    PRIDE AND PREJUDICE
    Performed by Hutchison’s upper school girls this all female cast performs February 9 and 10 at 7:00 pm and February 11 at 2:00 pm.  All of the wit and romance of Jane Austen's classic 1813 novel come to life in this refreshingly fast-paced and engaging adaptation. When the independent-minded Elizabeth meets the handsome but enigmatic Mr. Darcy, she is determined not to let her feelings triumph over her own good sense -- but the truth turns out to be slipperier than it seems. In a society where subtle snubs and deceit proliferate, is it possible for Elizabeth and Darcy to look beyond his pride and her prejudice?

  • 1000 Cranes and Hana's Suitcase

    Hutchison's Middle School Play Auditions will take place on February 13 and 14 in the Wiener Theater. 


    Thank you so much to everyone who came out to audition for A Thousand Cranes and Hana’s Suitcase last week. Mr. Rapp, Ms. Caskey, and I were amazed at the level of talent! Your auditions were thoughtful and creative and we cannot wait to start working on the show with each of you! We have an exciting adventure ahead of us together - mounting two shows to play in repertory. (Repertory means they will share the same stage and design team.) Hutchison has never performed shows in repertory with our middle schoolers!  Fun!

    Remember, both casts will play a part in each show but the majority of rehearsals will be within the show you have been cast. This is going to be a meaningful, powerful, creative experience. We are holding our first cast meeting and read-throughs on Wednesday, February 28, from 2:30-5:00 pm.

    We are so glad you are going on this artistic journey with us.
