     Over the last few seasons The Cherry Creek Theatre has become a serious contender with its awesome productions in the Shaver- Ramsey Showroom.
     Its current offering is “Twelve Angry Men.” This classic courtroom drama is a riveting evening of theatre and you owe it to yourself to get over and see what all the fuss is about.
     Bernie Cardell has directed this piece with a deft hand and a pacing that will quicken your pulse. Having cast the show impeccably, theatergoers are treated to the most intimate viewing of what goes on with a jury behind locked doors that they may ever see.
         Older theatergoers may remember that the movie starring Henry Fonda was all about a jury deciding whether a young man is guilty or not guilty of murdering his father.
        Erik Sandvold turns in a stunning performance in the role of a man who has grave doubts as to whether the accused is indeed guilty. Mr. Sandvold stands out in this very fine cast in a magnificent performance.
        Jude Moran’s portrayal of juror #3 sets the room on fire! Mr. Moran has always been good at communicating emotion while onstage but this time he is outstanding! Moran is Denver’s answer to Al Pacino.
       Ken Street adds fuel to this fiery production with his performance as Juror #10
      Co-founder and chairman of the board, Mark Rossman appears as the guard.

     There are new faces and old in this male-driven production. Among the ones you will know are these very fine artists: James O’Hagen-Murphy, Todd Black, Kevin Lowry, Brock Benson and Claude Diener.
