SUBJECT: COLLEGE OF THE OZARKS PRESENTS “LIZZY, DARCY AND JANE” AS WINTER PRODUCTION
By: Austin Plummer
The College of the Ozarks Theatre Department will present the winter production, “Lizzy, Darcy and Jane,” at 7:30 p.m., on Dec. 1, 2, 3 and 4. A Sunday matinee will begin at 2:30 p.m., on December 2.
This intriguing play effectively fuses Jane Austen’s personal life with her award-winning novel, Pride and Prejudice. Austen’s active imagination wanders from reality and enters a world where her characters develop and mature as she does. Disappointed in love, Jane destines her imaginary friend, Lizzy Bennet, to a life married to the insufferable Mr. Collins, but Lizzy is too willful for her author and retains her questionable relationship with a certain brooding Mr. Darcy.
Tickets are required to attend this production. Adult tickets are $10, senior citizens, non-C of O students are $8 and children are $6. To make reservations, please call the Jones Theatre Department at (417) 690-2626.
