Pride and Prejudice

UPDATE 3/25/06-From left to right, Mr. Darcy-played by Michael B., Mary Bennett-played by Paige, Mr. Bingley-played by Justin C., Hill (the Bennett's maidservant)-played by Elizabeth, Grace Long-played by Grace and Jane Bennett-played by Caitlin. All four of the girls are "Arkanblogettes". Both shows went off without a "hitch", except some of the guys were a little soft on their words the first night but MUCH better this afternoon. I never realized how much work goes into these productions until today. I stand amazed. Caitlin (Jane Bennett) got a beautiful bouquet of flowers and a nice plaque for being "Assistant Student Director". Grandfather J. has better pictures and we'll post some of those when he gets them to us. Click on the photo to make it larger. More later...

No, this is not a post on the pitfalls of being pridefull and prejudiced. The Arkanblogger household has been a whirlwind of activity this week in preparation for the stage play of Pride and Prejudice, which opens tonight at 7:00 and concludes with a second production, tomorrow at 2:30. All of our daughters have parts in the play and Mrs. Arkanblogger will be playing the wedding march on the piano (in fact, I can hear her now, practicing it downstairs). We have grandparents in from Montana to see the show and we hope to see the local contingent of other grandparents, cousins, aunts, uncles and friends at the theatre this evening. I'll update this post with pictures and try giving a review of the play later on this evening.

See you at the show!

That sounds really neat. Wish I could be there! Hopefully your Grandfather Jack is making a video of it!
