Ninety Students Engaged in "Pride and Prejudice" Production

The Upper School Play Production class, in conjunction with the Upper School Orchestra, is proud to present Jane Austen's Pride and Prejudice, originally adapted for Book-It Repertory Theatre by Marcus Goodwin. The performances take place in the Black Box Theatre, on Feb. 8-10, at 7:00 pm, and Feb. 11, at 2:00 pm.

The production is directed and choreographed by theatre teacher Laura Ferri, featuring music direction by orchestra teacher Jo Nardolillo. Nearly 90 students are contributing to the performance.

Stagecraft students designed, built and painted the set. They also hung, focused, and designed the lights and created the sound design. The Graphics Design class designed the posters advertising the show, and the Advanced Photo class photographed the display of the cast, musicians, and crew. The entire Upper School Orchestra, in rotating shifts, is playing all the music for the show, which includes 10 period dances and many moments of underscoring.

Pre-sale tickets for each showing are sold-out but there will be some tickets available at the door.
