The 2018-2019 theatre season at the Fox Valley campus of the University of Wisconsin Oshkosh continues with Noises Off by Michael Frayn.
The production has performances at 7 p.m. Thursday, April 18; Friday, April 19; Saturday, April 20; Thursday, April 25; Friday, April 26; and 2 p.m. Saturday, April 27, at Perry Hall.
“Noises Off has been our audiences’ number one request,” director Susan Rabideau said. “It is a hilarious comedy. In these polarizing and trying times, it is so nice to come together as a group in joy and laughter!”
In Noises Off, a theatre troupe stumbles through their final dress rehearsal of a show for which the opening performance is just hours away. Amidst forgotten lines, unraveling love triangles and sardines flying everywhere, it’s complete pandemonium … and they haven’t even reached intermission! Can the cast pull their act together on stage even if they can’t behind the scenes?
UW-Fox Valley students are involved with the production on various levels: in addition to acting, they are performing technical duties like set construction.
“The students are basically learning how to build a house,” Rabideau said.
Ticket prices are $15 for adults and $12 for students and seniors. Tickets can be purchased online at any time or at the box office beginning one hour before each performance.
