CAMPBELLSVILLE, Ky. – The tickets for Campbellsville
University’s theater production, “The Importance of Being Earnest,” a Victorian
era comedy by Oscar Wilde, are now on sale.

The show
times and dates of the show are as follows: Thursday, Feb. 23, Friday, Feb. 24
and Saturday, Feb. 25 at 7 p.m., with a Sunday, Feb. 26 performance at 3 p.m. –
all in the Russ Mobley Theater in the Alumni Building at 114 University Drive,
Campbellsville.

Jack Worthing, the play’s protagonist, is a pillar of the
community in Hertfordshire and has responsibilities of being a major landowner
and justice of the peace; with tenants, farmers, and a number of servants and
other employees all dependent on him.

For years, he has also pretended to have an irresponsible
black-sheep brother named Ernest who leads a scandalous life in pursuit of
pleasure and is always getting into trouble of a sort that requires Jack to
rush grimly off to his assistance. No one but Jack knows that he himself is
Ernest. The play goes into the double life that Jack lives and how it may come
back to haunt him.
