You're invited to Jane Austen's Pemberley

Austen fans or "Janeites" as they are known rejoice. 3bCreative's July offering is Miss Bennet - Christmas at Pemberley.

This is one to look forward to - bursting with modern wit and period style, Miss Bennet - Christmas at Pemberley is a gorgeous sequel to Pride and Prejudice. Set two years after the novel ends, the play continues the story, only this time with bookish middle-sister Mary as its unlikely heroine.

Does Mary Bennet have an admirer?

Mary is growing tired of her role as a dutiful middle sister in the face of her siblings' romantic escapades.

When the family gathers for Christmas at Pemberley, an unexpected guest sparks Mary's hopes for independence, an intellectual match, and possibly even love.

The large and happy cast with their director Anne Grant

The play has a large cast, all superbly dressed in Regency style by 3bCreative's producer, director, designer, and sewing machine wizard Anne Grant, assisted by her team of costumiers.

The rich colours and textures of the costumes and accessories will be complemented by a stylish monochrome set.

Even the servants are gorgeous!

Miss Bennet - Christmas at Pemberley was written in 2016 by Lauren Gunderson and Margot Melcon. It was one of the most-produced plays in the USA in 2018, with 13 hit productions.

This is only the third Australian production, right here on the Sunny Coast.

This is a family-friendly Christmas in July show. A special Gala Matinee on July 25 will feature Regency dance specialists Kaleidoscope Dancers. Audiences for the gala are encouraged to wear their best Regency finery.
