Lemont High School set for “Pride and Prejudice,” GALLERY 306 show from Nov. 1-3


Join the witty Elizabeth Bennet as she navigates past her first impressions and seeks love on Lemont High School’s Performing Arts Center stage. The Drama Club’s fall play – “Pride and Prejudice” – will be featured from Friday, November 1, through Saturday, November 3. In conjunction with the fall play, the school’s Art Department will be featuring its “Fresh” art exhibition in “GALLERY 306.”

The production of “Pride and Prejudice” is set to run in the school’s Performing Arts Center at 7 p.m. nightly. Tickets may be purchased at the door, and are $10 for adults and $7 for children, senior citizens and students with a valid school ID. Students, faculty and staff also may purchase tickets during lunch periods beginning Monday, October 29.

The exhibit in “GALLERY 306” is a student art show that will be judged by alumna Jessica Kaminsky ‘11. The exhibit will be open from 5:45-6:45 p.m. nightly prior to the performances of “Pride and Prejudice,” spotlighting a variety of outstanding work from Lemont High School students.

In the stage version of “Pride and Prejudice,” Jon Jory dramatizes Jane Austen’s classic novel in which Elizabeth Bennet faces the trials of navigating love and status in early 19th century Britain. The romantic drama features the Bennet family, including 20-year-old Elizabeth’s introduction to the mysterious Mr. Darcy, a newly found love for her older sister Jane, and their younger sisters’ interest in both of their love lives.

“Pride and Prejudice” will be performed under the direction of Paula Smith, with Leslie Kane serving as the assistant director.

Those planning to attend any performance of “Pride and Prejudice” may park in the school’s parking garage or in the lot outside the Performing Arts Center; both are accessible off of Julia Street. Depending on the results of the first week of the IHSA football playoffs, Lemont could potentially host a playoff game on either November 2 or November 3. If that were to occur, patrons for that evening’s production of “Pride and Prejudice” would be encouraged to arrive early and allow for extra time to park.
