The Importance of Fine Arts
Good morning everyone; happy National Cheeseball Day! Isn’t it a relief? I know I was always worried about all the cheeseballs in the world that would never be celebrated—and yet here we are! It’s that special time of year again!
These days, it seems there’s a holiday for everything…National Cow Day, International Be-A-Friend Day... Did you eat a deep fried Twinkie this time last year? Let’s celebrate! Do you have more than two retractable pencils in your pocket? Put it on the calendar!
A special day you may not have marked yet on your calendar, however, is Pensacola Christian College’s upcoming Fine Arts Series: The Importance of Being Earnest by Oscar Wilde.
Now for all of you unacquainted with PCC’s programs, the Fine Arts Series is a program, a play in this case, that will be put on, open to students and the public. Directed under the theatrical genius of Dr. Charlene Monk and Mr. Daniel Webb of the performing arts department, this play is slowly being crafted into a masterpiece even now.
In the “unbiased” words of some of its own players,
“This play has a music of its own!” –Hannah LaJoy
"Wilde's banter and quick wit are masterfully displayed in Monk and Webb's production. Its humor transcends generations and is a real treat for all to enjoy!” –Meredyth Greening
“Easily a masterpiece of the 21st century in my unadulterated opinion!” –Me
Yes, I have the privilege of being part of this performance myself. I get chills just walking backstage between the large pieces of scenery, through the costuming room and past the props table. Every detail has been carefully crafted by our fabulous directors, our costume designers, and our set crew to form a performance like nothing you’ve ever seen before—all to be put into play this Friday!
Come join us! The Importance of Being Earnest will be brought to stage in the Dale Horton Auditorium on May 3, 4, and 6 at 8pm. Tickets are $ 18 for adults and $16 for children! Call (850) 478-8496 ext. 2792 for more information. We’d love to see you out there!0
