Announcing the cast of Pride and Prejudice

Director Laura Mecsey has announced the cast of Pride and Prejudice, the third Civic Youth Theatre production in the 2011-2012 season at Civic Theatre of Greater Lafayette. The script is by Jon Jory, based on the novel by Jane Austen.

The cast includes:

Aaron Newton - Mr. Bennet
Maggie Furtner - Mrs. Bennet
Sarah Weaver - Jane Bennet
Malena de la Fuente - Elizabeth Bennet
Julia Spratt - Mary Bennet/Lady Catherine de Bourgh
Ariel Laukins - Kitty Bennet
Tori Rosa - Lydia Bennet
Hannah Lazarz - Charlotte Lucas
Mark Krutulis - Mr. Darcy
Nathan Keiller - Mr. Bingley
Erica Gibson - Miss Caroline Bingley
Asher Trout - Colonel Fitzwilliam
Cody Walker - Sir William Lucas
Joscelyn Allen - Georgiana/Lead Dancer/Housekeeper
Nate Breneman - Mr. Collins
Alex Mullenix - Mr. Gardiner
Helen Woeste - Mrs. Gardiner
Adam Mengler - George Wickham

Finding a husband is hardly Elizabeth Bennet's most urgent priority; but with four sisters, an overzealous match-making mother, and a string of unsuitable suitors, it's difficult to escape the subject. When the independent-minded Elizabeth meets the handsome but enigmatic Mr. Darcy, she is determined not to let her feelings triumph over her own good sense -- but the truth turns out to be slipperier than it seems. In a society where subtle snubs and deceit proliferate, is it possible for Elizabeth and Darcy to look beyond his pride and her prejudice, and to make the best match of all?

Pride and Prejudice will open Friday, March 30 and run through Sunday, April 1 in the historic Monon Depot Theatre. Friday and Saturday performances begin at 7:30 p.m. The Sunday performance begins at 2:30 p.m.
