The Crazy Cowgirls of Pemberley Ranch are coming to Alexander Galt Regional High School. From April 11 to the 13, the country/western retelling of Jane Austen’s classic Pride and Prejudice will be presented six times on the stage of the Alexander Galt Regional High School Auditorium. “It’s very much country/western, which is always a hit here with our community,” said Olivia Louise Grenier, Galt drama teacher and the play’s director, explaining that this particular adaptation is so brand-new that she is not sure it has ever been performed before. Reflecting on the fact that last year’s lineup of plays involved a complicated musical and a very heavy drama, Grenier said that part of the appeal of Pemberley Ranch was that it offered a script that was full of fun.
