Cabrillo presents Being Earnest
The Cabrillo High School Drama Department presents Oscar Wilde’s The Importance of Being Earnest on Oct. 19, 20, 26, and 27 at 7:30 p.m. at the Cabrillo High School Little Theater, 4350 Constellation Road, in Vandenberg Village.
Joyce Mayhew directs the classic comedy, which involves Jack Worthing, a wealthy man who lives in the country, who invents for himself a mischief-making younger brother, Earnest, as an excuse to escape social obligations and visit his love Gwendolyn in London.
Jack’s best friend, Algernon, soon adopts the persona of Earnest in the hopes of capturing the love of Cecily, Jack’s beautiful ward, just 18. Chaos soon ensues as the two pursue love with women committed to loving a man only with the name of Earnest.
Providing further hilarity is the awkward pair of Miss Prism, Cecily’s uptight governess, and the reverend, an eager Dr. Chasuble. This witty comedy takes place on a whimsical set designed by Lara Schmeiser. Tickets are available at the Lompoc Valley Florist, Texas Cattle Company, and at the Cabrillo High School Activities Office.
Presale ticket prices are $8 for adults and $5 for students. Adult tickets are $10 at the door, and students get in for $5. For more information, visit the CHS Performing Arts website at cabrillochoiranddrama.com.
