Shorecrest Drama Presents: Pride and Prejudice

Shorecrest High School Drama will present their production of Pride & Prejudice on November 8-11 and 15-18 at the Shorecrest Performing Arts Center (15343 25th Ave. NE).

Not familiar with the Jane Austen novel? Here's the gist: "The outspoken Elizabeth Bennet faces mounting pressure from her status-conscious mother to secure a suitable marriage. But is marriage suitable for a woman of Elizabeth’s intelligence and independence? Especially when the irritating, aloof, self-involved…tall, vaguely handsome, mildly amusing, and impossibly aristocratic Mr. Darcy keeps popping up at every turn?!" Hamill's adaptation serves up a highly theatrical game of love, infusing Austen's dialogue with fast-paced, screwball, contemporary parlance, and offering a progressive spin on a literary favorite. 
 
Pride and Prejudice will run from Thursday, November 8, through Sunday, November 11, and again the following weekend, Thursday, November 15 through Sunday, November 18. Evening performance times are 7:30 pm on Thursdays-Saturdays; matinees are at 2:00 pm each Sunday
 
Visit Brown Paper Tickets to purchase your tickets. Advanced ticket prices are $12 for adults and $10 for children 12 and under. Ticket are also available at the door for $15.
