The Cumberland Valley Barefoot Club's will lead off fall arts season the annual fall play. This year they will perform The Importance of Being Earnest.

The play is completely student produced and directed. The faculty advisors are Ms. Maggie Futato and Ms. Angie Doody.

“Auditions to be a part of the cast work like trying out for the musical,” Futato said. "Ms. Doody and I hold interviews after school for directors and stage managers who are willing to work on the play and people who want to audition for the cast.”

The Importance of Being Earnest is a skillfully constructed, Victorian Era comedy about traditional gender roles. Junior student director Sofia Mains selected the play.

“I decided to choose this play because I wanted to bring light into these dark times,” she said.

COVID protocol demands the cast and crew take important safety precautions. “Our cast is made up of eight people and we are sure to always stay at least three feet apart. When our actual play takes place we will be sure to keep the audience socially distanced; we will also be wearing our clear masks when performing,” Ms. Futato said.

The cast plans to market the play with flyers around the school and weekly announcements on CVTV. The Fall play cast and crew want to bring a lighthearted comedy to these tough times, and the fall play will do just that. Tickets will be sold toward the end of October and the performance will take place in November.
