The Importance of Being Earnest 

by Oscar Wilde

Auditions: Tuesday, August 15, 2017 in the auditorium 3:30-5 (the second Tuesday of the 2017-18 school year)


The Show: October 26, 27 and 28.  You must also be available for rehearsals on October 20 and 21.  This is during fall break so make sure to schedule any vacations around these dates as these rehearsals will be mandatory.

About the show: The play is full of the kind of witty humor that Oscar Wilde is rightly famed for – there is word play, sarcasm and great farcical comedy. There are also serious issues underlying the humor – the theme of marriage, for love, for money and for social standing, is very strong. The idea of appearing respectable while living a secret, more hedonist life, is designed to critique Victorian morality.This play is a COMEDY.

What to prepare:  Memorize and prepare one of the following monologues.  All characters have an upper class British accent, so please prepare the piece with the accent.  You must be memorized and well prepared.  Here is a link to the film version.  You can listen and imitate to help develop the dialect:
