Mission students present a classic tale

Pride and Prejudice takes place at Mission Secondary

Mission Secondary School’s Theatre Production Program is presenting Jane Austen’s classic tale Pride and Prejudice.

Set in 1813, the play follows the character development of Elizabeth Bennet, the dynamic protagonist, who learns about the repercussions of hasty judgments and eventually comes to appreciate the difference between superficial goodness and actual goodness.

A classic piece filled with comedy, its humour lies in its honest depiction of manners, education, marriage and money during the Regency era in Great Britain.

The play takes place Dec. 12-15 at 7 p.m. at Mission Secondary (room 005, west entrance at the back). Tickets are $5 each and can be purchased at the door, or call 604-826-7191 for more information.
