Auditions for "Miss Bennet: Christmas at Pemberley" are scheduled for September 30-October 1, 7 p.m. at Chickasaw Civic Theatre, 801 Iroquois Street, Chickasaw.
Miss Bennet is a romantic comedy, based on characters created by Jane Austen in Pride and Prejudice. The Bennet sisters are gathering for Christmas at Pemberley, the estate of Lizzy’s husband, Mr. Darcy
Authors Lauren Gunderson and Margot Melcon emulated Jane Austen’s witty style in their tale of the middle Bennet sister — bookish, opinionated Mary — as she discovers that the world holds happiness not just for sisters, but also for her.
Cast requirements: 5 women and 3 men, ranging in age from about 17 to about 35. If one of the women were adept at the piano it would be particularly valuable, but is not absolutely necessary.
There are also possible non-speaking roles for two to four additional characters.
At auditions, we will read from the script individually and in groups.
No preparation is necessary.
Show dates are December 7 -9 and 14-16, 2018. For more information, contact Director Nedra Bloom, 251.463.4837 – firstname.lastname@example.org.
