“It is a truth universally acknowledged, that a single man in possession of a good fortune, must be in want of a wife.”
Elizabeth Bennet & Mr. Darcy have a date – with destiny, as Jane Austen’s most popular novel comes to life on stage in the ACMA Theatre Company’s production of Pride and Prejudice. This quick paced production, adapted and staged by David Sikking (recipient of the Beaverton Arts Commission’s Outstanding Art Instructor Award) faithfully relishes the language Jane Austen penned for this witty romantic comedy.
Take a turn in this classic dance of courtship, class, and romantic transformation as Mrs. Bennet (McKenzie Mitchell) hotly pursues husbands for each of her five daughters, including: lovely Jane (Genevive Adams), witty Elizabeth (Ally Merkel), bookish Mary, (Emma Younger), and the soldier-obsessed Kitty & Lydia (Jayden Peterson and Nina Mathieu).
Guest Artist Sherry Ostendorf (The Great Gatsby) returns to design and create stunning Regency Era costumes. And choreographer Liora Lahav puts the cast through their paces with English Country dances that will take you back into the great estates and halls of Longbourn aristocracy.
