Possum Point Players Trustees decided to adjust the dates of the two shows in the interest of safety to audience members as well as to cast and all other volunteers involved in productions.

The season opening show, "12 Angry Jurors," is a classic study in behavioral dynamics as twelve strangers are drawn together as jury members. They are tasked with the huge responsibility of deciding for conviction or acquittal of a young adult defendant on the basis of reasonable doubt. Originally written as a television drama, the jury must decide whether a young defendant is guilty of murdering his father. In its transition from a television drama written in the 50s to motion pictures to a stage play, "12 Angry Jurors" has maintained its relevance and intensity.

Taken from the original teleplay written by Reginal Rose, the stage play is written by Sherman L. Sergel. West Fenwick Island resident, Les Ferguson is the director of this drama.

Cast members representing ten different communities come together in the Possums' staging of "12 Angry Jurors." John Zinzi and Leah Toomey are from Milton, and Cheryl Graves, Steve Givens and Steven Perry are from Rehoboth Beach. Donna de Kuyper and Dick Pack are Lewes residents, Patrick Cassidy lives in Bethany Beach and Chuck Rafferty lives in Laurel. Don Megee and Claudius Bowden are Georgetown residents and Matt Hatfield lives in Salisbury, MD. Monica McNee is from Dagsboro, and John Csicsek is from West Fenwick Island.
