The actors of Geauga Lyric Theater will reprise their performance of “Pride & Prejudice” Oct. 13 at Mentor Library’s Main Branch.

Jane Austen’s work has been recreated as movies, miniseries, webisodes and zombie romps, so it’s unsurprising that her stories made their way to the stage.

As part of Austen in Autumn, Geauga Lyric Theater will perform vignettes from Pride & Prejudice at 6:30 p.m. Tuesday, Oct. 13, at our Main Branch.

The actors are reprising their roles from Austen’s classic, which they performed as part of their summer season.

You can see Elizabeth, Jane, Darcy and more during this one-night-only encore at Mentor Public Library.

The performance is free and open to the public. You can register for it on Mentor Library’s website.

We have several other Austen in Autumn programs coming up as well, including our Austen film series. Tonight, we’re hosting a free screening of Clueless (which is a remake and modernization of Austen’s Emma) at Great Lakes Mall Atlas Cinemas.

We also have programs on silhouette artworld history during Austen’s life and Pride and Prejudice and Zombies party for teens on Oct. 12. Teens can practice their skulking and celebrate Halloween a little early when they party like the undead.
