Earnest_Web.pngThe Importance of Being Earnest

by Oscar Wilde

Adapted & Directed by Dan Smith

When Jack and Algernon invent alter egos named “Ernest” hijinks ensue. This classic comedy of manners satirizes the Victorian era especially through one of the most famous characters in the theatrical lexicon-- Lady Bracknell.

For The Importance of Being Earnest-- we paired with Strange Matter Coffee Co. They have delicious treats perfect for creating your own tea party. During the run of the show we will be giving away free food vouchers. You can also stop by their stores for a signature iced tea made specifically for this show. 

The Summer Circle stage is an outdoor performance venue located between the Kresge Art Building and the Auditorium on the MSU Campus. Free parking is available across the street. In the event of rain, the performances will be moved into the Fairchild Theatre. 

All performances are free and open to the public. Theatregoers can arrive early to grab a Summer Circle seat next to the stage or bring their own chairs for casual lawn seating. Attendees are encouraged to bring a picnic to enjoy during the show or buy a Food Truck treat! See you at the circle!
