Applause Musicals Society present their 41st "musical in concert": Ernest In Love (1960).
** PLAYING May 2, 3 and 4 **
May 2 @ 2pm (seniors matinee - free tea/cookies)
May 2/3/4 @ 7pm
An enticing musical version of a classic theatrical staple, Ernest In Love is based on Oscar Wilde's sparkling play about social hypocrisy among the creme de la creme of Victorian England. Two young gentlemen well versed in the art of "Bunburying" (using a fictitious relative as an alibi to circumvent the responsibilities of proper social behavior) are beside themselves when they find their innocent fabrications taking over their love lives.
A faithful adaptation of Wilde's comic masterpiece, Ernest In Love features all of its much-beloved characters and most of the same production demands, with the addition of a small band. The clever, tuneful score is the perfect complement to Wilde's incomparable wordplay and immortal witticisms in this delightful reworking of what has been called "the funniest play in the English language."
Tickets $20 in advance (same price for 15 years!) or $25 day of/door (except seniors matinee which is $10).
