WHAT

Youth theatrical group Riverfront Theatre Company opens our production of Jane Austen’s classic romantic novel, Pride and Prejudice on Friday, February 19th at the Olde Walkerville Theatre.

This is an original production, adapted from the novel by Kristina and Caroline Garswood, and will be performed by the Senior Ensemble at RTC, a group of 27 students between the ages of 11-17, who have been studying and rehearsing the play since September.

Riverfront Theatre Company is a youth theatre company, with students ranging between the ages of 6 and 18. We draw our participants from throughout Windsor and Essex County, and, as a charitable organization, we do not charge the students or their families a registration fee to participate in the programme. We rehearse them weekly throughout the school year on Saturdays, with the devoted efforts of a group of volunteers, and put them on the stage three times each season. Our Juniors have a more discreet performance on a weekend, for family and friends, to build their experience and support before they join the main group. Our Seniors (ages 11-17) perform a play in mid-winter designed to challenge and stretch their growing skill set. The entire group then comes together in May for our annual spring musical, which, in 2016, will be an original adaptation of Aladdin and the Arabian Nights.

There will be four performances of the play:
Friday, February 19th at 10 a.m. – special show for school and community groups (by pre-booking only)
Friday, February 19th at 7 p.m.
Saturday, February 20th at 7 p.m.
Sunday, February 21st at 2 p.m.

Tickets for the school performances can be booked by contacting [email protected], or calling 519-817-8780.

Tickets for all other performances ($15/adults, $8 for students under 18), can be obtained through the Olde Walkerville Theatre box office at 1564 Wyandotte St. E. 519-253-2929.
