Spotlight opens 'The Importance of Being Earnest'

Spotlight Theater Company's production of Oscar Wilde's play "The Importance of Being Earnest" opens 7 p.m. July 8 in the newly renovated Frye Auditorium at the Cleveland County Fairgrounds.

"The Importance of Being Earnest" is a parody of Victorian life and manners. The two young men of the show, Jack and Algernon, are interested in two young women, Gwendolen and Cecily, who wish only to be involved with someone named "Ernest" ? who might actually be someone else.

Spotlight's production features leading men Chris Fairchild as Jack and Joshua Maxey as Algernon. Their romantic counterparts are Sara Clark as Gwendolen and Katherine Robertson as Cecily. Robertson is also in charge of producing the Victorian costumes, right down to the ladies' corsets.

Rounding out the cast are Les Anderson, Rebecca Box, Amanda Clay, Ralph Doty and Jacklyn Faulkner. Robert Jackson directs, assisted by voice and diction coach Anna Holloway and stage manager Samantha Summers.

The show runs Friday and Saturday evenings at 7 July 8 through 23. Tickets are $5 at the door.

Formed in 2004 by a group of Norman performers, Spotlight Theater Company's mission is to provide an outlet for artists to display their craft and to inspire, entertain and educate the community. They are sponsored in part by the Norman Arts Council Hotel Tax Grant Program.
