Pride and Prejudice, Jane Austen’s classic tale of wit and romance, will come to life in a fast-paced and engaging adaptation this weekend on the stage of St. James High
Mr. and Mrs. Bennet (Morgan Rankin, Derrick Shupe) have five daughters to marry (Cassidy Chapek, Bethany Carlson, Megan Lahti, Rachel Kircher, Jovanna Boeve) and would prefer they find wealthy husbands. When Jane meets charming
Mr. Bingley (Mike Hedlund) and Elizabeth meets Mr. Darcy (Adam Bruton) the merriment and frustration begin. Will the characters be able to look beyond their pride and put aside their prejudices so that love can conquer all?
