Here’s a behind-the-scenes sneak peek at Twelve Angry Jurors, the BHS fall play coming this weekend. And a fun fact about this timeless story: all actors remain on the stage for the entirety of the play in this intense and thought-provoking story.
Bedford High School Performing Arts presents their Fall production of Twelve Angry Jurors, a gripping courtroom drama set in the present day.
Following the closing arguments in a murder trial, the dozen members of the jury must deliberate, with a guilty verdict meaning death for the accused, an inner-city person of color. As the twelve jurors try to reach a unanimous decision while sequestered in a room, one juror casts considerable doubt on elements of the case.
Differing personal beliefs and conflicts quickly arise, threatening to derail the delicate process that will decide one boy’s fate.
Bedford High School has an inbound exchange student this year, Gabriel Imhoff, and the Rotary Club of Bedford is looking for two more families to host him between December and graduation in June.

Where would you like to see effort to combat climate change focused in our community?
The 40-50 attendees at the October 29, 2019 event, Climate Change in Bedford: Impact and Response brainstormed answers to that question at an event co-sponsored by Bedford’s Energy & Sustainability Committee and Bedford’s Mothers Out Front (whose mission is to build power as mothers to ensure a livable climate for all children).
Three town employees shared a wealth of information about climate science, mosquito/tick-related safety, and what the town is doing to prepare for the future.
Gabriel Imhoff has always been interested in new cultures and languages. After visiting Florida with his family in 9th grade, he began to imagine what it would be like to live in the United States.
Many of his friends in Brazil had participated in exchange programs and he became intrigued; he watched videos about exchange students and began toying with the idea that he could live abroad himself.
