BREAKDOWN AND NOTES:

GENERAL 411:

* The story takes place in 1815 so actors must be a fit within this period and style.
* Dialect will be Royal Pronunciation.
* SINGING:
There will be some singing (any range). They all sing a Christmas Carol together at the end of the play.

Jane and Lizzie sing a harmony duet together. These do not need to be true "professionally trained voices"; however, they do need to be comfortable singing on stage and sound pleasing.



MARY BENNET: 20-30. Finally coming in to her own, she is no longer the plain, boring girl she once was. She has a fire in her now. She is attractive, intelligent, curious, and lively. She does not suffer fools. She wants to live.

ARTHUR DE BOURGH: 25-33. A studious, unsociable, only child who has never been around women or large families. He is a loner who prefers books to people. He has recently inherited a large estate and has no idea what to do next.

ELIZABETH DARCY: 20-33. Confident, attractive, charming, and witty. She makes a fun and surprising lady of the house. Actress must feel comfortable enough with singing to perform a duet onstage.

FITZWILLIAM DARCY: 25-35. A loving, generous, handsome and smart (if slightly stiff) husband. He is quiet and vigilant and thus sees what others often miss. He knows what being lovelorn is like.

JANE BINGLEY: 25-33. She is 7 months pregnant with her first child and is sweet and optimistic as ever. Beautiful in every way. The kindest heart in the house. Actress must feel comfortable enough with singing to perform a duet onstage.

CHARLES BINGLEY: 25-33. Gracious, happy, handsome and ever-focused on the love of his life, Jane. A good friend and always ready with a smile.

LYDIA WICKHAM: To play 18-25. Flirtatious, attractive, braggadocios and selfish free spirit. Her marriage to Mr. Wickham is a sham but she will not admit this. She also won’t admit that she desperately needs the love of her family.

ANNE DE BOURGH: 20-30. Only daughter of the late Lady Catherine de Bourgh. Lived in her mother’s very large shadow, never having to ask for anything or speak for herself, her entire life. Judgmental, opinionated and impatient, just like her mother.
