We are proud to present the Tony-Award winning classic by Oscar Wilde, The Importance of Being Earnest. This wonderful, colorful comedy of manners and mistaken identities is truly one of the classic comedies of all time. Most theater-goes agree that it is probably the wittiest play in the English language. The story follows the antics of two wealthy young men who pretend, among other things, that they are both named Ernest in order to impress their beloveds. A surprise ending caps off the evening and all's well that ends well. Our director, Zoe Bright, (who was in the original production of Les Miserables in London) has brought amazing energy and fun to our production and we guarantee you a great night at the theater.

" “Such Fun, Such Color And Such Humor GCT's “The Importance of Being Earnest” Is Family Fantastic!” THE GEEK AUTHORITY -  Lorenzo Marchessi Glendale Center Theatre did it again with an amazingly fun production of Oscar Wilde's “The Importance of Being Earnest” and it has the light-hearted humor of the original text as it is cast with some wonderful performers to delight young and old alike. First performed on February 14th in 1895 at the St James's Theatre in London, it's basically a farcical comedy in which the two main protagonists maintain fictitious persona to escape what appears to be their obligatory social obligations. Working in the environment of Victorian London of the year 1895, the play's takes the subject of marriage, commitment and even love to the extremes and the resulting are satirical of Victorian ways. In other words, things (or people) are not always what they appear to be. Producer Tim Dietlein and director Zoe Bright (who also dazzled us in the play as well) gathered an ensemble of performers that will surprise you with this well-seasoned writing of Wild's while giving it a flavor of smartness that is relevant in today's society. Zoe made it light and fun and let the actor's roll with their personalities with very comical result. Pic 001 – Top L. - Daniel DeYoung, Meghan Lewis – Top R. - Meghan Lewis, Zoe Farnigdale – Bot. L. - Dynell Leigh, Tom Allen – Center Pic. – Full Cast – Bot. R. - Zoe Bright - Grayson Wittenbarger"
