The Theater Department announces open auditions and crew positions for the spring productions of our 2017-2018 season, “Secrets and Surprises.”
Directed by Professor Michael O’Neill
First performed in 1895, this “trivial comedy for serious people” may be the funniest play in the English language. Not only does Wilde demonstrate his legendary wit in every line, he also has brought his characters to life with decency and warmth. Each role requires a semblance of a British accent; women will be corseted; men will wear hats and gloves.
Those auditioning should be familiar with the play. You will be asked to do cold readings from various sections at auditions. For a PDF copy of The Importance of Being Earnest, click here: The Importance of Being Earnest
