REDDING, CA -
This Fall, the Shasta College Theatre Department is excited to announce the production of Aaron Sorkin’s A Few Good Men. Based on events that took place at Guantanamo Bay Naval Base in 1986, A Few Good Men is a legal thriller. The play pits military lawyers against one another in a court martial case -- to uncover a high-level conspiracy resulting in the murder of a United States Marine. In a riveting courtroom drama that investigates the nature of our military and the Marine code of honor, Navy lawyers LCdr. Joanne Galloway and Lt. Daniel Kaffee find themselves asking complex questions of honor, duty, and humanity that demand to be answered. A Few Good Men premiered on Broadway in 1989; a successful film starring Tom Cruise, Demi Moore, and Jack Nicholson was released in 1992.

Performances dates are October 11th, 12th, 17th, 18th, and 19th at 7pm with Sunday matinees on October 13th and 20th at 2pm in the Shasta College Theatre. ASL interpretation will be available on Friday, October 18th.
