    Aquila Theater in Jane Austen’s - Sense and Sensibility
    Wednesday, October 18, 2017 at 7:30pm
    Bromeley Family Theater, Blaisdell Hall
    Public: $22 / Faculty & Staff: $18 / Students: $10/ Pitt-Bradford Students $5

    The characters of Jane Austen’s Sense and Sensibility live in a world in which choices are limited -- especially for the women. After the unexpected death of their father, sisters Elinor, who is level-headed and full of sense, and the hopelessly romantic, Marianne, are forced to leave their comfortable lives, while their half brother and his wife inherit the family estate. The only hope for these two sisters is a profitable marriage. Seduction, courtship, love, heartbreak, and surprise abound in this classic romantic comedy.

    Aquila expands the canon of classical works for the stage by adapting Sense and Sensibility in a bold and exciting new production. Directed by Aquila’s artistic director Desiree Sanchez, this production will incorporate her innovative use of space, movement, design, and sound. D.C. Metro said, “Sanchez is wildly inventive and the production choices made were carried out beautifully,” and NY Theater Review says, “Her direction is polished and laser sharp. She gets the maximum amount of potential out of every stage moment, has exceptional attention to detail, and is a demiurge of direction.” www.AquilaTheatre.com

    Two-time Grammy award-winning artist and eighth generation Louisiana Creole Terrance Simien has been shattering the myths about what his indigenous Zydeco roots music is and is not. Simien and his Zydeco Experience band have played over 7,000 concerts in more than 45 countries. They performed their original song “Dance Everyday” in the Warner Brothers film The Lucky One and “Gonna Take You There” in Disney’s The Princess and the Frog. Terrance and his bandmates have shared studio and stage with Robert Palmer, Stevie Wonder, Los Lobos, Taj Mahal, Dr. John, the Meters, Alan Toussaint, Paul Simon and Dave Matthews Band, to name a few. There’s no need to travel to Louisiana to have the authentic zydeco experience. We are bringing it to Pitt-Bradford! www.TerranceSimien.com
