The action is set in Truvy’s beauty salon in Chinaquapin, Louisiana, where all the ladies
who are ―anybody‖ come to have their hair done. Helped by her eager new assistant,
Annelle (who is not sure whether or not she is still married,) the outspoken, wise-
cracking Truvy dispenses shampoos and free advice to the town’s rich curmudgeon,
Ouiser, (―I’m not crazy, I’ve just been in a bad mood for forty years)’ an eccentric
millionaire, Miss Clairee, who has a raging sweet tooth; and the local social leader,
M’Lynn, whose daughter Shelby (the prettiest girl in town,) is about to marry a ―good ole
boy.‖ Filled with hilarious repartee and not a few acerbic but humorously revealing
verbal collisions, the play moves toward tragedy when, in the second act, the spunky
Shelby (who is a diabetic) ricks pregnancy and forfeits her life. The sudden realization of
their mortality affects the others, but also draws on the underlying strength—and love—
which give the play, and its characters, the special quality to make them truly touching,
funny and marvelously amiable company in good times and bad.

Wrap this musical in gold paper with spangles all over it and attach a card saying ―Merry
Christmas!‖ Remember the wonderful Victor Herbert music? Remember the lyrics: ―Toyland,
toyland, little girl and boy land‖? Wonderful roles for many actors including Mary, Mary Quite
Contrary; Tom-Tom, the Piper’s Son; Jack and Jill; Little Miss Muffet; Wicked Uncle Barnaby
who runs the toy shop (and his comic-ruffian assistants, Roderigo and Gonzorgo) and can turn
children into dolls and sell them for gold; and lovable Jane and Alan who are his next victims.
The adaptation uses the original music of Victor Herbert and much of Glen McDonough’s libretto
and lyrics.

Adapted by Sherman Sergel and based on the Emmy-Award winning television movie by
Reginald Rose

Produced by special arrangement with The Dramatic Publishing Company of Woodstock,

January 29, 30, 31 and February 5, 6, 7, 2010

A 19-year-old man has just stood trial for the fatal stabbing of his father. "He doesn't
stand a chance," mutters the guard as the 12 jurors are taken into the bleak jury room. It
looks like an open-and-shut case—until one of the jurors begins opening the others' eyes
to the facts. "This is a remarkable thing about democracy," says the foreign-born juror,
"that we are notified by mail to come down to this place—and decide on the guilt or
innocence of a man; of a man we have not known before. We have nothing to gain or lose
by our verdict. We should not make it a personal thing." But personal it does become,
with each juror revealing his own character as the various testimonies are re-examined,
the murder is re-enacted and a new murder threat is born before their eyes! Tempers get
short, arguments grow heated, and the jurors become 12 angry men. The jurors' final
verdict and how they reach it—in tense scenes that will electrify you and keep you on the
edge of your seat—add up to a fine, mature piece of dramatic literature.
