‘Earnest’ comes to Chautauqua

By From page B2 | May 09, 2012

Chautauqua Playhouse announces its next show, the classic comedy “The Importance of Being Earnest” by Oscar Wilde, opening on May 4.

Absolutely one of the funniest comedies in the English language, the timeless comedy presents wicked wit and dead-on social satire wrapped in a Victorian confection of dual identities, matters matrimonial and the provenance of a particularly pertinent handbag. Wilde’s exquisitely delicious dialogue and hilarious turns of phrase are an irresistible delivery system for his subversive look at society.

The production is directed by Gil Sebastian and features Lenore Sebastian, Chris Quandt, Kevin Foster, Paul Fearn and a host of other popular Sacramento actors. Set design is by Rodger Hoopman with costumes by Lenore Justman and lighting design by Don Myers.

The show will run on Fridays and Saturdays at 8 p.m. and Sundays at 2 p.m. through June 10. All performances will be held at the Chautauqua Playhouse, 5325 Engle Road in the La Sierra Community Center in Carmichael. Admission is $19 general and $17 students, seniors, children and SARTA members.

Information and tickets are available through the Chautauqua Playhouse website, cplayhouse.org, or call the box office at (916) 489-7529, during business hours.
