“The Canterville Ghost”

October 21st-23rd at 7pm

Directed by Ms. Jackie Young

A horror comedy written by Oscar Wilde and presented as a radio play, including live sound effects and foley artists. The story follows Horace B. Otis, a gruff American minister and paranormal skeptic, as he goes through the process of buying the Canterville Chase Manor, a haunted estate owned by honor-bound Lord Canterville. A tale of skeleton hands and mysterious noises, The Canterville Ghost is a wild and comedic sight perfect for getting into the Halloween spirit.

“The Truth in Love: A Reality TV adaption of The Importance of Being Earnest” 

November 17th-19th at 7pm

Directed by Mr. Paul Diem

Based off the original script of “The Importance of Being Earnest: A Trivial Comedy for Serious People” by Oscar Wilde, a farcical comedy following John Worting, a young adult using a fictitious persona of his “brother” as deception to avoid social obligations and leave the country. The performance will celebrate and amplify the surface-ness of Wilde’s style by placing it in a modern reality television show filled with drama and duplicity.
