Today's featured event: 

See 3rd Act Theatre Company's production of "The Importance of Being Earnest" at 8 tonight in the Shoppes at Northpark, 12100 N May Ave.

The new nonprofit is putting an industrial twist on a Victorian classic with its steampunk treatment of Oscar Wilde’s "Trivial Comedy for Serious People," directed by Jamie Brewster.

The witty satire focuses on two men who adopt the same pseudonym - "Ernest" - to lead double lives. 

The production stars many local favorites, including David Mays, Justice Wickstrom, Don Taylor, David Fletcher-Hall, Chris Spencer Harris, Holly McNatt, Rosemary Orwig Rogers, James Tyra and Joe Burleigh.

3rd Act’s theater is located in the Shoppes at NorthPark, with the entrance near its bar partners, Hacienda Tacos. 

Shows times are 8 p.m. Fridays and Saturdays and 2:30 p.m. Sundays. Performances continue through Feb. 23. For tickets and information, go to 3rdacttheatreco.com.
