Gonzaga University theater department stages ‘Pride and Prejudice’
the Inland Register
(From the Oct. 22, 2009 edition of the Inland Register)
Gonzaga University Theatre will launch its 2009-2010 season with Jane Austen’s classic love story, Pride and Prejudice, adapted for the stage by British Broadcasting Company writer Marcus Goodwin.
The play follows the amorous adventures of the Bennet sisters, particularly of middle-class Elizabeth Bennet and the aristocrat, Fitzwilliam Darcy. Filled with intrigue, misunderstanding, passion and enduring love, this adaptation will be staged in a highly theatrical style, while remaining true to the novel. Director is Brian C. Russo, Ph.D., associate professor of theatre arts.
Pride and Prejudice opens on Friday, Oct. 23 at 7:30 in the Harry and Colleen Magnuson Theatre, located on the first floor of College Hall, at the east end of the building. Tickets for all students are available for $8; $10 for Gonzaga employees; and $12 for adults.
Performances continue at 2 p.m., Saturday, Oct. 24; at 7:30 p.m., Oct. 29-30; and at a 2 p.m. matinee Nov. 1.
