Hey, Pride and Prejudice Fans! Make Plans to See This Play Based Upon the Jane Austen Tale

Founded in 1975, Main Street Theater produces innovative, thought-provoking plays for adults and children, and theater arts education and integration programs tailored to the needs of each school and community partner. This season, Main Street Theater welcomes you for a joyful holiday production of The Wickhams: Christmas At Pemberley on Sunday, November 24th!

Regency romance is back for the holidays with Lauren Gunderson and Margot Melcon’s The Wickhams: Christmas at Pemberley—a companion piece to the duo’s delightful Miss Bennet: Christmas at Pemberley—both continuations of Jane Austen’s popular novel, Pride and Prejudice. As the events of Miss Bennet unfold upstairs at Pemberley, the servants below stairs find themselves in the midst of a different holiday scandal.

An unwelcome visitor has stumbled into the hall in the middle of the night—Mr. Darcy’s nemesis and Lydia’s incorrigible husband, Mr. Wickham! The bustling housekeeper, Mrs. Reynolds, Cassie, the resilient new serving girl, and Brian, the helplessly romantic groomsman, must each balance their holiday preparations with keeping Wickham confined. But before long, everything reaches a boiling point, festivities spiral into chaos, and the truth comes to light!

Main Street Theater’s mission is to create theater that challenges its audience to think and its artists to grow. We accomplish this by presenting an articulate and compelling product in an intimate setting, creating significant employment for Houston-based artists, and memorable theatrical experiences for audiences of all ages.

The Wickhams: Christmas At Pemberley is an utterly delightful holiday tale. Grab your tickets to see the November 24th performance now! Tickets may be purchased online at www.mainstreettheater.com.

At Whispering Winds Apartments in Pearland, Texas, it is clear that we have it all, but we still feel obliged to inform you of all the events our community has scheduled. Please feel free to join in all of the fun during this premier event!
