The Rockstar Music Academy presents Placer Repertory Theater’s holiday event: The Jane Austen Soiree at which audiences are encouraged to arrive early, dressed for the period, enjoy refreshments, watch, or join in the ‘contra danse’ just like in a Jane Austen film. Patrons will hear fascinating historical information and social graces of the period from the Event Social Director/Hostess Crystal Neher-Evans and may participate in the audience costume parade at intermission or win goodie baskets from local merchants and makers.
The main feature of the evening is its entertainment: top-notch professional actors perform the stage-reading of Persuasion: a holiday romantic comedy, inspired by the Jane Austen novel, at 2 p.m. and 7 p.m., which includes a post-show Q&A to meet the actors, playwright, and the creative team.
Doors open at 1:15 and 6:15
Seating is limited due to social distancing.
