by Lauren Gunderson and Margot Melcon
Rehearses: 11/6/18-11/28/18
Runs: 11/28/18-12/30/18 
MARY BENNET – Female. 20. Finally coming in to her own, she is no longer the plain, boring girl she once was. She has a fire in her now. She is intelligent, curious, and lively, but her family only sees her as a future spinster. She does not suffer fools. She wants to live. 
ARTHUR DE BOURGH – Male. 22. A studious, unsociable, only child who has never been around women or large families. He is a loner who prefers books to people. He has recently inherited a large estate and has no idea what to do next. 
ELIZABETH DARCY – Female. 22 and married to Mr. Darcy. Confident, charming, and witty. She makes a fun and surprising lady of the house. She is best friends with her sister Jane. 
FITZWILLIAM DARCY- Male. 30. A loving, generous, and smart (if slightly stiff) husband. He is quiet and vigilant and thus sees what others often miss. He knows what being lovelorn is like. 
JANE BINGLEY - Female. 24 and married to Mr. Bingley. She is 7 months pregnant with her first child and is sweet and optimistic as ever. The kindest heart in the house. 
CHARLES BINGLEY – Male. 25. Gracious, happy, and ever-focused on the love of his life, Jane. A good friend and always ready with a smile. 
LYDIA WICKHAM – Female. 17. Flirtatious, braggadocious and selfish. Her marriage to Mr. Wickham is a sham but she will not admit this. She also won’t admit that she desperately needs the love of her family. 
ANNE DE BOURGH- Female. 20’s. Only daughter of the late Lady Catherine de Bourgh. Lived in her mother’s very large shadow, never having to ask for anything or speak for herself, her entire life. Judgmental and impatient, just like her mother.

LONG DAY’S JOURNEY INTO NIGHT 
by Eugene O'Neill
Rehearses: 5/7/19-5/29/19 
Runs:5/29/19-6/30/19 
EDUMUND TYRONE- Male, 23, Son of Mary and James Tyrone. Brother of Jamie Tyrone. Edmund is Eugene O'Neill's double, a sensitive young man who has sailed around the world but now is sick with consumption. Edmund, as a part, has no more stage time or lines than any of the other Tyrones. But he is nonetheless the center of the play: his forgiveness of his brother and father are the play's climax. He has aspirations of becoming a writer. 
MARY TYRONE- Female, 50s-60s, (CAST, Janis Stevens) Wife of James Tyrone. Mother of Edmund and Jamie Tyrone. Mary is a morphine addict, and throughout the course of the day we watch as she sinks farther and farther into a morphine-induced fog. Her hands are nervous, and they reveal her constantly agitated state. She is in deep denial about Edmund's illness. As the play progresses, she retreats farther and farther into the past. 
JAMES TYRONE- Male, 50s-60s, Husband of Mary Tyrone. Father of Edmund and Jamie Tyrone. James Tyrone is a Broadway actor and alcoholic. He is a religious Catholic, although he no longer attends Church. He is appallingly stingy, and his miserliness has led to many problems for the Tyrone family over the years. 
JAMIE TYRONE- Male, 33, -Son of Mary and James Tyrone. Brother of Jamie Tyrone. Jamie is a dissolute alcoholic whoremonger. He is ten years older than Edmund, but he has never amounted to anything. He spends his days in New York chasing whores and drinking. 
CATHLEEN- Female, Early 20s, One of the servants. She is largely oblivious to the troubles of the family for whom she works. She provides comic relief in Act Three by becoming drunk.
