A Summer Romance for the Ages

Lee Street Theatre's ninth season comes to a close as Salisbury's Jenny Hubbard and Claudia Galup prepare to introduce a whole new take on a timeless classic. Jenny Hubbard's new adaptation of the love story that has captured hearts for over two centuries, Jane Austen's Pride and Prejudice, will be directed by Claudia Galup. While Hubbard's adaptation maintains the charm and humor of Austen's original work, the script is anything but conventional. When paired with Galup's fresh and unique vision, audiences are sure to experience this classic tale in a whole new way.

While rehearsals have just begun, it's never to early to mark your calendar for this breathtaking summer romance!

Performances run July 20-23 & 27-29 at 7:30pm with a matinee at 2:30pm on July 23 at Lee Street theatre and Performing Arts Center at the Tom and Martha Smith Event Center on 329 North Lee Street, Salisbury, NC 28144. Visit www.leestreet.org or call 704-310-5507 for more information
