Theatre Huntsville is excited to present our 2018-19 Season opener – EMMA – adapted by Michael Bloom from the book by Jane Austen

Pledging never to marry, the mischievous Emma Woodhouse is nevertheless the “matchmaker of Highbury.” Her newest project, Harriet Smith, has already received a proposal, but Emma insists she marry the eligible vicar Mr. Elton, while, an older family friend, Mr. Knightley, warns her to give up matchmaking. When Emma discovers Mr. Elton is more interested in her, she is forced to fend him off and find another suitor for Harriet. Highbury welcomes two new guests, a mysterious Jane Fairfax and the charming Frank Churchill, and Emma finds herself falling just a little in love with him.
