The University Players continue their fifty-third season with production of Jane Austen’s classic comedy Emma running February 2nd to the 5th and the 8th to the 12th at the Essex Hall Theatre.
Jane Austen’s characters come to life in this new adaptation of the classic Emma, a romantic comedy about a precocious girl who find matchmaking “the most wonderful game in the world.” She plants ideas in people’s heads which grow feelings in their hearts, and through this meddling she finds her own heart’s desire – but only when she is about to lose him.
The production is directed by Jim Warren, a School of Dramatic Art alumnus and award-winning director. The version of Emma being performed was adapted by Michael Bloom, Artistic Director of the Cleveland Playhouse, and was first produced by that company in the Spring of 2010.
Wednesday through Saturday performances are at 8pm with Sunday matinees at 2pm.
