GREENSBORO, N.C. – Greensboro College Theatre presents “Miss Bennet: Christmas at Pemberley,” 7:30 p.m. Thursday-Saturday, Nov. 7-9, and 2 p.m. Saturday and Sunday, Nov. 9-10, in Gail Brower Huggins Performance Center in Odell Building on campus.

All tickets are $10 and may be reserved by calling 336-272-7102, ext. 5242, or emailing tickets@greensboro.edu. Free parking is available in the lot next to the Odell Building at College Place and Odell Place, or in the lot behind the college’s Admissions Welcome Center at West Market Street and College Place.

The play, by Lauren Gunderson and Margot Melcon, is a sequel to Jane Austen’s novel “Pride and Prejudice,” taking place two years after the events of the book. Elizabeth Bennett’s sister Mary is growing tired of her role as dutiful middle sister in the face of her siblings’ romantic escapades. When the family gathers for Christmas at Pemberley, an unexpected guest sparks Mary’s hopes for independence, an intellectual match, and possibly even love.

The production is directed by David Schram, Jefferson Pilot Professor of Theatre, chair of the Theatre Department, and dean of the School of the Arts.

The Greensboro College Department of Theatre seeks to provide a strong foundation in theatre while allowing the student to emphasize in a particular area of theatre.

The coursework is integrated with the production work to provide a better understanding of the many facets of the theatre. Required participation on stage or backstage on all theatre productions allows the techniques and theories that are examined in the classroom and the laboratory to be tested in a performance setting.

Depending upon their emphasis of choice, upon completion of the degree, students will be prepared to enter graduate school or a theatre conservatory, intern full-time with a theatre organization, teach theatre or seek careers in the profession.
