‘Jane Eyre’ Opens DreamWrights’ 2018 Season

DreamWrights Center for Community Arts kicks off its 2018 season with Charlotte Bronte’s classic story, Jane Eyre.

In author Charlotte Bronte’s classic story, Jane Eyre survives a meager childhood to be employed at Thornfield as governess to the spoiled ward of an absentee guardian. Sparks fly when Mr. Rochester returns from abroad, but Jane’s trials continue as she searches for love and belonging without sacrificing her true self.

Guest Director, Jessica Crowe, says she’s a big fan of classic literature and is “beyond excited” to direct the production. In a recent press release, Crowe said, “Jane is such a strong character with a moral core that never waivers.  I am eager to have a chance to share her lessons with the community in my own unique way.”

Crow believes audiences will enjoy DreamWrights’ version of these timeless characters, the lessons found within the story, and the unique set design.  “I hope that everyone will see how important it is to be true to yourself.  It is very easy to let society shape who you are, but it is much more rewarding to stand strong in the face of adversity.  Always listen to your heart, and remember that love and forgiveness are gifts that should always be given graciously.”

Jane Eyre opens Friday, February 2 and runs February 2, 3, 8, 9, and 10 at 7 p.m. and February 3, 10,  and 11 at 3 p.m.

Tickets may be purchased online at or by calling 717-848-8623.

Advance seats cost $10 for general, $15 for reserved. Seats purchased at the door cost an additional $2.

Advance reservations at no additional cost are required for a touch tour and audio description for those with sight challenges on February 10 at 3 p.m.

Jane Eyre is suitable for all ages.
