Miss Bennet: Christmas at Pemberley
November 21 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm$25 – $52
The favor of your presence is requested at Taproot Theatre as Jane Austen’s beloved characters from Pride and Prejudice return for the new romantic holiday treat Miss Bennet: Christmas at Pemberley. This charming new Christmas play by Lauren Gunderson and Margot Melcon can be seen November 21 – December 29 on Taproot Theatre’s Jewell Mainstage.
In this witty sequel to Pride and Prejudice, bookish middle-sister Mary pounds her pianoforte alone until a curious visitor drops hints of being her intellectual match. Seizing the opportunity to be the heroine of her own story, Mary pursues her equal. This funny, smart and romantic comedy makes for a most stylish holiday outing.
