Welcome back all of your fan favorite characters from “Pride and Prejudice” as ECTC presents the second main stage offering of its seventh season, “Miss Bennet: Christmas at Pemberley.”
The performance runs Thursday, Dec. 12 (opening night) through Saturday, Dec. 22, and will be staged at ECTC’s performance space located at 560 Grand Boulevard (upstairs) in Grand Boulevard at Sandestin in Miramar Beach, Florida.
The imagined sequel to “Pride and Prejudice” was adapted for stage by Lauren Gunderson (the most produced living playwright in America) and Margot Melcon, who thought up the play in 2013 during a six-hour road-trip together and outlined the plot on Starbucks napkins.
ECTC producing artistic director Nathanael Fisher directs this romantic holiday comedy that tells the story of Mary Bennet, the bookish and oft-forgotten middle child, who has her quest for independence sparked by an unlikely visitor. This production honors the legacy of Jane Austen’s humor, playfulness and wit and simultaneously explores the complexities of family and love.
Set and lighting design for this production is by Rebeca Lake. Costumes courtesy of Glen Breed with Wardrobe Witchery and styled by ECTC co-founder and associate producer Anna Fisher. Stage management is by Phillip Padgett.
