LA CROSSE, Wis. – Take a hilarious romp through Victorian England with the Viterbo University Theatre Department’s production of Oscar Wilde’s The Importance of Being Earnest Friday, Feb. 24 to Sunday, Feb. 26 in the Fine Arts Center Main Theatre.

The Importance of Being Earnest is a delightful “trivial comedy for serious people” that is one of the most enduring and most produced plays ever written. Jack Worthington has been living a double life, as his true identity as a pillar of the community and guardian to Cecily Cardew, and at the same time, as his irresponsible black-sheep brother Ernest. Hilarity follows, with mistaken identities, comic deceptions, and a misplaced handbag in this elegant satire of Victorian society.

These productions of The Importance of Being Earnest are presented by Viterbo University and are sponsored by WIZM 1410 AM.

Performance times are 7:30 p.m. Friday and Saturday Feb. 24-25 and 2 p.m. Sunday, Feb. 26. Tickets are $16 for main floor seating, $15 for lower balcony seating, and $12 for upper balcony seating. For more information, contact the Viterbo University box office at 608-796-3100
