This February, the award-winning Woodinville High School Theatre Company will bring the most beloved, classic Jane Austin novel Pride and Prejudice to the stage of the WHS Theater. This adaptation mixes classic and modern elements to create a humorous, madcap evening of Regency theatre for our audience. The show will run February 4, 5, 10 and 11 at 7:00 pm, in the Woodinville High School Theater – delivering a timeless story of love and goodness!
Pride and Prejudice is a tale of love and values that unfolds in the class-conscious England of the late eighteenth century. The five Bennet sisters - including strong-willed Elizabeth, serious and thoughtful Jane, and young and frivolous Lydia - have been raised by their mother with one purpose in life: finding a husband. When a wealthy bachelor takes up residence in a nearby mansion, the Bennets are abuzz. There will undoubtedly be no shortage of suitors among the man's sophisticated circle of friends for the Bennet sisters. But when Elizabeth meets up with the handsome and - it would seem - snobbish Mr. Darcy, the battle of the sexes is joined.
The cast of this production comprises 22 of Woodinville High School Theatre Company's students, including seniors Aidan Robb, Allison Calhoon, Carolyn Dunbar, David Fountain, Kasey Christie, Maggie Mus, Jacob Price, Georgia Willis, and Pedro Cunha.
Many of the technical aspects of the show, everything from set building and sound to publicity, are handled by crews of students from the WHS Technical Theatre program. Technical theatre students include Jessica Karczeski and Simon Smith (Stage Managers), Joey Roberts (Assistant Stage Manager), Sarah Mellor (Technical Director), Marisa Leinenwever and Max Vandall (Sound Directors), Simon Smith and Grace Long (Lighting Director), Phenix Carver (Costumer), McEwen Guitierrez (Master Carpenter), Isabelle Cobbley (Props Head), Kasey Christie and Saydia Phillips (Hair and Makeup), Anya Egts and Calin Hill (House Managers), and Maggie Mus (Publicity). Come out and see this fabulous Woodinville High School Theatre Company production and support our continued effort to dust off all the skills that we did not get to use during the pandemic!
The show is adapted, directed, and designed by Josh Butchart; with support from Katharina Bomers-Muller (Producer), Stephanie Penoyer (Assistant Producer), Steve Cooper (Lights), Nathaniel Gibbs (Sound), Marsha Stueckle (Costumes), and the Woodinville Drama Boosters, led by Emily Mus and Jenny Webb.
