 The Jonesborough Repertory Theatre is bringing you backstage with its hilarious performance of Noises Off. The Broadway classic, with a Jonesborough twist, is coming to the Jonesborough Repertory Theatre stage March 4 through March 20. 
Inspired by the play production process, Noises Off is a three act play by English playwright Michael Frayn that gives an inside look into the comedy that goes on behind the curtain. There are non-stop laughs, clever punch lines, and choreographed chaos as the set turns around and the audience watches a production from an insider’s perspective. Noises Off has a complex and ingenious plot that showcases the hilarious experiences of play actors on stage and gives a glimpse of what happens behind-the-scenes.
Directed by Heather Knudtsen, Noises Off is an all-acting play with a plot that is sure to capture the attention of everyone in the audience. Noises Off is comedy on top of comedy…and gives insight into the world of theatre. The show is an actor-favorite because it tells their story, and the many stories of that time something in a play went terribly wrong in the funniest way.
“Noises Off is highly choreographed despite the fact that it is not a musical. The actors are continually entering and exiting the play’s unique set, which is made up of about eight doors,” explains director Heather Knudtsen. “This show requires actors to have impeccable comedic timing. But the cast of Noises Off is a wonderful ensemble made up of some of the TriCities best community theatre actors, including a number of old JRT favorites, and they completely make this show.”
The cast includes Tim Reynolds, Larry Bunton, Lucas Schmidt, Matthew Elb, Austin Bird, Tuesday Reynolds, Karen Elb, Holly Marshall and Kate Anderson.
Noises Off runs March 4 through March 20. Show times are Friday and Saturday at 7:30 p.m. and Saturday and Sunday at 2 p.m.
Tickets are $16 general admission, $14 for students and seniors. To purchase tickets, please call the Historic Jonesborough Visitors Center at (423)753-1010 or go online at www.jonesboroughtheatre.com. Season passes are also available.
