Miss Bennet: Christmas at Pemberley

Miss Bennet: Christmas at Pemberley by Lauren Gunderson & Margot Melcon

November 22- December 22

Written by Lauren Gunderson & Margot Melcon

Directed by Kelly Roush

It warms you with Regency charm, literate wit, and… carries its simple message as if embroidered on a… handsome piece of needlework.” D.L. Groover, Houston Press

Taking place two years after the conclusion of Jane Austen’s beloved novel Pride and Prejudice, the bookish, oft-neglected middle sister, Mary Bennet becomes the center of our holiday story. When the shy, bookworm Arthur de Bourgh turns up unexpectedly at the family celebration, Mary must learn to be the heroine of her own story in order to get the romance she longs for.


Opening Night – November 22, 2019. Please join us for a complimentary opening night champagne reception after the show!



"The Classic Theatre of San Antonio made a clever choice when selecting this captivating play to be their holiday production. Written by Lauren Gunderson and Margot Melcon this new play is a pure delight and is sure to become a well-loved classic in no time. It is full of quick-wit and riddled with everything that makes Austen novels transcend generations." - Ashley Corbaley, Broadway World

"There's definitely sizzles and sparks'...Roush says the dialogue stands out, like in the novel. 'Yes, their smartness is a delight. As actors it is a delight to be so smart, and witty...the audience enjoys that and hears that as well.' Roush says that rapid-fire intelligent dialogue makes for great theater." - Interview with Director, Kelly Roush, by Jack Morgan, TPR

"Alyx Gonzales perfectly conveys Mary’s frustrations and is brilliantly paired with Hunter Wulff who brings the nerdy and socially awkward Arthur to life. Wonderful performances all around. The period costumes are gorgeous and the holiday setting gives ‘Miss Bennet’ a warm, inviting feel and that makes this a must-see show to celebrate the most wonderful time of the year." - Sandra Cruz, SA Examiner
