“Pride and Prejudice” at Cherry Creek High School

Don’t miss this wonderful Jane Austin favorite performed by the talented theatre department at Cherry Creek High School! We will enjoy this timeless story of forbidden love, class wars and more! Pride and Prejudice is an 1813 romantic novel by Jane Austen. It charts the emotional development of protagonist Elizabeth Bennet, who learns the error of making hasty judgments and comes to appreciate the difference between the superficial and the essential. The comedy of the writing lies in the depiction of manners, education, marriage, and money during the British Regency period. Mr. Bennet of the Longbourn estate has five daughters, but his property is entailed, meaning that none of the girls can inherit it. His wife has no fortune, so it is imperative that at least one of the girls marry well in order to support the others upon his death. Jane Austen’s opening line, “It is a truth universally acknowledged, that a single man in possession of a good fortune, must be in want of a wife”, is a sentence filled with irony and playfulness. The novel revolves around the importance of marrying for love, not simply for money, despite the social pressures to make a good (i.e., wealthy) match. $10       will be charged to your account for your ticket. If you cancel and we cannot find a replacement, you will be responsible for $10. If you cancel within 24 hours of the event, you will also be responsible for a $5 cancellation fee; $10 if it is a 2 van event. Please sign up in the Birch dining room to be a part of this event.
