Drama club 'Noises Off'

September 20, 2012

The on and backstage intrigue surrounding an ambitious director and his troupe of itinerant actors sets the stage for the Grosse Pointe North High School drama club’s fall presentation, “Noises Off.”

The Michael Frayn-penned play within a play is considered the funniest farce ever written. Broken into three acts, the play follows director Lloyd Dallas and company’s attempts to perform “Nothing On.”

Peter Gristsas assumes the role of Dallas and the remaining cast includes: Jamie Lackner as Dotty Otley; Jacob VandenBoom as Garry Lejeune; Stephanie Saravolatz as Brooke Ashton; Katelyn Carroll as Poppy Norton-Taylor; Kyle Stefak as Frederick Fellowes; Analisa Guido as Belinda Glair; Jeffery Redd as Tim AllGood and Logan Hart as Selsdon Mowbray.

Marty Bufalini directs the production, with performances scheduled for 7:30 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 4, and Saturday, Oct. 6, and 3 p.m. Sunday, Oct. 7, all at North’s Performing Arts Center.

Tickets are general admission, $10 for adults and $8 for students and seniors, and are available at Wild Birds Unlimited or at the door. All proceeds benefit North’s performing arts department.

Gold cards are welcome.
