Though they're all about dodging social obligations or commitment of any kind, two wily young bachelors attempt to come across as very earnest -- while masquerading as guys named Ernest -- as they set out to win their well-dowried ladies' hearts. Of course, their plan goes hilariously awry. Oscar Wilde's enduring 1895 satire is a wittily sly romp through Victorian society, filled with one-liners and double entendres that still pack a mighty comic punch today. Revived numerous times on Broadway -- most recently in 2011 -- Earnest was also adapted into a 2002 film starring Oscar winners Reese Witherspoon and Colin Firth. Bring a picnic dinner and enjoy the show from the pastoral Austin Gardens, beneath the summer evening sky. Learn More

A timeless tale of courage, honor and unrequited love. Featuring Artistic Director Jack Hickey as Cyrano, France’s greatest warrior and poet, who is in love with the beautiful Roxanne. Cyrano’s legendarily large nose, however, causes him to doubt that he could ever win her love, leading him to court her by proxy, through the handsome yet vapid Christian. Cyrano is a beautiful, funny and touching story filled with swordfights, romance, and laughter; and brimming with Rostand’s beautiful poetry.
