Maggie Morgan Designs Capital Stage Company’s Holiday Show
Maggie Morgan, UC Davis professor of theatre and dance, has designed the costumes for Capital Stage Company’s production of “Miss Bennet: Christmas at Pemberley.” A charming sequel to Jane Austen’s “Pride and Prejudice,” the show runs Dec. 6-30 in Sacramento.
In this imagined sequel, Mary Bennet is growing tired of her role as 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. This romantic comedy picks up two years after Jane Austen’s beloved tale ended, with a clever and captivating style that will delight Austen aficionados and newcomers alike!
“A perfectly constructed love story….Given its fizzy comedy, sweet spirit and clean structure, ["Miss Bennet"] seems destined to populate future holiday seasons…” – San Francisco Chronicle
“An unstuffy, highly entertaining and warm-spirited work, the kind of thing multiple generations can enjoy together.” — Chicago Tribune
