Robin Thompson as Edward Rochester is seen with Hunter Thiers as Jane Eyre in the 413 Repertory Theater production of "Jane Eyre."

ESCONDIDO – 413 Repertory Theater opened a play production of "Jane Eyre," Sept. 5, at the Grand Tea Room in downtown Escondido.

Based on the classic novel by Charlotte Bronte, orphaned Jane Eyre overcomes her early abusive and lonely experiences to become an accomplished governess at Thornfield, the mysterious home of Mr. Edward Rochester.

There she is drawn to the odd master of the house but their blooming future is destroyed by a looming secret from his past: a secret that forces Jane to flee Thornfield into poverty and illness.

Eventually Jane overcomes all to find redemption to become an independent and wealthy woman with family and true love.

Adapted for the stage by Christina Calvit, this adaptation originally premiered off-Broadway in Chicago to rave reviews.

413 Repertory Theater's production of "Jane Eyre" will feature an immersive dinner theater experience complete with a full cast of professional San Diego actors, beautiful 1830s reproduction costumes and a full fall-themed high tea provided by the Grand Tea Room.

General admission tickets are $69 for all night performances and $82 for Sunday matinees. Limited VIP seating is also available which includes front row seats and show-themed merchandise gift bags.

The production will run two more weekends, Sept. 12-22, with performances Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays at 7 p.m., and Sundays at 1 p.m. and 6 p.m.
