Character descriptions:
This cast requires a large ensemble of men and women who are fully integrated.  It is the sum of the parts that make Nuremberg
into the realistic drama it was intended to be.

Col. Parker (prosecutor) - Hard nosed military man and lawyer,

Oscar Rolfe (defense attorney) - soft spoken, proud, patriotic

Frau Bertholt - a survivor, aristocratic, internal pain

Ernst Janning - proud, distinguished,  self loathing, tormented

Rudolf Peterson & Maria Wallner - Key witnesses telling their personal stories under the Nazi regime.

Justices Curtis Ives & Kenneth Norris - opinionated, but with opposite ideals.

Defendants Emil Hahn & Fredrick Hoffstetter- the German Ives and Norris.

Military personnel (dual role)- Capt. Byers/Col. Merrin

Witnesses (Dual roles) - Dr. Wickert/Dr. Geuter

Mrs. Halbestadt - German Housekeeper

Narrator - A woman who keeps the play moving forward.

No monologues necessary.  All cold readings.
Play description:

Two years have passed since the initial trials at Nuremberg where the high ranking Nazi ministers and  

generals were tried and put to death. Now it was time to try the German judges and prosecutors for "crimes 

against humanity" for their involvement in atrocities committed under the Nazi regime.

Judgment at Nuremberg is not merely a story of a court tribunal, but more importantly gives insight into the 

people, Americans and Germans alike, who had been personally affected and how they survived this period of 

degradation.

Performance dates: July 27 + 30 at 2 pm and July 28 + 29 at 7 pm

Play description:

When George, a practicing hypochondriac, overhears his doctor discussing another patient over the phone, 

he mistakenly assumes his own end is near. With the help of his best friend, Arnold, he begins to put his affairs

in order. He writes a farewell letter to his beloved wife, Judy and buys cemetery plots for himself, Judy and 

the new husband he intends to find for her. Judy can't imagine why George is acting so strangely and decides 

that he must be having an affair. Two misunderstandings turn into a delightful comedy. The comedy builds 

when Judy discovers the medical misunderstanding before George and decides to play along. George believes 

he has his final days in control until his doctor returns from a fishing trip and tells George that he is not dying. 

The new husband has been chosen, the plots purchased and the letter delivered - what will he do now?
