Based on the Novel by Jane Austen
Adapted by Jon Jory
ROMANTIC COMEDY All of the wit and romance of Jane Austen’s classic novel comes vividly to life in this fast-paced and engaging new adaptation. In a society where manners and birth mean everything, can independent Elizabeth and handsome Mr. Darcy look beyond their pride and prejudice to find their true and lasting love?

SHALL WE DANCE?
JANE AUSTEN DANCE PARTY TWO SESSIONS
Friday, February 25, 2011 at 6:30 p.m.
Thursday, March 3, 2011 at 5:30 p.m.
$15 for single tickets/$30 for couple
$85: for two tickets to Pride and Prejudice, and dance party, two drinks at show ($110 value)
Learn how to dance Regency style with the choreographer from Pride & Prejudice! This is your chance to charm Mr. Bingley, fall in love with Elizabeth, lavish your partner with affections, or scandalously conduct indiscreet conversations with your friends and neighbors. Shocking!
Choreographer W. Robert Sherry, an excellent beginner friendly instructor, will teach the regency style dances. No experience necessary and no partners required - the custom in the late 1700s was to change partners frequently – canned music, but it’s better than Mary Bennett on the piano. We suggest comfortable dress and shoes you can move in.
Our dance card will fill up quickly, so ask us to dance today!
