Evanston Township High School presents “Noises Off”, a British comedy by Tony Award winner, Michael Frayn, on December 14, 15, and 16 at 7:30 pm in the Upstairs Theatre.
“Noises Off” is a play within a play, and showcases a group of actors in the various stages of performing the traditional farce, “Nothing On,” as well as the backstage antics of a cast mired by exhaustion, confusion, and damaged relationships. The show features one of the most challenging set designs undertaken by the school to date, as it transitions from the onstage performance, the entire set rotates to reveal the collective nervous breakdown occurring backstage. Directed by Tom Sollers and designed by Aaron Carney.
General admission tickets are $8 for adults, $6 for students and senior citizens. Tickets are available online at www.ethstheatre.com, where you can print your own ticket, and at the ETHS box office before each performance.
