Students rehearse for the upcoming production of “Ernest In Love”

Quinnipiac University‘s Theater for Community will present the musical “Ernest In Love,” from April 25-28 in the Clarice L. Buckman Theater on the Mount Carmel Campus.

Set in Victorian England, “Ernest In Love” is a musical adaptation of Oscar Wilde’s “The Importance of Being Earnest.” The plot revolves around Jack Worthing, an earnest young man who loves the aristocratic Gwendolen Fairfax. Gwendolen says she loves him, however, she thinks he is someone else. Jack’s problems multiply as he desperately tries to hold onto Gwendolen, win over her formidable mother, Lady Bracknell, and protect his young ward, Cecily Cardew, from the advances of his friend, the pleasure loving Algernon Moncrieff.

The play will be performed at 7:30 p.m. on Thursday, April 25, and Friday, April 26; at 4 p.m. on Saturday, April 27; and at 2 p.m. on Sunday, April 28.

Tickets are $12 general admission and $8 for students and senior citizens. There is a special two-for-one discount for Quinnipiac alumni for the Friday and Saturday performances. To reserve tickets, email or call 203-582-3500.
