mar 12-23 | Emma | TWU's SAMC Theatre

Trinity Western's latest mainstage production is almost here! Come out and support young artists (who may even grace PT's stage one day...) in there production of EMMA. 

Long before eHarmony there was Emma....

The year is 1814 and Emma Woodhouse is eager to see her friends happily married. Giddy with the success of one match, Emma ignores the warnings of Mr. Knightley and turns her attention to young Harriet Smith, determined to ensure a suitable union. But Emma's efforts misfire, resulting in a flurry of comic complications that uncover the real effects of her meddling and reveal how little Emma knows about true love.  A timeless romance, EMMA plays March 12 - 23 at TWU's School of the Arts, Media and Culture.

Adapted for the stage by Michael Bloom, this production transports the audience to the English countryside as the action takes place against a backdrop of beautifully painted panels. The set is desired by the director Caleb, the chief force behind SAMC Theatre's runaway hit Fiddler on the Roof last season. Lighting design is by Jessica Wong and the beautiful regency costumes are designed by Sabrina Evertt, whos work was seen in this year's Go Back for Murder  and last season's Romeo + Juliet. Ariana Hurt provides live piano accompaniment, scoring the experience with the evocative music of the era. Stave management is by Charissa Hurt, Tiffany Choi, and Margaret Thorpe.

The cast features, Daniele Neve, Brandon Bate, Ben Buckingham, Julie Casselman, Mark Fleming, Cody Friesen, Sharra Ganzeveld, Andrew Gundy, Audrey Herold, Dave Shoffner, and Jane Townsend.
