Emma -- all for One productions
Posted on January 23, 2012 at 4:19:46 am by Kayleen R.
When I saw that the Fort Wayne-based theater production company all for One productions, inc. was performing the Classic Jane Austen novel Emma, I was thrilled! The movie by this title starring Gwyneth Paltrow is one of my favorite renditions of a Jane Austen novel. The plot revolves around misguided (comical) attempts at matchmaking on the part of a young, wealthy single woman who apparently has nothing better to do than help people fall in love. The plot provokes 21st century thought. Was Emma justified in meddling in her friends’ love lives, even when it proved painful for those involved? Would love naturally occur between two people if they were left alone to meet and get to know each other? Should friends in 2012 even try to ‘fix people up’? Audiences will have the chance to see Emma in a new adaptation by playwright Jon Jory on the weekends of February 3-5 and February 10-12 at the Allen County Public Library Auditorium (Note: Most all for One performances are held here). On Fridays and Saturdays curtain rises at 8:00 PM; on Sundays, 2:30 PM. Doors open 30 minutes before curtain. This would be a fun show to attend with girlfriends, as a Valentine’s Day gift, or as and family outing. Rated G for all audiences. Ticket prices through February 2: Adults $12; Senior (60+) $10; students & groups (10+) $8 At the door tickets prices: Adult $15, Senior (60+) $12, students $10. Call 622.4610 to obtain advance tickets and for more information. Insider's Tip: Do not park in the library’s parking garage as it becomes unavailable after the library closes. Parking is available on the streets near the library and the two street-level library parking lots, one with an entrance on Harrison Street and the other on Wayne Street.
