Welcome back all of your fan-favorite characters from “Pride and Prejudice” as Emerald Coast Theatre Company 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 the 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.
″This is a wonderful opportunity for all generations of the family to come together and celebrate the holiday season,” said ECTC co-founder and producing artistic director Nathanael Fisher. “Wit, humor, intrigue, and charm are all abundant in this script. It will be the perfect holiday outing.”
Tickets are $32 per person for adults; $30 for seniors (55 years old and up) and military and $28 for students (must show ID).
