“The Importance of Being Earnest” by Oscar Wilde (Sunday, January 24): Adapted by Albert and Bertha Johnson. Considered by some to be the funniest play ever written. Enjoy the hilarious repartee of Jack, Algie, Cecily and Gwendolyn as they ride the roller coaster of courtship. With Michael Brown, Cassandra Caballero, Dylan Caruso and Janet Davies.
“Kalamazoo” by Michele Kholos Brooks and Kelly Younger (Sunday, February 14). A delightful comedy about two 70-somethings who meet online, fall in love and want to get married. Then they have to start dealing with their grown children, their pasts and their hopes for the future. With Charles Craig and Emilie Robinson.
“Hedda Gabler” by Henrik Ibsen (Sunday, April 3). Adapted by Albert and Bertha Johnson. Ibsen’s finest play is the tragedy of a beautiful, bitter woman and the men in her life: her staid, inattentive husband; her sultry, troubled lover; and a lecherous judge. With Eve Caballero.
About Art Center Sarasota
Art Center Sarasota was the first arts and cultural institution in Sarasota. It was founded in 1926 as the “Sarasota Art Association” by Marcia Rader, the art supervisor for the Sarasota County schools district. In the early years, the group met monthly and sponsored exhibits in rented facilities. The Association was incorporated as a not-for-profit organization in 1943 and has been in its current location in the Sarasota Bayfront Cultural District since 1949. Art Center Sarasota is now a membership-based organization that offers curated and juried exhibitions, adult and youth education programs, outreach initiatives for underserved youth, and culturally related public programming. Art Center Sarasota’s mission is to inspire individual creative expression, nurture artistic talent and provide the community with accessible and diverse visual art opportunities.
