From AQ Theatre’s Facebook page:
Mark your calendars for AQ’s production of “AUSTENTATIOUS” the musical!
Synopsis: When the Cedar Rapids Amateur Players announce a new adaptation of Pride and Prejudice, stage manager Sam has her hands full with a colorful array of community theatre misfits: a clueless director, an egotistical writer/choreographer/leading lady, a scorned diva, an overlooked veteran, and the town’s local stoner. But when Sam begins to fall for the leading man, things really start to get complicated. This hilarious musical follows the group’s journey as they unwittingly butcher Jane Austen’s beloved classic, from chaotic auditions to climactic pirate battle and tap-off. With a jazzy score and anachronisms galore, Austentatious is terrible theater at its absolute comedic best.
Cast: Ben Avery, Marisa Sue Marie Purcey, Kenny Judge, Rachel Varley, Maris Wimmer, Stephen Douglas Wright, and Taylor Nefcy. [Note from the editor: Taylor is also Actors’ very own marketing and development intern!]
