Md., April 4, 2018—Carroll Community College invites the
community to escape into performances of Oscar Wilde’s classic British comedy, The Importance of Being Earnest.
Performances will take place in the Theater in the Scott
Center on April 26, 27, and 28, 2018 at 7:30 p.m. A closing
performance will take place on April 29 at 2 p.m.
Richard Sautter is the guest director of this hilarious
adventure through high society. In the play, morals take a back seat to humor
and witty dialogue. “Because we are
so far removed from 1895, we don’t have to take the shallowness and self-interest
of the characters personally,” says Sautter. “Instead, we can glory in their seemingly nonsensical
pronouncements and delight in the social proprieties that make the expression
of almost any emotion, most of all love, seem just a little ridiculous.”
In the words of playwright Wilde, "We should treat all
the trivial things of life seriously, and all the serious things of life with
sincere and studied triviality."
Tickets may be purchased for $10 for Adults. Senior
Citizens, and college students, faculty, and staff with ID may purchase tickets
Tickets can be purchased online:
are also available for purchase at the Theater just prior to performances. The
box office will open 45 minutes before each show starts. Seating is available
approximately 30 minutes prior to the start of each show.
Hartman has created costume designs. Hartman recently designed the costumes for
the College’s past production of the play 1984.
