For its 10th Annual Senior Show the SPT Summer Youth Program is proud to present The Importance of Being Ernest, Oscar Wilde’s timeless farce of topsy-turvy romance, faked identities, and the sweet celebration of rapier wit.
Six [free] performances June 21, 22, 23, 28 and 29 at the historic Bathhouse Theater on Green Lake. Donations are encouraged, and go to support SPT’s Youth Scholarship Fund.
ABOUT THE IMPORTANCE OF BEING EARNEST
In Wilde’s “Trivial comedy for serious people,” long-time pals Algernon and Jack invent false identities to save themselves from the drudgery of dreary social engagements. Complications arise when the two conspire to woo Gwendolen and Cecily. Both women want nothing more than the hand of a man named “Earnest”—conveniently enough the very name Jack took on to avoid public entanglements. With his inimical facility for language, Wilde skewers nearly every institution under the sun, from marriage and manners to aristocracy and economics. Come see why The Importance of Being Earnest still to speaks audiences as readily now as it did 100 years ago.

Saturday, June 22 @ 7pm, Sunday, June 23 @ 2pm, Friday, June 28 @ 7pm and Saturday, June 29 @ 2pm & 7pm.
