‘Noises Off’

“Noises Off,” described as “the funniest farce ever written,” closes the Central Lakes College summer theatre season July 6-10 and 13-17 in Chalberg Theatre on the Brainerd campus. Performances are at 7:30 p.m. “Noises Off” plays on the concept of a play-within-a-play, in this case a dreadful sex comedy titled “Nothing On.” The cast: Rebecca Souhrada, Brainerd, as Dotty Otley, the grande dame of the fictitious acting troupe performing “Nothing On.” Craig Hostetler, Brainerd, as Garry Lejeune, the tongue-tied leading man. Abbey Olmsted, Brainerd, as Belinda, the cast gossip and mother hen. Patrick Stenglein, Brainerd, as Frederick, an actor prone to panic attacks and nosebleeds. Marc Oliphant, Baxter, as Lloyd, the beleaguered director of the play. Emily Jensen Brainerd, as Brooke, a myopic act-by-the-numbers type. Katie Maine, Brainerd, as the harried company stage manager Poppy. Kenny Simon, Royalton, as Selsdon, the elder statesman of the troupe with an unquenchable thirst for booze. Dustin Beehler, Brainerd, as Tim, the company’s backstage technician and general gopher. Patrick Spradlin directs. Stephanie Johnson is the stage manager, assisted by Josh Mattson.
