The Importance of Being Earnest, a comedy for serious people, by Oscar Wilde, is coming to the Gaslight!

“It’s exciting to see our community coming together to produce high quality theater for all to enjoy,” stated Anissa Stonebarger, Gaslight Board of Director’s Treasurer. “We are looking forward to a successful run of the show! The director and cast have worked diligently to make this a classic production you won’t soon forget”, Stonebarger added.

The cast is made up of seasoned actors as well as individuals taking to the stage for the first time. Lenora Gomes, who portrays Lady Bracknell, is checking one more item off her bucket list. “Now is the time, and the Gaslight Theater is the perfect place. I am enjoying every minute!” Gomes commented. Sophie Kanabuy is no stranger to the Gaslight theater stage. She has performed in A Christmas Carol, End Game, and The Night No One Died. Sophie stated, “I’m allowed to push myself to find the character, and I love that!”

The cast is made up of 6 individuals, all of which would love to see you come out and see how they have developed their characters.
