Cindy wore a mid-Edwardian dress she made herself. I wore my 1912 tea/luncheon gown (made by Tracie) and the 1911ish “Lunardi revival” hat I’d put together for the GBACG “My Fair Lady” event last August.
“Waltz your way through picnics, parties and posh frocks in this classic Regency rom-com.
After a winter tour throughout UK theatres, this brilliantly conceived rom-com classic bursts vibrantly in to the open air. Dip into the gossip and squabbles, grapple with the riddles, blunders and misunderstandings and finally, revel in the glorious romance of this delightful and charming story from the masters of classic adaptations.
Famed for incisive wit and social commentary, Emma is also about the complexities of imagination versus reality and the overriding power of love and affection.
A clever, rich, bored and “slightly” spoiled young woman, Emma throws herself in to the perils of mis-matchmaking in this world-renowned and well-loved Regency rom-com. Emma is Jane Austenâ€™s most realistic heroine trying to do her very best and, in true Austen fashion, getting it very wrong!
Live music, dance and audience interaction will abound as – from the engaging yet exasperating Emma to the sympathetic yet quintessential bore, Miss Bates – the multi-talented cast recreate the rich and varied personalities of some of the most vibrant characters from English literature and bring them vividly to life. “
I’m not a news service, but as I learn stuff, I post it. Right now, there are several Haunted Mansion 40th Anniversary merchandise events planned for Disneyland in 2009. There’s a June pin event, an August cocktail event and product signing with Shag, and a September “Wedding”-themed merch event.
Plan your involvement soon; the September anniversary event begins registering on January 20. It appears to borrow the general format (and pricing philosophy, puke) of the old Haunted Mansion Holiday dinner weekends (snooze) and plays to the new Constance/black widow bride angle (snooze-puke-choke). It falls on 9/9, a month after the actual anniversary, and on a thursday freaking night to boot. Boo.
The Josh Agle cocktail events occur on the real 40th anniversary weekend.
I heard it from Laurel Ann who heard it from Austenblog who heard it from several other people who heard it from someone else entirely (ha!) that there may be a new Emma adaptation in the works from the BBC. Supposedly, screenwriter Sandy Welch is responsible for the four-part script.
