Pride and Prejudice Graphic

NORTH PLATTE, NE, August 30, 2023 -- North Platte High School’s Theatre Department will present the well beloved classic, Pride and Prejudice September 15th and 16th  at 7:00 p.m at the NPHS Performing Arts Center. 

The Jane Austen novel adapted by Joseph Hanreddy and J.R. Sullivan tells the story of the Bennet family, their five daughters, and the joy, heartbreak, and humor that is trying to find a husband. “While the romance and tension are the main thread throughout the story, this adaptation really leans into the themes of family and the lengths we are willing to go to for them.” states director Brittany McDaniel.  With a cast and crew of 41, the show fills the stage and it has been a lot of work.  With this many students involved, McDaniel had to bring in extra help.  Parents built the set, extra students helped with the set painting, and the new FCS Club at the high school made several of the costumes. “It’s been a wonderful, community experience to be able to connect with different people with different talents and let them showcase what they can do on stage alongside the actors.” adds McDaniel.

This will be a show you won’t want to miss.  All theatergoers will appreciate this timeless classic.

General Admission is $5 and the doors open at 6:30 p.m.
