Pride and Prejudice presented in PAC photo

“Pride and Prejudice” has been a known classic almost since it was initially published in 1813.

A stage adaptation of this timeless story is coming to the Performing Arts Center (PAC) on Tuesday, Feb. 12, at 7:30 p.m.

None other than L.A. Theatre Works will present the live stage show and it is sure to be a stunning treat for all who can attend.

The newly established Mercyhurst Institute for Arts and Culture is credited for bringing this exciting opportunity to the PAC stage.

Christina Calvit has done a wonderful job at reworking this classic comedy for its 200th anniversary debut.

Associate professor of English, Christina Rieger, Ph.D., will be holding a presentation featuring Jane Austen and her beloved “Pride and Prejudice” at 6:30 p.m. The event will take place in Cummings Art Gallery in D’Angelo.

The stunning tale of “Pride and Prejudice” tells the story of love, wit and turn-of-the-century arrogance of the upper class.

Mrs. Bennett is desperate to marry her five daughters to respectable and wealthy suitors. A focus is put into the smart and sassy Elizabeth Bennett and her pairing with Mr. Darcy.

The group of professional actors tours all over the country, including Broadway actors Jane Carr and Nicholas Hormann.

Hormann alone has appeared in countless stage productions and over 60 guest appearances on hit television shows.
