Staff report

The Truckee High School Drama Club will present its fall play, Oscar Wilde’s “The Importance of Being Earnest, A Trivial Comedy for Serious People,” this weekend and next.

Carrie Haines, who earned her BFA in Theatre Arts at USC, is directing. She has directed dozens of plays for renowned theater companies in the Bay Area; has been nominated for a Circle Critics Award for Best Director; and teaches acting at InnerRhythms Dance Center.

Show times are at 7 p.m. Friday and Saturday, Dec. 2-3 and 9-10; and at 2 p.m. Sunday, Dec. 4 Doors open one hour before show times.
