It’s opening night tonight at Theatre 29 for the first show of the Morongo Basin’s Premiere Theater venues’ 15th season. Reporter Taylor Thacker says the gala opening night is sponsored by a hard-working local service club…..
Soroptimist International of Twentynine Palms will host the opening night of the first show of Theatre 29’s 2014 season, “The Importance of Being Ernest”, by Oscar Wilde. Opening night has been set for Friday, January 10, at the Theatre 29 complex at 73637 Sullivan Road in Twentynine Palms. Doors will open at 6 p.m. The curtain goes up at 7 p.m. “The Importance of Being Ernest” is a tale of lost and found love and objects. The story centers on country gentleman Jack Worthing, who invents a younger brother, Ernest, whom he pretends to be when he visits the city. This, along with a city-based friend’s invention of a poor relative, leads to a multitude of confusion over identity. The scenes are ripe for much farce and hilarity. Tickets to the opening night gala only are $25 each and are available from any Soroptimist or at the Flower Garden in Twentynine Palms. Proceeds from the evening will benefit Soroptimist International projects. For more information call 760-361-4151.
