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 male-identifying actor 25-45 for the role of Frederick Fellowes: a neurotic, overly cerebral actor, filled with self-doubt, but a rather sweet man. He is not necessarily the brightest bulb in the box. Always has a thousand questions about his lines and blocking. Gets nosebleeds-often. In “Nothing On”, he plays the part of Phillip Brent, a playwright who is currently living in Spain with his wife Flavia. He also plays the part of a wealthy Sheikh who is interested in renting the home and is the spitting image of Phillip.

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.

Material to Prepare:

Prepare a one minute comic monologue.

Time Commitment:

Performances are May 17th - June 8th on Friday and Saturday evenings. All rehearsals and performances will take place at our venue in Waukegan. Rehearsals begin the week of April 1st.
