Sense and Sensibility
It’s opening weekend for Civic Theatre’s playful adaptation of Jane Austen’s Sense and Sensibility at Carmel’s Tarkington Theatre. It’s the timeless tale set in gossipy 18th century England, but this version is presented through a fresh female voice. The show begs the question: When reputation is everything, how do you follow your heart? Audience members can expect bold theatricality and plenty of humor.
