As audiences continue to swoon over Jane Austen’s Pride and Prejudice and ticket demand is strong, the NAC English Theatre recently added four more performances:
Sunday, December 9 at 2 p.m.
Tuesday, December 11 at 7:30 p.m.
Wednesday, December 12 at 2 p.m.
and Wednesday, December 12 at 7:30 p.m.
On the heels of this amazing news, and to celebrate the artists and audiences who have made Pride and Prejudice such a roaring success, the NAC English Theatre announced that the Wednesday, December 12 at 2 p.m. matinee will be a special benefit performance, with all proceeds going to the Actors’ Fund of Canada and the Ottawa Food Bank. This marks the second year in a row that the NAC’s English Theatre Department has dedicated the proceeds of one performance during the holiday season to charity.
Tickets for the benefit performance are $35.50.
So if you're looking to take an early afternoon on Wednesday December 12, come down to the NAC, catch a wonderful production and support two great causes!
