This is a faithful re-telling of the classic novel with a comic twist - watch Elizabeth Bennet and Mr Darcy fall in love all over again, this time filtered through the world of the internet through blogs and chat rooms. Quotes from films and even the voice of Ms. Austen make this a delightful post-modern view of 19th century England, and a new way to experience the classic novel.

3 women, 2 men - Five actors play every role

Welcome to our 2017 season! Check our shows page for information on auditions, casting, rehearsal and performance dates.

Show times are 7:30pm on Friday and Saturday with a matinee at 4pm on Sunday.

Old Church Theater has presented over 30 years of summer productions geared for family entertainment. The actors are local residents from various backgrounds and some have gone on to make a career in the theater world. The theater is open to anyone wishing to act, direct, work backstage, help with set design, ticket sales and more!

We love to share our knowledge about theater craft and invite you to come and share in the fun and work, meet new friends and learn a bit about community theater.


Old Church Theater is now a tax-exempt 501(c)(3) corporation. It has taken us a year to get there. What does this mean to you?

The biggest change for our patrons and supporters is that any gifts or donations you make to Old Church Theater can be tax deductible (depending on your tax status - consult your accountant or tax preparer). If you are interested in donating, please contact us. You may make an unrestricted donation or you may specify a restricted purpose for your donation. Ask us how!

It also means that we are now eligible to apply for grants and other funding sources that were not available to us before. So we'll be tackling projects that were beyond our means until now.
