"The Importance Of Being Earnest" Cast List

We want to thank everyone who came out to audition for The Importance of Being Earnest! The talent that you all brought to us was far beyond what we could have hoped for, which made our job of casting this show very difficult. After hours of consideration, we have reached a decision. The cast of The Importance of Earnest will be as follows:

Algernon Moncrieff- Jared Rounds
Jack Worthing- Joshua Winkler
Gwendolen Fairfax- Kassie Winkler
Cecily Cardew- Tasha Bush
Lady Augusta Bracknell- Charity Lund
Dr. Frederick Chasuble- TBD
Miss Laetitia Prism- Teresa Jones
Lane- Darren McKinnon
Merriman- Garrett Jones
Moulton the Gardener- Christopher Kidd
Sharron the Maid- Gina Adamson
Mette the Housekeeper- Rachel Holdaway

We would like to thank everyone that participated on Tuesday. Every single person that came had something incredible to offer, and something that we could have used in the show… but this play has a limited cast, even with the roles that we added.

Please confirm your acceptance of this role by emailing me at After I receive a confirmation, I will email you back with the information about the first rehearsal. For those who are not part of our principle cast, and are interested in assisting in other ways (costume, set, advertising, etc.), contact me at the email above. We would love to have you!

Young Female:

Politics are my only pleasure. You see nowadays it is not fashionable to flirt till one is forty, or to be romantic till one is forty-five, so we poor women who are under thirty, or say we are, have nothing open to us but politics or philanthropy. And philanthropy seems to me to have become simply the refuge of people who wish to annoy their fellow-creatures. I prefer politics. I think they are more... becoming!


When I am in trouble, eating is the only thing that consoles me. Indeed, when I am in really great trouble, as anyone who knows me intimately will tell you, I refuse everything except food and drink. At the present moment I am eating muffins because I am unhappy. Besides, I am particularly fond of muffins.

Gwendolyn or Cecily:

it is very painful for me to be forced to speak the truth. It is the first time in my life that I have ever been reduced to such a painful position, and I am really quite inexperienced in doing anything of the kind. However, I will tell you quite frankly that I have no brother Ernest. I have no brother at all. I never had a brother in my life, and I certainly have not the smallest intention of ever having one in the future.

Older Female:

I do not know whether there is anything peculiarly exciting in the air of this particular part of Hertfordshire, but the number of engagements that go on seem to me considerably above the proper average that statistics have laid down for our guidance. I think some preliminary inquiry on my part would not be out of place. Mr. Worthing, is Miss Cardew at all connected with any of the larger railway stations in London? I merely desire information. Until yesterday I had no idea that there were any families or persons whose origin was a terminus.
