Called “the funniest farce ever written,” Noises Off presents a manic menagerie of itinerant actors rehearsing a flop called Nothing’s On. Doors slamming, on and offstage intrigue, and an errant herring all figure in the plot of this hilarious and classically comic play.


Saturday, March 6th.

All shows are at 7 PM.

To reserve a seat via email, message:

Be sure to include the following information: Name, date of the show, and the number of seats needed. We are selling seats in 2, 3, and 4 person blocks for social distancing purposes and have a limited capacity, so get your tickets now!
