The Importance of Being Earnest

November 18-20

Oscar Wilde’s classic is a delight from the first cucumber sandwich on as Jack’s double life catches up with him. Two charming young ladies–sophisticated Gwendoline from the city and naive Cecily from the country–are in love with Earnest Worthing. But there is no such person as Earnest Worthing. Gwendoline thinks Jack is Earnest, and Cecily thinks Algy is Earnest. Each girl swears that she could never love a man who wasn’t named Earnest. In the midst of all the confusion comes Lady Bracknell, who doesn’t like the idea of anybody loving anybody. The problems are resolved in an extremely charming and quite unexpected way as Jack and Algernon discover the importance of being earnest while answering to the name of Earnest.

S.W.A.P stands for student written, acted, and produced and is the Olathe North Theatre Showcase of student written work. Any Olathe North Student is welcome to write a 10 minute script and submit it to be performed as a part of this showcase. Student Directors will cast the scripts chosen so that student actors are then acting in the student written scripts. Student Technical Directors will lead student theatre technicians in producing the shows. This is a great production to show off all of the amazing ways that students at Olathe North can use their talents in a theatrical way.
