Courtland Arts Center is set to host the second annual community theatre production April 15-17. For more information regarding tickets, contact Tanner Johnson at the Swedish American State Bank 785-374-4231. 

This year's production is Oscar Wilde's The Importance of Being Earnest. The theatre company will be presenting a modernized version of this classic comedic work. Wilde's iconic flare for comedic situations and witty, irreverent dialogue inspired the writings of numerous humorists, and provided a template for British farce and American sitcoms. 

Being Earnest is a stylish satire of high society featuring mistaken identities, misguided lovers, overbearing relatives, and one misplaced handbag. The director describes the play as, “a cross between Downton Abbey and Monty Python.” 

Featured cast in this year’s production include Steve Benne, Tony Tebow, Rana Cline, Amanda Reisenweber, Jessica Tebow, Barb Langston, Shannon Langston, and Elijah Moore. The three performances will be held at the Courtland Arts Center. The cast and crew of The Importance of Being Earnest hope to see you there!
