Oscar Wilde's comedy The Importance of Being Earnest puts an interesting mix of characters in Victorian London.
Kamiakin High drama students will tackle the delightfully silly comedy in the school's auditorium. Curtain time is 7 p.m. March 18 with a matinee at 2 p.m. March 19.
The story follows the antics of British blue bloods and their frivolous priorities when it comes to arranged marriages.
The last time Kamiakin tackled Earnest was in 2001, and it was presented in the high school cafeteria before the auditorium with a state-of-the-art stage was built.
"We wanted to do this play again because it is a nice romantic comedy as well as a period piece," said Candy Olsen, who co-directs the play with her husband Rex Olsen.
Lead characters are Joseph Phills as John Worthing, Hunter Spurlock as Algernon, Samantha Wilson as Gwendolen Fairfax, Malin Zilar as Cecily Cardew and Taryn Meacham as Lady Bracknell. Other characters include Kellen McIntyre as Merriman, Tanner Knight as the Rev. Chasuble and Katie Cranston as Miss Prism.
Admission is $7 for adults and $5 for students and seniors.
