THE IMPORTANCE OF BEING EARNEST Comes to the Common
The Walpole Players will be presenting a staged reading of Oscar Wilde’s The Importance of Being Earnest, this Saturday, September 12, at 5:00 PM, on the Walpole Town Common.
This witty comedy about the trivialities of late Victorian society is sure to be a lot of fun! The performance is free and open to the public, but please remember to bring your choice of seating (lawn chair, blanket, etc.).
Since this performance is outdoors, we will be using a sound system so that the actors can be heard more easily. Since this is a staged reading, the actors will be in costume and will move around in the designated stage area, but they will be using their scripts.
In case of inclement weather, the performance will take place the following Saturday, September 19. If there is any question regarding the weather, a decision will be made by 2:00 PM on the day of the performance and will be posted in our website: TheWalpolePlayers.org.
Please note that all social distancing requirements and guidelines will apply at the performance. Family/friend groups should seat themselves at least six feet from other groups; if it is not possible to maintain a six-foot separation while seated, masks must be worn. If attendance reaches 100 people or more, per the governor’s Emergency Order #63, masks must be worn. Audience members will be responsible for following these guidelines.
