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

Julius Caesar, returning victorious to Rome from foreign wars, is escorted to the Capitol by enthusiastic citizens for a public celebration. On the way, he is warned by a soothsayer to “beware the Ides of March.” At the celebration, the citizens, through Mark Antony, offer Caesar the crown. Three times he refuses. However, a group of conspirators, headed by Cassius, is disturbed by the power Caesar has gained and the idea that he might seize total power. To help their cause, the attempt to persuade Brutus, a good friend of Caesar and a man well-known for his honesty, that the welfare of Rome demands Caesar’s death.
