Auditions: Pride and Prejudice at Ivy Players

December 16, 2017
10:00 amto1:00 pm

OPEN AUDITIONS: Ivy Players theatre production of Jane Austen classic Pride and Prejudice: A romantic comedy Adaptation by Jon Jory.

All of the wit and romance of Jane Austen’s classic 1813 novel come to life in this refreshingly fast-paced and engaging new adaptation. Finding a husband is hardly Elizabeth Bennet’s most urgent priority. But with four sisters, an overzealous match-making mother, and a string of unsuitable suitors, it’s difficult to escape the subject. When the independent-minded Elizabeth meets the handsome but enigmatic Mr. Darcy, she is determined not to let her feelings triumph over her own good sense — but the truth turns out to be slipperier than it seems. In a society where subtle snubs and deceit proliferate, is it possible for Elizabeth and Darcy to look beyond his pride and her prejudice, and to make the best match of all?

Auditions, rehearsals and performances will be held at Le Grand Playhouse, Community Theatre at 16275 Grand Ave, Lake Elsinore, California. Located 15 min south of Corona,15 min north of Temecula near the Ortega Highway entrance.
