Live Theater in the Library!

importance of being earnest Join us on Friday, April 27th at 8:00pm for a staged reading of Oscar Wilde's The Importance of Being Earnest. A group of professional actors and actresses will be performing this classic Victorian comedy in the library's Meeting Room. Admission is free, and all ages are welcome. No registration is required.

Don't know what a staged reading is? Our performers won't be standing still! Everything will be acted out, just like in a regular play. The only difference between a staged reading and a traditional performance is that in a staged reading, the actors are not off-script. You will see them reference their scripts while they move about the room.

Thank you, Community Read Participants
