Peter and Paul's Hall, Carolyn Schwegel and Ronald Hauck will take the leads' as Miss Elizabeth Bennet and Mr. Darcy. Mary Lou Podhorn as Mrs. Bennet will play the part of Elizabeth's mother, whose one concern in life is to get' her daughters married. Two of them, Jane and Lydia (Jean Thomec- zek and Judy Seibert) are quite. content with their Mr. Bingley, portrayed by Richard Gorman, and Mr. Wickham, played by Frank Romano, but cause plenty of trouble even at that. But nothing compared to Elizabeth! She actually refuses to marry either of her two suitors, the seemingly proud Darcy or the actually pompous Mr. Collins, the latter impersonated by John Boland. Robert Dixon as Mr. Bennet has an irressistible sense of humor while he gives stability to the members of the household. Lady Catherine de Bourgh, played by Margaret Hart, has an intense realization of her position in society and does all she can to complicate matters between her nephew, Darcy, and Elizabeth. Joan. Albers and Kaye Gross as Lady Lucas and Charlotte Lucas, and Julie Beaty as Miss Bingley, do much to develop the intricacies of the plot, while John Mullen presents his version of an 18th century English butler.
