“Ernest” Auditions

Stetson University’s Theatre Arts Production of The Importance of Being Earnest by Oscar Wilde information below:

Jack Worthing, has invented an alter ego named Ernest in order to court and win over the lovely Gwendolyn. Unbeknownst to Jack, his good friend Algernon has adopted the same disguise so that he might have an opportunity to meet the lovely young Cecily. When all four characters flee to the country, disguises are revealed, and hilarity ensues. A trivial comedy for serious people.
