Noises Off takes a fond look at the follies of theatre folk, whose susceptibility to out-of-control egos, memory loss, and passionate affairs turn every performance into a high-risk adventure. This play-within-a-play captures a touring theatre troupe's production of Nothing On in three stages: dress rehearsal, the opening performance, and a performance towards the end of a debilitating run. Watch the inner workings of theatre behind the scenes, progressing from flubbed lines and missed cues in the dress rehearsal to mounting friction between cast members in the final performance. Brimming with slapstick comedy, Noises Off is a delightful backstage farce, complete with slamming doors, falling trousers, and -- of course -- flying sardines!

- Please bring your calendar to list all rehearsal and performance conflicts.
- Please bring a pencil, your acting resume (if available), and a headshot (if available). Your acting experience can also be listed on the Audition Sheet if you do not have a resume.
- The auditions will consist of cold reads from selected sides in the script.
