Ajo’s Community Players have done it again. Yup, their latest play — Contempt of Court — was a fun-filled romp through the legal system. In addition to the great entertainment the audience also enjoyed a full-course meal courtesy of the Oasis Cafe.
Each member of the audience received a Jury Summons and a ballot for each of the three cases to be tried in court that evening.
The lawyers? Sydney Schyster and Melissa Cheatham. A credit to the legal profession :-).
Court bailiff Duke Mondhill cautions the new court stenographer to keep detailed notes of the testimony.
A musical number — “Blame the Lawyers” — broke out in the courtroom.
Nurse Olga is called to testify in the case of Children of FW Rockworth vs Estate of FW Rockworth. She wouldn’t lie on the stand. Would she?
Cross-examining the witness.
Howard Costar, color commentator, interviewed members of the court and the jury to ascertain how the cases went.
So, ma’am, who da think presented the best arguments?
Bravo, all! A wonderful evening’s entertainment.
