Traditional festival invites audiences to sing

By Faith Elder - Staff Reporter



A 60-year-old play has a sto- ry and message pertinent to to- day.

Written by Reginald Rose in 1954, Twelve Angry Men is a classic play that centers around 12 jurors who must decide if a 19-year-old Puerto Rican man is guilty of murdering his father.

"It's important today because it deals with racism and stereo- types," said Director Bill Huls.

Huls chose to do the play be- cause of its signi cance.

"I try to do a show every year that deals with true life and the challenges of choice and life" said Huls.

"I chose this play because it's actually a well-done story. It's not done very often," he added.

Huls wanted to direct the original play and not one of the variations like Twelve Angry Men and Women.

"I wanted to set it in 1954. I was very adamant to do it the original way," he said.

This play offered several challenges to Huls.

"One of the challenges I saw was nding 12 men that I thought worked well together," he said.

Another challenge is the blocking, how the characters move, in the play, said Huls.

"I have been working on the play for eight months and we started rehearsal a week ago," he said.

Huls also has hopes for the audience once they watch the play.

"I hope that they're enter- tained and come away with a 'do' energy about change in life," he said.

The show will play at the Renton Civic Theatre from April 5 to 20 with 10 shows. Tickets are $21 for seniors and $26 for adults and can be purchased at https://bit.ly/2HslDGG.
