7:00 PM Stage: Sense and Sensibility In Jane Austen's first published novel, the Dashwood sisters find that love is an unpredictable struggle against the most important social values: family, honor and wealth. With their father's untimely death, family fortunes take a turn and they are forced to leave their home. After a few chance meetings, Elinor falls for the intelligent and reserved Edward Ferrars, while Marianne dotes upon the dashing John Willoughby. Through Elinor's sense and Marianne's sensibility, the delicate balance of propriety and passion is explored in Austen's sprightly tale. Enjoy this production of Sense and Sensibility performed with a full high tea using an "in the round" theater experience at Tea Lane tea house in Fallbrook.

Admission/Cost: $59.00

The musical's plot relates the experiences of Anna, a British schoolteacher hired as part of the King's drive to modernize his country. The relationship between the King and Anna is marked by conflict through much of the piece, as well as by a love to which neither can admit.

Almost none of them have ever been at the sea, and they want to see it for the first time. But they need the money to fund their journey. After some failed attempts, they decide to face their shyness, and to model for a calendar. When also this action seems to be useless, their last idea will make them pretty famous. The Sea, and their common dream, are waiting for them.
