We are delighted to say that CODA will once more be performing at the bandstand at Croydon’s Wandle Park this summer, with… Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen, adapted by Jon Jory.
CODA strives to make theatre as accessible as possible in the borough. We are aware that the cost of tickets for even community theatre may put off those that are struggling financially at the moment, even as we ourselves face rising production costs. For Pride and Prejudice, we are offering a “pay what you can” performance on Wednesday 27 July, for those who are unable to meet the usual ticket price of £13.00 or £14.00 for the rest of the week’s performances. Audience members will be able to select their own ticket price from £1 upwards for this performance. If you are however able to pay slightly more than the standard price for a ticket, this would also be most welcome and help not only to cover our costs, but also help other people access the joys of live theatre and this wonderful story.

Characters & Audition Pieces
|Charles Bingley |
Darcy’s wealthy best friend. He is pleasant, easy going, and well intentioned. He is uncaring about class differences.
|George Wickham (can also be a Ball Guest) |
Handsome militia officer who attracts Elizabeth initially but revelations about his past and his true nature brings her closer to Darcy.
|Mr Collins |
Pompous and idiotic clergyman who stands to inherit the Bennet property. Longwinded, rarely expressing himself in anything other than essay form.
