Hello Gwendolen Fairfax! Goodbye Ophelia!
We started rehearsals for The Importance of Being Earnest last Friday. Instead of the usual first day fare of coffee and doughnuts for the “meet and greet,” we had tea cups, Earl Grey tea, cucumber sandwiches, and short bread. We dressed up in Garden Party attire. Oscar Wilde would’ve approved.
Also, we closed Shakespeare on the Saskatchewan this past weekend, too. The closing crossed over the beginning of Earnest, so my weekend was a bit busy (three 13-hour days, with no lunch or dinner break, in a row! Gah.) My brain has been split between Wilde and Shakespeare. I’m sad to say goodbye to Shakespeare, but I’m glad to focus completely on Wilde now.
