“Noises Off,” a door-slamming farce about real actors playing fake actors playing characters in a play, will be presented by Elk River Community Theatre beginning next Friday at Zabee Theater.
The story starts with rehearsals for a play called “Nothing On,” a comedy with girls running around in their lingerie and men whose pants fall down. With only two weeks to prepare for their road run, the troupe unravels amongst their own inter-relationships along with the play’s flaws.
Michael Conrad plays Lloyd Dallas, the belabored, beleaguered director trying to bring everyone together just to have a normal, if not spectacular, show. More details in next week’s Star News.
The play date are July 27, 28 and 29, and Aug. 2, 3, 4 and 5. Regarding tickets, the group’s website address is erct.org and phone number is 763-441-1251.
