- October 15, 2014 The Importance of Being Earnest William Peace Theatre presents Oscar Wilde's The Importance of Being Earnest, directed by Amy White. Working within the social conventions of late Victorian London, The Importance of Being Earnest is a farcical comedy in which the protagonists maintain fictitious personae to escape burdensome social obligations. The play's major themes are the triviality with which it treats institutions as serious as marriage, and the resulting satire of Victorian ways. Its high farce, humor and witty dialog have helped make The Importance of Being Earnest Wilde's most enduringly popular play. TICKETS: $5 students / $10 Alumni, Senior Citizens, Faculty & Staff / $15 Adults SEATING: General Admission Purchase individual tickets online here. Purchase season tickets online here. view Event

Omicron Delta Kappa, the National Leadership Honor Society, was founded in 1914 and was the first national college honor society to recognize and honor meritorious leadership and service in extracurricular activities and encourage campus citizenship. Its national membership consists of more than 300,000 people. The WPU chapter was formed in April 2009 and includes nearly 150 students, alumni, faculty and staff.
The event will be held from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. in Kenan Hall and will feature a keynote address by Korrel Kanoy, Ph.D., William Peace University’s Professor Emerita of Psychology. A networking reception will immediately follow.
“We are excited to have Dr. Kanoy join us once again to discuss emotional intelligence and leadership during this important occasion,” said Debra M. Townsley, Ph.D., president of William Peace University. “With her vast knowledge of psychology, emotional intelligence and leadership, and her strong ties to William Peace University, she is sure to be a dynamic keynote speaker for Omicron Delta Kappa members.”
“I am delighted to be asked to present the keynote address on leadership and emotional intelligence,” said Kanoy. “I look forward to celebrating Triangle-area Omicron Delta Kappa members and their leadership as they mark this important occasion in the society’s history.”
