Announcing the cast of The Importance of Being Earnest

Director Kyle Borcz has announced the cast of Oscar Wilde's "The Importance of Being Earnest," the first show in the 2014-2015 MainStage season at Civic Theatre of Greater Lafayette.

"The Importance of Being Earnest" will run Friday, August 29 through Saturday, September 13 at the historic Monon Depot Theatre at 320 N. 5th Street in downtown Lafayette – the corner of 5th Street and North Street.

Tickets are $18 for adults, $15 for seniors and $10 for youth age 18 and under. You can purchase tickets in advance by visiting or calling 765-423-7529.

A rousing romantic escapade and absurd comedic masterpiece about class and etiquette. In a stylish send-up of Victorian courtship and manners, charming bachelors Jack and Algernon lead double lives to woo the two young ladies who have won their hearts. When they are caught in their lies, the stage is set for clever manipulations and hilarious confusion. Oscar Wilde dishes up scathing social satire, effervescent wit, and high farce, making this one of the most cherished plays in the English language.

The mission of Civic Theatre of Greater Lafayette is to enhance the artistic and cultural environment of Greater Lafayette through theatrical productions and educational opportunities.
