interACT Theatre Productions Presents 'Pride & Prejudice'

interACT Theatre Productions presents Pride & Prejudice. The show runs for three weekends, opening this Friday, March 10th, and closing Saturday, March 25th, at the Baird Theatre on Three.

Friday and Saturday evening performances begin at 7:30pm, and the Sunday matinees begins at 4:00pm. Online tickets are discounted at $19 for Adults and $16 for Seniors/Students at www.interactproductions.org/pride.  All tickets purchased at the box office in person are $25, and are available starting an hour before curtain.

Pride & Prejudice is adapted by Jon Jury from the novel by Jane Austen. All of the wit and romance of Jane Austen's classic 1813 novel come to life in this refreshingly fast-paced and engaging new adaptation. Finding a husband is hardly Elizabeth Bennet's most urgent priority. But with four sisters, an overzealous match-making mother, and a string of unsuitable suitors, it's difficult to escape the subject. When the independent-minded Elizabeth meets the handsome but enigmatic Mr. Darcy, she is determined not to let her feelings triumph over her own good sense -- but the truth turns out to be slipperier than it seems. In a society where subtle snubs and deceit proliferate, is it possible for Elizabeth and Darcy to look beyond his pride and her prejudice, and to make the best match of all?

The show is directed by Billy Mitchell, stage managed by George Seylaz, and produced by Nicholas J. Clarey. The cast consists of fourteen talented actors: Don Flynn, Christine Orzepowski, Jessie Thiele, Kara Lawson, Leah de Grachy, Wynn McClenahan, Marlo Avidon, Pierce V. Lo, Theodore Newton, Mateo Moreno, Jessica Albano, Mike Press, Sharon A. Quinn, and Jerry Narciso. Rounding out the crew are scenic designer Conor McCarthy, construction manager Jerry Narciso, lighting designer Zach Pizza, prop mistress Susan Holtz, and costumer Lynne Lewis.

Founded in 2009, interACT has been bringing theater to the community for eight seasons. Closing our season will be Sister Act: The Musical which runs in May.
