A Dublin bus conductor with a passion for the works of Oscar Wilde is at the center of the latest show from the ever-ambitious Coronado Playhouse. Manny Bejarano directs the 2002 musical — based on an Albert Finney film — about the uproar that’s sparked when central character Alfie resolves to stage a production of Wilde’s tragedy “Salome” at a local church. The show’s composer is Tony Award winner Stephen Flaherty, who wrote music for the Old Globe’s upcoming production of “Much Ado About Nothing.”

“A Man of No Importance”: 8 p.m. Thursdays-Saturdays; 2 p.m. Sundays. Through Aug. 26. Coronado Playhouse, 1835 Strand Way, Coronado. $20-$27 (discounts available). (619) 435-4856.
