May Performances of “PRIDE AND PREJUDICE” Slightly Irreverent and Entirely Fresh

Posted on April 2, 2022 by

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.

“Kate Hamill’s adaptation of Pride and Prejudice is more controlled chaos than it is a staid 1800’s love lesson. We’re really having fun with the cast who have embraced the spirited antics of the script that I think will surprise and delight the audience”, said Kelly Van Oosbree, Artistic Director for the Platte Valley Players. “We have a wonderfully talented group of actors led by first time PVP director Victoria Holloway, fresh from her successful staging of Nunsense for Performance Now Theater Company. Be prepared to have a lot of fun as six of the eight actors play multiple roles. It’s a great show!”

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.

The Platte Valley Players are thankful for funding partnerships of the Colorado Creative Industries, The SCFD Fund, the City of Brighton’s Lodging Tax Grant along with the support of many local businesses who sustain live performing arts.
