The Chesapeake High School Drama Club continues its tradition of presenting classics of theater history with the fall production of Oscar Wilde's "The Importance of Being Earnest." Performances are scheduled at 7 p.m. on Nov.
29 and 30 and Dec. 1 in the auditorium.
Penned by the noted Irish novelist and playwright, the play has been a staple in acting companies' repertoires since its premier on the English stage in 1895. Wilde's wit and observant criticism of all levels of society have continued to delight audiences for nearly 100 years.
Cast members include Jack Dourakos, Josh Bokee, Holly Taylor, Alyson Chorba, Monica Thompson, Thomas Strenge, Katie Degentesh, Brandon Reichert and Jerry Shandrowsky. Dan Ortmeyer is directing.
Tickets are $4 for adults, $3 for students and will be sold at the door.
