This weekend is your last chance to see the Theatre Department's The Importance of Being Earnest. The play has been described as a delightfully witty comedy . . . a comic critique of the British aristocracy of the time by director and theatre professor Lisa Kornetsky.
The elaborate costumes worn during the play are a show all their own. Based on the era during which the play occurs the women wear beautiful Victorian garb with corsets, parasols and fans. The men wear proper suits of the period -- a time when everything was about being seen and presenting oneself to everyone who would look. Watch director and theatre professor Lisa Kornetsky talk about what it takes to successfully put together and present a style piece like Oscar Wilde's.For tickets and more information on the 2013 season browse through the @The Rita Cultural Events Schedule or call the Rita Box Office, 262-595-2564.
