May Performances of “PRIDE AND PREJUDICE” Slightly Irreverent and Entirely Fresh
Adapted version of Jane Austen’s tale of love is laugh out loud relatable.
The Platte Valley Players, Brighton’s nationally award-winning community theater, presents Kate Hamill’s adapted version of “Pride and Prejudice” for two consecutive weekends, Friday and Saturday May 6-7 and May 13-14 at the Armory for Performing Arts in Brighton, Colorado. Show times are 7:30pm each night with a matinee at 2:00pm each Saturday.
“Pride and Prejudice” explores the absurdities and thrills of finding the perfect (or imperfect) love of your life. Even if you’re determined not to ever be married, as Lizzy Bennet is, how can you parry the pressure of a society that expects you to conform to its expectations? Particularly when Mr. Darcy, a somewhat handsome, utterly eligible, and nearly always aggravating suitor constantly shows up in your life. This effervescent version of Pride and Prejudice is sure to strike a chord while watching the high stakes game of love play out and the fools we become when we play it.
Tickets for Pride and Prejudice are available through the Platte Valley Players website at www.plattevalleyplayers.org. Tickets are $20 for adults in advance and $22 at the door. Seniors over 65 and juniors under 18 are $18 in advance and $20 at the door.
