Auditions for the Red Barn Theatre's "The Importance of Being Earnest"

Oscar Wilde's most celebrated comedy was described by Wilde as "a trivial comedy for serious people."  Jack loves Gwendolyn, Algernon loves Cecily - but both Cecily and Gwendolyn will only marry men named Ernest.  Further complications arrive in the form of a handbag, some tea-cake, and a mysterious invalid named Bunbury.  "Earnest" is a witty satire of manners, full of sly observational humor and typical Wildean epigrams and banter.

"Do you smoke?"
"Well, yes, I must admit."
"I am glad to hear it.  A man should always have an occupation of some kind."

When: May 14th and 15th, from 7 to 9 PM
Where: the Red Barn Theatre, 948 N. Main Avenue
Who we're looking for: 4 women and 5 men, ranging in age from roughly 18 to 70
