Travel back to a time of dazzling balls and dashing romance with the Center for Faith and the Arts’ St. Thomas Players’ production of “Pride & Prejudice” opening tonight at Lee Street theatre.
In the midst of the British Regency, the topics of love and money go hand-in-hand as the five Bennet sisters and their vibrant mother search for suitable husbands to inherit Mr. Bennet’s humble estate of Longbourn.
When the daughter most like her father, the witty, intelligent, and highly judgemental Elizabeth Bennet, is introduced to the mysteriously handsome and overwhelmingly stubborn Mr. Darcy, an unconventional romance blossoms. Though the match is obvious, their budding relationship must survive the trials and tribulations of this gossip-strewn English society with jealousy and pride afoot.
The cast features Melanie Brayton as The Author, Chris Eller as Mr. Bennet, Theresa Pitner as Mrs. Bennet, Taylor Ellerbee as Jane, Emma Rose as Elizabeth, Meghann Wood as Mary, Keeley Watson as Kitty, Phoebe Hollingsworth as Lydia, Matthew Jones as Mr. Bingley, Amber Watson as Caroline Bingley, Beth Bentley as Mrs. Hurst and Aunt Gardiner, Jamison Middlemiss as Mr. Hurst and Uncle Gardiner, Matthew Monte as Mr. Darcy, Krissey Browder as Charlotte Lucas, Jacob Brayton as Mr. Collins, Dylan Ellerbee as Mr. Wickham, Lesi Jonap as Lady Catherine, Theresa Brandt as Mrs. Reynolds, and Macy Abramson as Georgiana Darcy. Along with the talents of Claudia Galup as the director, choreography by Debra Hubbard-Pastore, costumes by Nancy Gaines, and set and lighting design by Chris Speer.
Opening night is tonight with performances running July 20-22 and 27-29 at 7:30 p.m. with a matinee at 2:30 p.m. on July 23 at Lee Street theatre, 329 N. Lee St., www.leestreet.org or 704-310-5507.
