John Worthing, as played by Scott Woods, holds hands with Gwendolen Fairfax, as played by Makalya Lindbloom, after proposing to her Tuesday during the dress rehearsal for Havre High School's production of "The Importance of Being Earnest" in their theater.

The Havre High School drama department is reaching back in time to bring a classic to the stage in Havre.

Its production of "The Importance of Being Earnest" by Oscar Wilde premieres Thursday at 7 p.m. in the high school auditorium.

Director Angela Pratt said the story is a classic comedy that has stood the test of time.

"It's the story of two bachelors, John 'Jack' Worthing and Algernon 'Algy' Moncrieff, who create alter egos named Ernest to escape their tiresome lives. They attempt to win the hearts of two women who, conveniently, claim to only love men called Ernest," she said.
