SANTA MONICA, Calif., Nov. 30, 2010 /PRNewswire/ --


You know this isn't going to be just another party when Jane Austen's on the guest list. A horse and carriage greet you. Guests mingle in their Regency costumes all to benefit Arts Education at The Eli and Edythe Broad Stage. In the days of Jane Austen, society would gather in their Regency finery to feast and frolic, converse and be clever, and enjoy the company of their friends and social acquaintances. That is what we intend to do at our first Winter Feast & Frolic. There will be frivolities of Jane Austen society circa 1800. The evening will begin with cocktails and savories, and then move into the theater for the most riotous show of improvisational Jane Austen with the Impro Theatre followed by dinner, duels, jig dancing and waltzing into the night.


Broad Stage Artistic Chair Dustin Hoffman, Actress Jamie Lee Curtis, Actor Michael York, Stephen Collins (7th Heaven and No Ordinary Family), Eli and Edythe Broad, Austin Beutner (Deputy Major) and additional celebrity guests.
