Elora Community Theatre performs Pride and Prejudice

FERGUS – The Elora Community Theatre is to host six performances of Pride and Prejudice at the Fergus Grand Theatre next month

“Lots of laughter with this comedy filled with excitement, confusion, conflict, duty, and romance as the frantic ‘mama’ races to marry off her five daughters,” officials state in a press release. 

Was ever a mother as put upon as Mrs. Bennet? 

Surrounded by four sisters, a dithering but determined match-making mother and a beloved, long-suffering father, Elizabeth Bennet is one of literature’s most cherished heroines. 

Directors Deb Stanson and David Tanner bring to life the beloved tale of the independent-minded Elizabeth Bennet and the enigmatic Mr. Darcy as they navigate social expectations and pre-conceived notions and discover the pride of one and the prejudice of the other. 

Set in England in the early 1800s, the comedy and irresistible romance of Jane Austen’s masterpiece has won generations of fans with over 20 million copies of Pride and Prejudice sold worldwide. 

Now, see it come to life on stage with a lively adaption by Jane Kendall.

Shows starting next month

The play will be performed on May 3, 4, 5, 10, 11 and 12, with shows starting at 8pm, on Fridays, 2pm and 8pm on Saturdays, and 2pm on Sundays.  

Tickets are available at the Fergus Grand Theatre box office fergusgrandtheatre.ca
