UPCOMING AUDITIONS

  

Noises Off Logo

Noises Off

Adult Non-Musical
Directed by Debra Goldman

Big Deal Productions is incredibly excited to bring this wonderful piece to the Buffalo Grove community! Called the funniest farce ever written, Noises Off presents a manic menagerie as a cast of itinerant actors rehearsing a flop called Nothing's On. Doors slamming, on and offstage intrigue, and an errant herring all figure in the plot of this hilarious and classically comic play.

There are parts for a wide range of adult women and men. Auditions will be August 2 and 3, with callbacks on August 4. Rehearsals will take place on Sundays, Mondays and Wednesdays. The show will take place October 7, 8, 13 and 14 at 7:30 pm, and October 8, 9 and 15 at 2 pm.

For more please contact Jessi Hersman at 847.850.2152.
