Pride & Prejudice Presented By 4th Wall Theatre Company

This holiday season brings the Houston premiere of one of America's most-produced playwrights, the talented Kate Hamill and her raucous adaptation of Jane Austen's Pride & Prejudice.

This holiday season brings the Houston premiere of one of America's most-produced playwrights, the talented Kate Hamill and her raucous adaptation of Jane Austen's PRIDE AND PREJUDICE. Hamill penned the Off-Broadway smash adaptation of SENSE AND SENSIBILITY that ran for nearly a year at BEDLAM Theatre in NYC to rave reviews. In PRIDE AND PREJUDICE, eight actors bring Austen's most famous literary classic to life in a rollicking, festive evening of pure theatricality.

The classic story is that of the outspoken Elizabeth Bennet, who 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?

4th Wall’s production features a cast and crew full of Houston favorites, including actors Justin Doran, Philip Hayes, Philip Lehl, Leslie Lenert, Rachael Logue, Courtney Lomelo, Jeff McMorrough, and Amy Mire, alongside director Kim Tobin-Lehl, scenic designer Ryan McGettigan, lighting designer Christina Gianneli, sound designer Michael Mullins, costume designer Paige Wilson, properties designer Tina Montgomery, and choreographer Krissy Richmond.

4th Wall Theatre Company’s production of “Pride and Prejudice” is generously sponsored by The Liberty Group. It will run November 29 – December 22, 2018, at Studio 101, Spring Street Studios, 1824 Spring Street, Houston, TX 77007. Shows run at 7:30pm on Thursdays through Saturdays and at 3:00pm on Sundays. Tickets run from $17 to $53, with a Pay-What-You-Can performance Monday, December 17. There will be cast talkbacks following the Sunday matinees on December 9 and December 16. The play contains some adult language and themes.

Tickets are available on 4th Wall’s website,

First Suburb

Five preteens teeter on the brink of adolescence when a
shocking and violent act interrupts their insular world of personal struggles
and triumphs. Catastrophic favorite Chana Porter takes us back to the early
’90s in a suburban planned community, the first of its kind in America, for a
subversive, mischievous, and oh-so-familiar (or is it?) look at
childhood. The world premiere of FIRST SUBURB follows last season’s highly
lauded world premiere of Porter’s LEAP AND THE NET WILL APPEAR.

Directed by Lauren Hainley, and produced
by special arrangement with Nicholas Garelick.

Thursdays, Fridays
and Saturdays November 8 to 17, 8:00 pm

, 2018) - Company OnStage presents
{adjective}[noun], by Nicholas
Garelick, and
directed by Lauren Hainley.

 Audience Advisory: Due to mature
themes and adult situations, this show is appropriate for people ages 16 and
up, Plutonians who have passed the time of the Snurggle, and talking orange
cats in bowties.

Absurdist.  Deconstructionist.  Sagittarian.  The works of award-winning playwright Nicholas Garelick have delighted audiences throughout Houston for years.  A graduate of the University of Houston and former President of Scriptwriters/Houston, Nicholas came into the theatre world through the ancient medium of Dungeons & Dragons, and his skill at world-building and an altered view on society have led to some of the most thought-provoking mirth since jesters became obsolete with the invention of the flute.


Presented here in a theatrical symphony of laughter and passion are a specially curated selection of some of his favorite short works.  Filled with boundless hilarity, heart-wrenching beauty, and an almost post-sane level of the preposterous, this limited engagement is not one to be missed!


Included are some of Nicholas’ most iconic works, including Catching Falling Stars, Death Station Dance Revolution, and Map of the Atoms of the Universe, along with some brand new material, and favorites that have yet to be performed for a Houston audience.


With an unparalleled company of actors (Kacie Adams, Audrey Burkhart, Dano Colon, Ty Fisher, Aaron Garrett, Elizabeth Grant, Bailey Hampton, Renata Smith, and Todd Thigpen) and direction from the adequate Lauren Hainley, there is a non-zero chance this will be the best {noun} you've had since [life event]!

The Company OnStage Theater was founded in 1977 by
Joyce Randall-McNally, a former associate director of the Alley Theater, along
with her husband Hank McNally. After being displaced from its home of 33 years
at the now defunct Westbury Square shopping center, Company OnStage has moved
to its new performance home on the grounds of Salem Evangelical Lutheran Church.
The Company OnStage is a community theater in every sense of the word. We are
an organization that is 100% volunteer driven - we are members of the community
coming together from all walks of life to provide a service to the community.
Every actor, every director, every member of the production team, every usher,
every box office volunteer, every donor, every patron IS The Company OnStage.
We are committed to serving the community by offering professional quality
performances of contemporary and classic theater for children and adults in an
intimate setting at affordable prices.
