Northwest Nazarene University will present Oscar Wilde’s classic play “The Importance of Being Earnest” April 3-6.
The play tells the story of two friends, Jack and Algernon, who both introduce themselves to women as Ernest. Comedy ensues when their fiancées meet each other thinking that they are engaged to the same man. The play stars Matt Davis (Colorado Springs, Colo.) as Jack and Erik Valenti (Redmond, Ore.) as Algernon. Directed by student Charissa Dufour, the production promises to be a great adaptation of a long-time favorite.
Show times for April 3, 4 and 6 are 7:00, along with a Sunday matinee on April 5 at 2:30. All performances will be held on the NNU campus in the Science Lecture Hall, located at 512 Holly St. Tickets are $5 for students and $8 for general admission and are available at the NNU bookstore or at the door.
