This fall, the Nobles Theatre Collective (NTC) will present two student-directed plays on Oct. 25, from 6:30-8 p.m, and Oct. 26, from 5-7 p.m. Diana Smith, Class I, will direct Furry Tails with a Twist, a show in which chaos ensues as two actors try to put on a collection of fairy tales with varying degrees of success. Emily London, Class I, will direct No Problem, written by Catherine Butterfield. In this show two women will rekindle a past friendship over a semi-disastrous lunch date.
The NTC will also present The Importance of Being Earnest by Oscar Wilde. Performances are scheduled for Nov. 7, 8 and 9 at 6:30 p.m., and Nov. 10 at 2 p.m. only. This part-satire and part-comedy of manners, this “Trivial Play for Serious People” (as Wilde subtitled it) seems ostentatiously artificial. However, below the surface of the light and witty comedy lurks an attack on self-righteous moralism and hypocrisy.
Information on tickets and performance length will be available on www.nobles.edu by early November. We hope to see many of you at both performances.
