Witty, intelligent, beautiful, rich, entitled, and spoiled, Emma Woodhouse loves to be a matchmaker, though she has vowed to never marry herself. She has just found her newest "project" -- a sweet, but modest girl named Harriet Smith. Vivacious Emma is determined to find Harriet an impressive suitor, but as she becomes entangled in the romantic lives of her friends and acquaintances, she unwittingly commits the worst mistake a matchmaker can do by falling in love herself!
The cast includes Sara Risner (Emma), Stephen Krusoe (Mr. Knightley), Eric Carlson (Frank Churchill), Emily Gerhard (Jane Fairfax), Bethany Luhrs (Harriet), Wade Livingston (Mr. Woodhouse), David Novinger (Mr. Weston), Colleen Lee (Mrs. Weston) Cole Henson (Mr. Martin), Damon Guerrasio (Mr. Elton), Victoria Pace (Mrs. Elton), Christine Kahane (Miss Bates), Chip Winn Wells (Mrs. Bates) and Lyndsay Krausa (Isabella).
