CANCELLED (COVID-19) The 2020 Magnificat High School production of
A playful new adaptation of Jane Austen's
Sunday, April 5, 2020 at 2:00 PM
at Magnificat Center for the Performing Arts
20770 Hilliard Boulevard Rocky River, Ohio 44116
Jane Austen’s beloved novel 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. Set in gossipy late 18th-century England, the play is full of humor, emotional depth, and bold theatricality. SENSE AND SENSIBILITY examines our reactions, both reasonable and ridiculous, to societal pressures.  When reputation is everything, how do you follow your heart?
Performing interpreters:
Colleen Ticherich, Cindy Koontz, & Raquel Marton
