University Theatre presents the holiday production of “Miss Bennet: Christmas at Pemberley” at 7:30 p.m. Dec. 7 through Dec. 15, excluding the Dec. 9 performance beginning at 2 p.m., in the John Wright Theatre in the Speech Arts building.

“Miss Bennet,” a sequel to Jane Austen’s “Pride and Prejudice,” continues the story of the Bennet sisters, only this time with bookish middle-sister Mary as its unlikely heroine. When the family gathers for Christmas at Pemberley, Mr. Darcy’s estate, an unexpected guest sparks Mary’s hopes for independence, an intellectual match and possibly even love.

Tickets are $17 for adults; $15 for Fresno State faculty, staff, alumni and military; and $10 for students. Parking is free after 4 p.m. Fridays through Sundays and $4 Tuesdays through Thursdays.
