Galesburg, IL

Carl Sandburg College brings classical farce to the stage with its production of “Noises Off” from Nov. 8-10 in the Fine Arts Theater, Room F118, on the Main Campus in Galesburg, 2400 Tom L. Wilson Blvd.

This funny and fast-moving British play by Michael Frayn is the first to be directed at Sandburg by theater instructor Robert Thompson. “Noises Off” is a play within a play, as each of its three acts portrays the first act of a play called “Nothing On.” The production captures the behind-the-scenes hilarity of the touring theater troupe’s run, from dress rehearsal to one of its final performances.

Show times are 7:30 p.m. Nov. 8-9 and 2 p.m. Nov. 9-10. Tickets are $5 each and can be purchased at the box office, which opens 30 minutes before each show. Those presenting a current Sandburg ID can get in free to the Nov. 10 matinee.

For more information, contact Thompson at rthompson@sandburg.edu or 309.341.5317.

Noises Off dress rehearsal

Dotty Otley/Mrs. Clacket, played by Erin Glasnovich, looks to have ill intentions while yielding an ax, something that gives pause to Garry Lejeune/Roger, played by Greg Herrington, during Carl Sandburg College Theater’s dress rehearsal for “Noises Off” in the Fine Arts Theater on the Main Campus in Galesburg.
