Sasha & Co. present Pride & Prejudice

In honor of the 200th anniversary of the publication of
Jane Austen's Pride and Prejudice on January 28, 1813,
Sasha and Co. proudly present their abbreviated rendition of Pride and Prejudice!

Featuring (L-R) Sasha Kaelita as Jane Bennet; Lona Rachelle as Elizabeth (Lizzie) Bennet; (Mary Bennet not pictured); Shyvonne Alette as Kitty Bennet; and Tasha Rhiannon as Lydia Bennet;

Prince FitzGregor Darcy as Mr. Fitzwilliam Darcy; Patrick Terrence as Mr. Charles Bingley;
Gregor Vaughn as Mr. William Collins; Alex as Mr. George Wickham;

Kiltie Grace as Caroline Bingley; Pintux Emeria as Anne deBourgh;
Cora Morgen as Lady Catherine deBourgh; and Angela Karinne as Charlotte Lucas.

And now our production....
 Mr. and Mrs. Bennet had five daughters, and Mrs. Bennet was very eager to see them married well, so when Mr. Charles Bingley moves into a neighboring estate, she eagerly sends her girls to the next ball to meet him.
Mr. Bingley and Jane Bennet hit it off very well, but his friend,
Mr. Fitzwilliam Darcy refuses to dance with her sister, Lizzie Bennet.

The rest of the young ladies think Mr. Darcy is quite the catch. (Wouldn't you?)
But Lizzie is not impressed.

Jane goes to visit Mr. Bingley's sister, Caroline Bingley and takes ill.
Lizzie goes to care for Jane and is often subjected to Mr. Darcy's company.
A bit later, Mr. Bingley suddenly departs. Who knows what he's thinking?

A short time later Mr. George Wickham arrives in town.
Kitty and Lydia can't resist a man in uniform, and even Lizzie soon makes friends with him.
He tells her stories that fortify her prejudice against Mr. Darcy.

About that time, Mr. William Collins, a cousin of the Bennet's, comes to the area seeking a wife.
Seeing that the eldest is already attached to Mr. Bingley, he proposes to Lizzie who promptly refuses.

Not to be dissuaded in matrimony, Mr. Collins proposes to Lizzie's best friend,
Charlotte Lucas, who gratefully accepts his offer.

After the marriage, Lizzie goes to visit Charlotte in her new home.
Again, she is thrown into company with the insufferable Mr. Darcy.
He gradually takes more and more notice of her.

During their stay, they must visit Lady Catherine deBourgh
who intends for her daughter, Anne deBourgh, to marry Mr. Darcy.

Despite Lizzie's prejudices and Mr. Darcy's arrogance, Lizzie doesn't love this plan.

Still Lizzie is shocked and unprepared when Mr. Darcy proposes to her and she refuses him.

There is a great uproar when word gets out that Lydia has run off with Mr. Wickham.
Mr. Darcy saves the day by seeing to it that Mr. Wickham marries Lydia and restores her honor.
He writes a letter to Lizzie explaining Mr. Wickham's past among other things.
Lizzie begins to reconsider her refusal.

Meanwhile, Mr. Bingley learns that Jane was merely demure and not uninterested
and he proposes to and is accepted by Jane.

And just when Lizzie thinks all hope of a second offer from Mr. Darcy is gone,
he is given renewed hope and proposes again.
And this time, Lizzie says yes.

Moving in for the kiss. So romantic, I can hardly stand it!

We had a ball. Hope you did too!

That was a great start of the week. I have repeatedly enjoyed the movies on TV, in dull winter evenings, but your settings beat them with the witty comments too. Very funny! Angela looks lovely in lilac by the way...FB

Great cast deserving of this most wonderful of all Jane Austen's works! She would have been delighted by the grace and beauty of the actors. Just lovely! xxx Karin

kudus to the scriptwriter--what an amazing condensation of plot--and yet retained every essential detail! And who knew Sasha's could be so romantically expressive--but then expression is their forte! This was a riot-- encore! Surely there's a LOTR anniversary coming up that is worth commemorating, yes?
