Pride and Prejudice  
August 11, 13, 17, 19, 25

Pride and Prejudice is a streamlined theatrical version of Jane Austen’s classic novel involving manners, courtship and relationships. When the independent-minded Elizabeth meets the handsome but enigmatic Mr. Darcy, all feelings of attraction are muted by his pride and her prejudice. 

A Midsummer Night’s Dream
August 12, 18, 20, 26, 27

On a Midsummer’s night, four young lovers find themselves wrapped in the dream-like arms of an enchanted forest where sprites lurk and fairies rule. While a feuding Fairy King and Queen are at war, their paths are crossed by Bottom, Quince and their friends presenting a play within a play. Rated PG.

Practice Sessions
The public may attend dress rehearsal sessions on August 9 for Pride and Prejudice and on August 10 for A Midsummer’s Night’s Dream. No tickets are required for those events. These sessions are ‘Pay-What-You-Can’, meaning that you can pay any amount (even as low as $1) and you can see both shows.
