AUDITION NOTICE: 'Noises Off' - June 13, 2021
–In the fall of 2021, ACT (a community theatre) hopes to remount Noises Off, a comedy first presented by ACT in 1996, and again ‘almost’ in 2020.
Noises Off (written by Michael Frayn) presents the madcap misadventures of a touring troupe of actors, their bitingly sarcastic director, and their overworked crew as they attempt to rehearse and perform a flop of a play entitled ‘Nothing On’. ACT’s production of this ‘farce to end all farces’ will appear (fingers crossed) on stage in November, 2021. Auditions will be held on June 13. We are seeking 4 adult actors, presenting as 18-45. For further information or to make a booking, contact Sharon at email@example.com
Also - if you think you'd like to help with the production in other ways (publicity, backstage, etc) let us know at firstname.lastname@example.org
