Come see "The Importance of Being Earnest"...final weekend 4/26 and 4/27 (7 pm) and 4/28 (2 pm)! Tickets available at www.communityplayersofhobbs.com or at the door!

 

Tickets are on sale for "The Importance of Being Earnest"

Tickets are now on sale for the hilarious farcical comedy "The Importance of Being Earnest", an Oscar Wilde play directed by Jonathan Bertschinger ("Line").

Working within the social conventions of late Victorian London, the characters maintain fictitious personae in order to escape burdensome social obligations.

A long time audience favorite, "Earnest" has been revived as recently as 2011 on Broadway, and been adapted three times for the silver screen.

All seats $10. Tickets can be purchased via the ticket icon on the left side of our website. Show dates are April 18, 19, 20, 26, 27 (7 PM), and matinee show April 28 (2 PM).

Don't miss "The Importance of Being Earnest"!
