In the Wings: The Importance of Being Earnest. Meet Bryce Robinson.

Bryce Robinson plays Algernon Moncrieff in The Importance of Being Earnest, the third production of the 2008-2009 Civic Youth Theatre season at Civic Theatre of Greater Lafayette. The play was written by Oscar Wilde.

Bryce auditioned for the show because he loves the play.

"It's also fun to participate in a Civic Theatre show," he said.

He explained who Algernon is and what he wants in the show.

"Algernon wants to marry Cecily," he said. "He turns on his charm and does everything he can to get her to fall in love with him. His love for Cecily is different than what he feels for other girls."

The Importance of Being Earnest opens April 3 and runs through April 5. Friday and Saturday evening shows begin at 7:00 p.m.; Saturday and Sunday afternoon shows begin at 2:30 p.m. Tickets are $10 for adults, $5 for youth. For more information about the show, call 765-423-PLAY (7529) or visit Civic Theatre of Greater Lafayette's Web site.
