STAGE TUBE: Highlights from THE IMPORTANCE OF BEING EARNEST at Laurel Mill Playhouse


THE IMPORTANCE OF BEING EARNEST by Oscar Wilde continues this weekend at Laurel Mill Playhouse, directed by Rocky Nunzio, with stage manager and producer Spencer Kate and executive producer Maureen Rogers. Click below for highlights from the hilarious production!

THE IMPORTANCE OF BEING EARNEST stars Jim Berard as Merriman/Lane, Nick Cherone as Jack, Rosalie Daelemans as Lady Bracknell, Tracy Davidson as Miss Prism, Tim Evans as Chasuble, Kyle Kelley as Algernon, Jenn Robinson as Gwendolen and Julie Rogers as Cecily.

THE IMPORTANCE OF BEING EARNEST is the most renowned of Oscar Wilde's comedies. It's the story of two bachelors, John 'Jack' Worthing and Algernon 'Algy' Moncrieff, who create alter egos named Ernest to escape their tiresome lives. They attempt to win the hearts of two women who, conveniently, claim to only love men called Ernest. The pair struggle to keep up with their own stories and become tangled in a tale of deception, disguise and misadventure. The elaborate plot ridicules Victorian sensibilities with some of the best loved, and indeed bizarre, characters to be found on the modern stage.

Remaining show dates: Thursday, June 23 at 8pm; Friday, June 24 at 8pm; Saturday, June 25 at 8pm; and Sunday, June 26 at 2pm. Tickets are $20 for general admission. Admission for students (12 and under), active duty military and seniors (65 and over) is $15. Tickets can be purchased by going to
