The Importance of Being Earnest

by Oscar Wilde

When Jack and Algernon invent alter egos named “Ernest” hijinks ensue. This classic comedy of manners satirizes the Victorian era especially through one of the most famous characters in the theatrical lexicon– Lady Bracknell.

Appropriate for all ages.

Written by Rob Roznowski
Directed by Kevin Craig
Hardy likes to make jokes. All of the time. When his friends and family ask him to go a week without making any wisecracks, Hardy learns how much he has been hiding behind his humor.
Appropriate for all ages.

10:00PM How to Make Friends and Then Kill Them
by Halley Feiffer

Sisters Ada and Sam decide they need a friend and recruit wallflower Dorrie to join them in a dysfunctional triangle. This pitch-black comedy is about co-dependence and the definition of family.
Appropriate for Adults Only. This show has content that may be triggering including murder, profanity and sexual situations.

The Summer Circle stage is an outdoor performance venue located between the Kresge Art Building and the Auditorium on the MSU Campus. Free parking is available across the street. In the event of rain, the performances will be moved into the Fairchild Theatre.

All performances are free and open to the public. Theatregoers can arrive early to grab a Summer Circle seat next to the stage or bring their own chairs for casual lawn seating. Attendees are encouraged to bring a picnic to enjoy during the show or buy a Food Truck treat! See you at the circle!
