CENTER HIGHLIGHT: This Wednesday you will learn The Importance of Being Earnest!

The latest FTT performance starts Wednesday in the Decio. Still need much help! Check it out as it should be a great show. Here is the official FTT press release:

The University of Notre Dame’s Department of Film, Television, and Theatre (FTT) announces Oscar Wilde’s The Importance of Being Earnest, in the Patricia George Decio Theatre at the DeBartolo Performing Arts Center, November 8-12, 2017

In Wilde’s “trivial comedy for serious people,” first performed in London in 1895, both ladies and gentlemen concoct elaborate fictions in order to evade the burdensome conventions of polite society – and hilarity ensues.  

Guest director Mark Seamon, an FTT alumnus (‘98), describes the overall approach to the production as “period beautiful.” Part of the fun, he says, is “seeing how ridiculously these people behave within this beautiful and opulent environment.”

In 1997, Seamon became the first theatre student in decades to direct a department production  on the Washington Hall mainstage. Currently serving as Director of Merit Scholarship Enrollment for the university, Seamon returns to direct Earnest on the 20th anniversary of his student directorial debut.

The production features an all-student cast, as well as costumes by Richard E. Donnelly, lighting design by Kevin Dreyer, and scenic design by Marcus Stephens.

There you go. Have a great week!
