Springfield, Ohio - The Department of Theatre and Dance will present Oscar Wilde's classic comedy of wit, "The Importance of Being Earnest," in Chakeres Memorial Theatre, 905 Woodlawn Ave.
Performances are scheduled at 8 p.m. Thursday, Friday and Saturday, April 18-20 and 2 p.m. Sunday, April 21. Tickets are $4 and may be reserved by calling the Service Center Desk at (937) 327-7443.
Subtitled "A Trivial Comedy for Serious People," the play tells the tale of Jack Worthing and Algernon Moncrieff, both of whom have taken to bending the truth in order to add a dash of excitement to their lives. However, their deceptions eventually cross paths, resulting in a series of crises that threaten to spoil their romantic pursuits.
Guest Director Pam Hill will guide the actors in this hilarious satire of Victorian society, which continues to delight audiences around the world a century after it was written.
"The Insider's Guide to Colleges," published by the Yale Daily News, considers Wittenberg's theatre and dance department to be one of the university's top three departments.
