Open to classic performance

June 26, 2013


AN OPEN-AIR theatre performance of Pride and Prejudice attracted an audience of 120 people. The Jane Austen classic, the subject of numerous film and TV adaptations, was performed by the Chapterhouse Theatre Company at Donington-le-Heath Manor House, marking the 200th anniversary of the book's first publication.

Manager Richard Knox said: It was quite well attended, given the on-off weather we've had. The audience of 120 left very happy.

We had some very positive feedback from the audience and the players who enjoyed performing for them.

The second and final open air performance of this season at Donington will be Sherlock Holmes and the Hound of the Baskervilles by the same theatre company on August 29.

On Sunday, Donington on the Home Front will feature a presentation by the Up An' At 'Em History group.

In the afternoon, it is the popular monthly vintage car and motorcycle rally.
