“Aquila Theatre – Pride And Prejudice”  Debuts At The Grand 1894 Opera House, October 29

First published in 1813, Jane Austen’s ultimate romantic comedy – Pride and Prejudice has certainly stood the test of time, filled with such unforgettable characters as Elizabeth Bennet and Mr. Darcy – whose sharp social satire have it all: wit, love, and lots of dancing!  Austen humorously skewers the hypocrisies and absurdities of the English class system by putting her women characters front and center. And now you can look forward to the Aquila Theatre bringing this classic to life – with its signature passion, energy, and visual flair. Look forward to a grand evening and experience for yourself how The New Yorker Magazine defines Aquila’s production: “Beautifully spoken, dramatically revealing, and crystalline in effect.”  This performance is sponsored in part by Kempner Capital Management, Inc., Texas Commission on the Arts, and National Endowment for the Arts. At this time, masks are recommended, but not required at Grand performances.

For ticket prices and more information, call The Grand’s box office at 409.765.1894, 800.821.1894, or visit The Grand’s website at www.thegrand.com.   Listed on the National Register of Historic Places, The Grand 1894 Opera House, located at 2020 Postoffice Street in Galveston’s historic downtown Cultural Arts District, is recognized as “The Official Opera House of the State of Texas.” All major credit cards are accepted.
