Noises Off wraps up season at Meadow Brook Theatre
Backstage farce runs May 31 through June 25, 2023, on the campus of Oakland University.
In Noises Off, we join the cast of the fictional play “Nothing On” for a hysterical peek behind the curtain. In only hours they’ll be faced with opening night. Will they be able to pull things together? If they do, will they manage to keep them together for the run of their play, or will the flubbed lines, falling trousers and flying sardines keep the show from going on?
Noises Off, by Michael Frayn, runs from May 31 through June 25, 2023, at Meadow Brook Theatre on the campus of Oakland University in Rochester Hills.
“Noises Off is the perfect way to end our season,” says Travis W. Walter, MBT artistic director. “Everyone wants that glimpse backstage, to see how the show gets made. This takes that to an absurd level that will keep both seasoned theatregoers and first-time attendees in stitches.”
