Actors Ensemble will present FREE in Berkeley's
fantastic John Hinkel Park Amphitheatre PRIDE AND PREJUDICE, adapted by Constance Cox from the book by Jane Austen, directed by Ann O’Connell. All performances are at 4 p.m. beginning with a special show on Friday, July 4th (yes, come see romantic fireworks before the other kind). Then the show runs on Saturdays and Sundays from July 5th to July 20th. The amphitheater will open at 3 p.m. for picnicing. Join us as the Bennet girls grapple with Mr. Darcy, Charles Bingley, and the rest of Jane Austen’s rich (and surprisingly funny) universe.
The amphitheatre seats over 200 people (check out a photo below from last summer's performance), but we will reserve the first few rows as a courtesy especially to the elderly and disabled - call 510-649-5999 to make a reservation. The amphitheatre is wheelchair accessible - access is best from Somerset Pl, take Southhampton from Arlington and continue straight onto Somerset Pl. (Google Maps will send you to the top of park, quite a hike down). The amphitheatre consists of a series of stone steps. Low lawnchairs are acceptable, or bring pillows and/or blankets.
