‘12 Angry Men’ throughout March.

This contemporary classic follows the jury as it hears the case of a young man accused of murdering his father. One juror is a hold-out and causes the other jurors to begin to question their decisions in the guilt or innocence of the defendant. This all-male cast will have viewers on the edge of their seat waiting for the final verdict in this classic from the 1950s.

It would be no surprise is officials of the theater were to speak to local printing companies in the hope of arranging poster printing to promote the play. Tickets are $25 and the theatre is located at 3031 Torrance Boulevard, Torrance. The performance will run March 9 – 30.

Also this Saturday, March 9, from 9:30 am – 3:00 pm, teachers, parents and engineers will collaborate in a series of workshops to develop engineering activities for local schools. The hands-on training session will be held at Trash for Teaching, 12815 S. Western Ave, Gardena.

The resulting design activities will be taught at local schools in a program lasting three to five weeks in April or May, and will be led by teams of engineers.

Trash for Teaching is an organization that inspires people to see what others overlook. Over the past eight years, the company has diverted more than 50,000 pounds of reusable materials from local manufacturers away from landfills. For more information on this event, call (310) 527-7080.
