The Importance of Being Earnest
"We live, as I hope you know, Mr. Worthing, in an age of ideals." Oscar Wilde's comic masterpiece The Importance of Being Earnest takes the audience on a farcical journey of love affairs and mistaken identities while poking fun at the universal games people play to appear as their perceived social spheres instruct. The Importance of Being Earnest reminds us that we all try to live up to at least some misguided ideals. What could be so absurd about that little reminder? Well, a lot actually.
Written by Oscar Wilde
Directed by Steven Mazzoccone

Book by Marshall Brickman & Rick Elice, Music & Lyrics by Andrew Lippa

A comical feast that embraces the wackiness in every family, features an original story and it's every father's nightmare: Wednesday Addams, the ultimate princess of darkness, has grown up and fallen in love with a sweet, smart young man from a respectable family - a man her parents have never met. And if that wasn't upsetting enough, Wednesday confides in her father and begs him not to tell her mother. Now, Gomez Addams must do something he's never done before - keep a secret from his beloved wife, Morticia. Everything will change for the whole family on the fateful night they host a dinner for Wednesday's "normal" boyfriend and his parents.
