Event Description
Jane Eyre, the Musical in the musical retelling of Charlotte Bronte's classic novel of love and forgiveness. The story concerns Jane, who becomes employed as governess at the estate of Edward Rochester, a man who seems to have everything but needs the love, forgiveness, and insight that Jane provides.

"At the heart of all the greatest love stories is a pair of journeys. For a love story to be truly great both the lovers must be unalterably changed by the exposure to each other on their journeys through the story. The greatest stoke of genius in the novel, Jane Eyre, is the way in which Brontë interweaves the journey of Jane and Rochester so that they change each other in this unalterable manner."
-John Caird

Don't miss this beautiful musical about the power of forgiveness, faith, and love!
