Event Details

WARNING: Strobe lighting will be used during this show. This may not be safe for those with epilepsy and other conditions with sensitivity to light.

Explore the clever Jane Austen by entering her comic and romantic world of Sense & Sensibility. Two young sisters – marriageable – but with unique personalities: the sensible Elinor Dashwood and the impulsive Marianne Dashwood, meet the wildly romantic John Willoughby, the reserved Mr. Edward Ferras, and the more mature Colonel Brandon. The professional diverse company of 18 actors imaginatively creates this elegant world, featuring Regency costumes, and charming dance in the intimate Rollins Theatre.

This acclaimed adaptation is written by Joseph Hanreddy & J.R. Sullivan (who also wrote Austin Shakespeare’s most popular production, Jane Austen’s Pride & Prejudice.)

Austin Shakespeare invites middle and high school students to a daytime “Informance” of scenes and discussion on Friday morning Nov. 18.

Directed by Ann Ciccolella, set design by Evonne Griffin, lighting design by Patrick Anthony, costume design by Maddy Lamb.

Starring: Johanna Whitmore, Corinna Browning, Emily Green, Nick Lawson*, Dane Parker, Kathy Lagaza, Sue Breland, Chuck Winkler, Hannah Rutt and Ev Lunning. Actors new to the company are: Emilotte Persson, Jorge Flores, Matt Hislope, Isaac Howell, Holley Garrison, Katy Craine, and Ruby Elian.

For the non-profit professional theater company Austin Shakespeare, “The Bard is only the beginning.” Audiences travel many roads with this professional company for surprising and entertaining theater productions at The Long Center’s Rollins Studio Theatre in the fall and spring, as well as Young Shakespeare at the Curtain Theatre, an Elizabethan replica. Founded in 1984, Austin Shakespeare stages performances that are fresh, bold, imaginative, thought-provoking and eminently accessible — connecting the truths of the past with the challenges and possibilities of today. Austin Shakespeare is dedicated to diverse casting, staffing and audience development. Austin Shakespeare’s education programs send professional actors into schools to encourage love of language.
