Harrison School for the Arts, Lakeland, FL – Pride and Prejudice

Harrison School for the Arts of Lakeland, FL presents:

Theatre   Pride and Prejudice

I want to talk about a High School that is near and dear to my heart. In 1989 Harrison Arts Center opened its doors to 154 students. It is the only High School in Polk County with a strong emphasis in the arts program. Students currently enrolled majoring in their field of Music, Dance, Theatre, Musical Theatre, and Visual Arts. These students take their General Education Classes at Lakeland High School.

Harrison School for the Arts proudly presents the east coast premiere of Marcus Goodwin’s adaptation of Jane Austin’s famous novel, Pride and Prejudice. The public performances will tale place on February 28th, 29th, and March 1st at 7:30 p.m. and March 2nd at 2:00 p.m. There is limited seating for this event. Tickets are $10.00 for adults and $8.00 for students and senior citizens. You may purchase your tickets on-line at Harrison School for the Arts web site.

One of the world’s first romantic comedies casts its eye upon the society of the landed gentry in 19th century England. The story revolves around the five marriageable daughters of the Bennett family. When Mr. Darcy arrives to live in the area, the Bennett family is quick to spot ideal husband material. Elizabeth, one of the five Bennett sisters, does not take kindly to Mr. Darcy until her opinion of him changes and she falls in love.

I hope, I will see you there as I will be selling tickets in the Box Office for Harrison School for the Arts. Enjoy the performance!
