This Emmy® and Golden Globe® award-winning hit drama returns for a fifth season of intimately interlaced stories centered on an English country estate — an entertaining formula that has made Downton Abbey the highest-rated drama in PBS history. The acclaimed ensemble cast is joined by guest stars Harriet Walter as Lady Shackleton and Peter Egan as Lord Flintshire, together with new characters played by Richard E. Grant, Anna Chancellor and Rade Sherbedgia.
NOTE: If attendees rent costumes from Disguises (please mention Rocky Mountain PBS Masterpiece Ball), 10% of the proceeds will be donated to Rocky Mountain PBS. Disguises is located at 9797 West Colfax Avenue in Lakewood at the corner of Kipling and Colfax.
