3:00 PM Stage: Pride and Prejudice The outspoken Elizabeth Bennet faces mounting pressure from her status-conscious mother to secure a suitable marriage. But is marriage suitable for a woman of Elizabeth's intelligence and independence? Especially when the irritating, aloof, self-involved… tall, vaguely handsome, mildly amusing, and impossibly aristocratic Mr. Darcy keeps popping up at every turn. Literature's greatest tale of latent love has never felt so theatrical, or so full of life as it does in this effervescent new adaptation. Age limit: 18+

Welcome to Uncle Joe's Donuts! Meet the owner, Ming, who fled to the United States from the Khmer Rouge (Cambodian Civil War) as a teenager. She has big dreams to someday own a restaurant, but what happens when she meets some troubled neighborhood youths? Jake is trying to support his family after his older brother cuts town and leaves him to deal with his old gang. Hope just wants to live her dreams as a dancer, but her parents aren't so supportive. Carrie appears to be strong and confident, but she's still finding herself in some aspects. These four may be broken and lost as individuals, but together they learn about getting second chances and what it means to be a community. Join us as we explore their contemporary backgrounds of being Cambodian Americans!

Along with the play, we will also have fun dance pieces performed by our own CSA members and a guest performance by Khmer Dance Troupe!
