Prairie High School Drama presents Sense and Sensibility

May 2, 2022

Jane Austen’s beloved novel “Sense and Sensibility” comes to life on the Prairie High School Auditorium stage starting Friday, May 6. This playful adaptation by Kate Hamill follows the fortunes (and misfortunes) of the Dashwood sisters—sensible Elinor and hypersensitive Marianne—after their father’s sudden death leaves them financially destitute and socially vulnerable. 

student actors“It is a joy to work on this exuberant comedy with this spirited cast,” said Prairie Drama’s director Claire Verity.

Set in gossipy late 18th century England, with a fresh female voice, the play is full of humor, emotional depth and bold theatricality. “Sense and Sensibility” examines how we react to societal pressures, from the reasonable to the ridiculous. When reputation is everything, how do you follow your heart?

Show times are Friday, May 6 at 7:00 p.m. and Saturday, May 7 at 1:00 and 7:00 p.m., Thursday, May 12 at 6:00 p.m. and Friday, May 13 at 7:00 p.m. Tickets can be purchased online and seating will be based on best available at the time of your order. The cost is $6 for students, $15 for adults, and $12 for senior citizens.

“Sense and Sensibility” is being performed by permission of Dramatists Play Service.
