KOKOMO, Ind. — The student University Theatre group at Indiana University Kokomo presents the much-loved romance classic, Pride and Prejudice.

IUKL0139Pride and Prejudice performed by University Theatre.

The production is a two-act play which Shelby Wagoner, the assistant director, describes as a classic romantic comedy about love and misunderstandings.

"It's just like a period piece version of Gossip Girl," said Wagoner. "The story is actually funny and easy to follow along."

Pride and Prejudice show dates and times are at 7 p.m. on Friday, November 1, and Saturday, November 2, and a matinee showing at 2 p.m. on Sunday, November 3, in Havens Auditorium.

Admission is $5 for students and $7 for the public. Tickets will be available at the door. The show is suitable for people age 13 and older

"It is a fast-paced adaptation of the novel. It looks more like the BBC version rather than the 2005 movie," said Director Joann Kaiser.

"The students have worked really hard in understanding the language, let alone understand the structure of this adaptation. It's been a difficult journey but well worth it. The final product should be something they can be proud of," said Kaiser.
