Wilmington Christian School will present the dramatic musical "Jane Eyre" on Friday and Saturday.
Musical composer-lyricist Paul Gordon breathes John Caird's book adaptation to life with haunting and deeply touching lyrics. In Charlotte Bronte's classic 19th century novel, the heroine, Jane, suffers injustices throughout her life only to learn that forgiveness and love truly must overcome all.
The production features students with repertoires of All State and All Eastern voice and instrument, who have performed in noted venues such as the Kennedy Center, Carnegie Hall, Grand Opera House, and with Opera Delaware, Children's Theatre of Delaware, National Poetry Out Loud competitions, and many more. Be prepare to be moved by the performances and the message of an irrepressible spirit.
Don't miss this chance to see this classic favorite directed by Allyson Sands Good. Vocal coaches Heather Elgena and Suzanne Jackson (of Washington National Opera fame), and the WCS pit orchestra will assist the production under the direction of Barbara Schiller, director of fine arts at Wilmington Christian School.
All seats are $12, and tickets are purchased at the door on the evening of the performances.
