On Tuesday, May 12, The Baptist College of Florida (BCF) English program presented their second annual spring play, a staging of Oscar Wilde’s satirical comedy The Importance of Being Earnest. Over 150 people gathered in the BCF Wellness Center to enjoy an evening of laughs and good humor, a much needed release as finals week winds down.

The play was directed by English Secondary Education Major Sydney Bodden, star of last year’s performance of Shakespeare’s As You Like It.  The cast included Calvin Booth, Corban Stone, Charity Hayes, Hannah Shaffett, Curtis Lucas, Melody Barney, Allison Jerrell, Jessica Wiggins, and Aubryanna Williams, with tech support and stage assistance from Jamie Settle, Kevin Green, Ryan Gant, and Casey Ranalli.

BCF English Professor Geoffrey Reiter, Program Coordinator for the English Program and sponsor of the play, wished to convey his appreciation to all who participated in it directly, as well as to the members of BCF’s administration, Student Services, Maintenance, and Marketing who helped support and publicize the event. “I am pleased with the effort and the results, and grateful that God has given us the opportunity to express creativity in this way at the college,” stated Reiter. According to Reiter, students in the English program are already making plans to continue this new tradition by performing another play in spring 2016.
