Arís postpones The Importance of Being Earnest

The Importance of Being Earnest

Like you, we are very eager to return to the theatre, and we are thrilled with our next offering, The Importance of Being Earnest directed by our own Kathleen McManus. The script is right, the cast is superb, and the artists and designers we have lined up for the show are working full steam ahead. We just can’t wait to share this fun and funky production with you.

But wait we must.

Safety First!

After careful consideration, we have determined that the timing and venue we originally selected for The Importance of Being Earnest are not optimal for the safety and health of our cast, company, and of course, you, our patrons and supporters. In these tricky times dominated by COVID, we have adopted a Safety First policy.

Therefore, we will be postponing the production until we secure a venue that will better allow us to entertain you in comfort and health. We expect to announce the new dates and venue soon, so please continue to follow Arís via email and social media.

Thank you for your patience and understanding.

We’ll have good news for you soon.
