Three Brothers Theatre is holding open auditions for NOISES OFF by Michael Frayn.  NOISES OFF is the original “play that goes wrong” and is perhaps the funniest farce of the twentieth century.

Seeking one actress 50+ for the role of Dotty Otley.  She is a forgetful old-time theatre actress attempting to stage her comeback in a British farce, Nothing On.

Seeking one actor 50+ for the role of Selsdon, a somewhat deaf, alcoholic stage actor gone to seed playing the part of a burglar in a British farce, Nothing on.

Synopsis: The touring company of Nothing On, a British farce, is hurriedly running through it’s final dress rehearsal. During the first act you’ll be treated to this play within a play and a cast who can’t seem to remember their lines, entrances, or exits. The director feverishly shouts out directions only to be ignored until Act Two. When suddenly the set flips and you’re now watching the backstage of this play within the play. The play has plunged into hysterics! The chaos and disorder of performing a play is too much for all involved. Then we reach Act Three. A month later and you would think the play has gotten better…but it hasn’t. It has devolved into sheer, hilarious insanity.

Auditions will be held at 221 N Genesee Street, Waukegan, IL 60085 on Monday and Tuesday, March 25th and 26th from 7-9.
