Otterbein University Theatre Presents Noises Off

September 7, 2012

Westerville, OH—Otterbein University Theatre presents Noises Off at 7:30 p.m. on Thursday, Sept. 27; 2 p.m. on Sunday, Sept. 30; and 8 p.m. on Sept. 28-29 and Oct. 4-6 at the Fritsche Theatre at Cowan Hall, 30 S. Grove St. Tickets cost $25. Call 614-823-1109 or visit www.otterbein.edu/drama.

With breakneck pace and a rich gallery of characters, Michael Frayn’s brilliantly witty farce, Noises Off, follows the on- and off-stage antics of a mediocre English touring company as they stumble from dress rehearsal to disastrous closing night of their comedic play, Nothing On. Absolutely everything that can go wrong does. Missed cues, broken backstage romances and a very slippery plate of sardines all come together to create this riotous, madcap comedy that will get everyone caught in the act!

Otterbein’s production of Noises Off is guest directed by Dan Knechtges, a 1994 graduate of Otterbein University and a Tony Nominated choreographer and director working in theater, opera, concert dance, television, film and music videos. Knechtges has directed and choreographed for numerous theatres across the country and internationally on shows ranging from Gilbert and Sullivan to Rodgers and Hammerstein to Brecht. Knechtges’ Broadway credits include Lysistrata Jones, Xanadu, Sondheim on Sondheim, 110 in The Shade and The 25th Annual Putnum County Spelling Bee. He holds a bachelor of fine arts degree in musical theatre from Otterbein University and hails from Cleveland, OH. He is also a member of the Lincoln Center Director’s Lab.

Tickets for Noises Off are $25 each and can be reserved by calling the Otterbein University box office at (614) 823-1109. The box office is open 10 a.m.- 4 p.m. Monday through Friday and one hour prior to performances. Student Rush discounts are available one hour prior to curtain, pending ticket availability. The box office is located in Cowan Hall, 30 S. Grove St., Westerville.
