“It is a very fun and fast-paced play based on Jane Austen’s book,” said Karlee Klitgaard, the assistant director of the show.

The story, set in England in 1800, is about two sisters, Marianne & Elinor, and how they handle life after their father passes. Marianne is an emotional character who takes action through her feelings, while Elinor is more sensible and follows the rules in a society that spread rumors.
