Jill Anderson to portray Charlotte Brontë in local performance

Jill AndersonAlbion Area Arts Council will present actress Jill Anderson in the play, Bronte, at 3 p.m., Saturday, April 12th, at the UCC/Congregational Church in Albion.

In this one-woman play by William Luce, Charlotte Brontë returns home from the funeral of her last remaining sibling and begins life alone with her father in their remote North England parsonage. She reflects on the remarkable incidents, triumphs, tragedies and relationships that have brought her to the present moment and looks toward the future with hope and courage. It is an inspiring story filled with great humor, dazzling imagination and deep poignancy.

Jill Anderson, who has ties to the Albion area, has been seen in the Nebraska Shakespeare Festival, the Blue Barn Theatre, Opera Omaha and the Omaha Community Playhouse, where her roles have included Annie Sullivan in “The Miracle Worker” and Millie in “Thoroughly Modern Millie.” Jill’s performance Saturday will be followed by a Q & A session.
