Auditions: Sept 10 & 12

Watch Elizabeth Bennet and Mr. Darcy fall in love all over again — this time filtered through the world of the internet. Modern voices interject and build on this classic love story in the form of blog posts, chat room discussions, quotes from film adaptations, and even letters from Ms. Austen herself to create a delightfully postmodern view of 19th century England. Written for five actors to play every role, Pride@Prejudice is a hilarious and moving homage to Jane Austen’s most beloved novel, as well our love affair with reading.

Available Roles:

Actress A: 20s-30s: Elizabeth Bennet

Actress B: 20s-40s: Jane Bennet, Caroline Bingley, Lydia, Mary, Lady Catherine, Georgiana, Jane Austen

Actress C: 30s-50s: Mrs. Bennet, Charlotte, Mrs. Gardiner, Miss De Bourgh 

Actor A: 20s-30s: Mr. Darcy, Mr. Collins

Actor B: 30s-50s: Mr. Bennet, Mr. Bingley, Sir William, Footman, Doctor, Mr. Wickham, Mr. Gardiner, Colonel Fitzwilliam

Performers are expected to be able to switch between roles quickly, using as little as an adjustment of posture, voice, or attitude to distinguish one character from another. 

English accents are welcome, but at a minimum formal, American speech in required.
