Get tickets for Oscar Wilde comedy

Published on: February 09, 2009

Lone Star College-CyFair’s spring season kicks off with one of Oscar Wilde’s famous and popular comedies “The Importance of Being Earnest” on stage Feb. 26 through March 8.

Set in England during the late Victorian period, the play’s humor derives from characters maintaining fictitious identities to escape unwelcome social obligations. Replete with colorful characters and witty dialogue, Wilde pokes riotous fun at the foibles and hypocrisy of Victorian society, through a series of zany and unlikely situations and events.

Claire Hart-Palumbo is directing this play featuring guest artist Sheryl Croix and students Sean Dalton, Stewart D. Gaitan, Chase Kinsella, Becca Rolater, Elizabeth Scholl, Genevieve Simmons, Jenna Simmons and Brandon Wernick.

Performances, set for 7:30 p.m. Thursday, 8 p.m. Fridays and Saturdays and 3 p.m. Sunday, will be held in the Main Stage Theatre, located in the Center for the Arts building on the Barker Cypress campus at 9191 Barker Cypress.

Tickets are $12 for adults, $10 for seniors and $5 for students with ID. Group rates are available.
