Auditions for The Importance of Being Earnest
Please note, this event has expired.
Audition for Oscar Wilde’s riotous British satire with rampant identity crises!
In this riotous bit of fun in which everyone takes every silly thing far too seriously, Village Arts is taking all stuffy British manners with one lump of sugar or two and a little finger held aloft! The Importance of Being Earnest, by Oscar Wilde, is a bit of satire set in 1890’s England.
Summary: Two men—one from the country and another from the city—are friends who fall in love with women the other disapproves of, because each knows the other to be not entirely good enough to marry his damsel. Neither is truthful nor entirely honest in his pursuit of the perfect woman, but they discover the vital importance of being earnest (or Ernest!), as each vows to change his name for love of the elusive lady.
