Arizona Theatre Company — the state’s premier professional theatre troupe — kicks off its 47th season with the romantic satire “The Importance of Being Earnest.” Oscar Wilde’s hilarious masterpiece takes audiences on a roller coaster ride of verbal banter, mistaken identities, and confused loved interests.

The play stars Anneliese van der Pol, Heather Marie Cox, Loren Dunn and Mike Lawler. Stephen Wrentmore directs.

Performances run through Oct. 27 at the Herberger Theater Center, 222 E. Monroe Street, Phoenix. General admission starts at $36. Find out more at or (602) 256-6995.
