The Night of January 16th is opening at Immanuel High School in Reedley on April 21. The Night of January 16th is a courtroom drama that is being produced by Mr. Rick Robbins and the Immanuel High Drama Class.

The show is placed in a 1930s courtroom in New York, New York. Bjorn Faulkner’s unexpected death has shocked the world and sent millions of investors into financial loss from the Crash of his business. What caused his death. Suicide? Or was it murder?

Karen Andre as portrayed by Alex York was Bjorn’s lover and one time secretary, that is before Bjorn fired her. The prosecution will try to convince you that Bjorn’s firing of Miss Andre pushed her over the edge, even to the prospect of murder.

When you come into the theater, you will be asked to put your name on a Jury Summons (if you wish to) and you could be chosen to be on the panel of jurors who will decide the outcome of the case. Karen Andre’s fate rests in your hands, you will make your decision off more than a dozen witness testimonies ranging from Bjorn’s wife Nancy to a late gangster’s wife, who is also a “terpsichorean.”

As The Night of January 16th opens Sunday April 21st at 3 p.m., which will you choose? Guilty or Not Guilty?

The show starts on the 21st at 3 p.m. and ends it run on the 28th at 7 p.m. Please come out and support Immanuel Theatre! More details can be found on their KRL event page.
