The Finger Lakes Musical Theatre Festival / Merry-Go-Round Playhouse Inc., headquartered in Auburn, N.Y., presents AUSTEN'S PRIDE: A NEW MUSICAL OF PRIDE AND PREJUDICE at Nazareth College Arts Center's Callahan Theater from tonight, July 13, through July 24 as part of its regional expansion project and dynamic 2016 season. BroadwayWorld has a first look at the cast in action below!

Featuring music, lyrics and book written by Lindsay Warren Baker and Amanda Jacobs, AUSTEN'S PRIDE: A NEW MUSICAL OF PRIDE AND PREJUDICE gives audiences a glimpse into the world of "Pride and Prejudice" through author Jane Austen's eyes.

The show will be directed by Igor Goldin, with music direction by Ian Weinberger and choreography by Jeffry Denman, a Buffalo native.
