by Michael Frayn.
This play-within-a-play captures a touring theatre troupe’s production of Nothing On in three stages: dress rehearsal, the opening night and a performance towards the end of a run. Frayne gives us a window into the inner workings of theatre, progressing from flubbed lines and missed cues in the rehearsal to mounting friction between cast members in the final performance. Noises Off is a backstage farce, complete with slamming doors, falling trousers and flying sardines! Directed by Steve Gonyaw

Music and Lyrics by Stephen Sondheim
Book by James Lapine
The story follows The Baker and his wife who wish to have a child, Cinderella who wishes to go the King’s Festival, and Jack who wishes his cow would give some milk. When the Baker and his wife are visited by the neighborhood witch, who reveals to them that she placed a curse on their family, the two set off on a journey into the woods to reverse the curse. Once everyone has gotten their wish and will seemingly live happily ever after, we see how the consequences of their actions haunt them in disastrous ways. The community must come together to save each other and their kingdom, but sacrifices must be made.
Look for auditions and opportunities in March 2023.
