Coming Soon

The Trial of Phillip Merryfield

by Peter Burnett

April 12 & 13 at 7:30 pm

Tickets $10, available here and at the door.

The earth has been destroyed in a cataclysm. Only a few people have escaped to form a new colony on the planet Mars, and Phillip Merryfield is on trial for his life – for throwing an old lady out of the spaceship and taking her place. But was he right to do it? The play depicts the court case, allowing the events and motivations to be explored – and the audience plays the role of jury!

Don’t miss this one-act play and a chance to decide Phillip’s fate! This production is the senior project of Nickolas Sturdivant, of Astoria High School, and no stranger to the ASOC stage. This is Nick’s directorial debut, and it’s a fundraiser for Astor Street Opry Company, so come prepared to buy extra votes and support local theater!

It’s a star-studded cast, featuring:

Eliot Adams as Phillip Merryfield
Bob Goldberg as Judge Mr. Bob
Liam McCaughey as The Prosecution
Shailynn Duffy as The Defence
Tim Murphy as Clerk of the Court
Zach Sandoval as Zach
Molly Oien as Jorge
Carmen Boyovich as Sergeant Aloysius
Janice Leber as the Government Official

The production team has Nicholas Sturdivant as director, Jennifer Sturdivant as house manager, Tim Murphy as stage manager, Matt Payne on lights and sound, and Elsa Nethercot as Nick’s senior project mentor and producer.
