You can watch Fairfield High School students perform a classic Oscar Wilde play this weekend.

The school's performance of Oscar Wilde’s "The Importance of Being Earnest" opens at 7 p.m. Friday, April 25, in the auditorium, according to a release from the school. 

A second show is at 7 p.m. Saturday, April 26.

Here's the plot of the show according to Andrew Muth, director:

When the beautiful and proper Gwendolen Fairfax (Alexis Turner) confesses to Jack Worthing (Jonah Yoder) that she can love none without the name of Earnest, Jack must set out to become Earnest himself.

He soon finds that his name is not all that stands in his way, Gwendolen’s Wagnerian mother Lady Bracknell (Megan Ulrich) is a formidable foe to all those that cross her. Along with Jack’s ward Cecily Cardew (Kathryn Hochstetler) and his scoundrel friend Algernon Moncrieff (Noah Corbin), Jack discovers the vital importance of being Earnest.

Tickets are $7 for adults and $5 for children and students. Tickets can be purchased at the door or at the Fairfield High School front office.
