Event Calendar

 
Borrowing the words of Miss Bates, "It is such a happiness when good people get together—and they always do." Check the JASNA and non-JASNA event calendars below for opportunities to join others in celebrating Jane Austen.

Improvised Jane Austen

Improvised Jane Austen2Improvised Jane Austen tells a tale, on the spot, in the style of the most beloved 19th century authoress. In each original story, you may be introduced to headstrong heroines, steadfast suitors, meddling mothers, charming cads, auspicious aunts, silly sisters, boisterous brothers, verbose vicars, fastidious fathers, and any number of Austenesque auteurs! The cast is entirely female, non-binary, and non-conforming identified folk. Empowering the performers to speak truths that easily transcend from Austen's era directly to our own. 

Visit the Improvised Jane Austen website for more information.
