ZANESVILLE, Ohio – Today, was the last show day for Zane Trace Player’s show, 12 Angry Men.
The Zane Trace Players played at the Renner Theater, showcasing their talent in the well-known play. 12 Angry Men is a drama play following the arguments in a murder trial, with twelve members of the jury deliberating over the fate of a boy.
“I was very passionate about bringing it back. It’s a classic, most people have seen the movie, but not very many have seen the actual play. And I thought in today’s times with the dynamics of our country and what’s been going on. A lot of the conversations that come about on stage are what we’re talking about in today’s society,” said Director of 12 Angry Men, Stacy Clawson.
The Players have been preparing for the show since October. Zane Trace Players is a non profit organization, with all participants in the show dedicating their love and passion for theater and the performing arts.
“None of us get paid. We do this because we love theater, and we love working together. It was a classic story. We just basically work together and hammered it out. And pushed through any kind of struggles that we have. We’re just really pleased with the turn out, and that the community supports us,” said Clawson.
The Zane Trace Players’ next show will be Shrek The Musical coming in March.
