The Importance of Being Earnest

When: April 7-24 2010

Oyez! Oyez! Oyez!  I hereby decree that amateur theatre companies will no longer require their actors to use accents for any role. Now that I’ve got that off my chest, I’ll tell you why, despite the mishmash of distracting accents, you should go see The Importance of Being Earnest.  1: Oscar Wilde’s writing is as funny and clever now as it was a hundred years ago. (I daresay you’ll be surprised by the number of Wildeisms you recognize.) 2:There are several  memorable performances in this production. Steven Heisler as the witty cad Algernon and Valerie MacKenzie as the sour-faced aristocrat Lady Bracknell particularly stand out. 3: The costumes show great attention to detail, and the sets make good use of the small stage. 4: Where else can you enjoy a fun evening of entertainment for under $20? –Kate Watson
