Northern Stage Favorites Reunite In The Brilliant Comedy NOISES OFF

Northern Stage Favorites Reunite In The Brilliant Comedy NOISES OFFMichael Frayn's Noises Off runs live on stage at the Barrette Center for the Arts in White River Junction, VT, April 11 - May 13. For tickets and information, call (802) 296-7000 or visit Tickets start at $15 for students and $34 for adults.

In Noises Off, an ambitious director and his troupe of mediocre actors rehearse a silly sex comedy titled Nothing On, where everything that can go wrong does. Jealousies erupt and scenery crumbles in what is often called the "best comedy ever written."

A cast of Northern Stage favorites from Broadway and beyond brings this meticulously crafted comedy to life. Northern Stage is thrilled to welcome back Susan Haefner (Northern Stage: Mamma Mia!, A Christmas Carol, and Mary Poppins; Broadway: State Fair, Thoroughly Modern Millie, and 42nd Street), Jamie Horton (Northern Stage: Orwell in America, Our Town, and Twelve Angry Men; Off-Broadway: Orwell in America at 59E59 Theaters), and Bill Kux (Northern Stage: A Christmas Carol, The Hound of the Baskervilles, and Romeo and Juliet; Broadway: Gore Vidal's The Best Man, The Trip to Bountiful, and Ain't Broadway Grand). Audiences may also recognize Emily Kron, who played the title role in Mary Poppins. After two years in the Northern Stage box office, Michael Hornig (Bud Frump in How to Succeed... at the New London Barn Playhouse) makes his man stage debut. Jenni Putney, David Mason, and Mark Light-Orr reunite after starring in The Norman Conquests, a trilogy of plays including Living Together, Table Manners, and Round and Round the Garden, co-produced in an historic collaboration by Northern Stage, Dorset Theater Festival, and Weston Playhouse in the spring and summer of 2016. Putney and Mason also appeared together in last season's Last of the Red Hot Lovers and Trick or Treat (transferring Off-Broadway in January 2019). The cast is completed with Patti Perkins (Northern Stage: New Works Now 5.0's Jane Burgoyne; Broadway: Billy Elliot, The Full Monty, Shakespeare's Cabaret, and All Over Town). Producing Artistic Director Carol Dunne says, "I saw Noises Off on Broadway when I was an acting student in my first year of college. The play made me want to be a part of the theater always, and its incredible timing and physicality blew me away. To produce this play in the Barrette Center for the Arts, with actors of this caliber and with a connection to our community, is a dream come true."

Peter Hackett directs (Northern Stage: A Christmas Carol, The Hound of the Baskervilles, and Living Together), and the creative team includes Jordan Janota (Set Designer), Laurie Churba (Costume Designer), Cory Pattak (Lighting Designer), Ben Montmagny (Sound Designer), Kyle Brand (Assistant Director), Kelleen Moriarty (Second Assistant Director), Paul West (Fight Director), and Brian R. Sekinger (Production Stage Manager).

A complimentary post-show reception with the cast follows the opening night performance on Saturday, April 14. An optional post-show conversation with the company follows evening performances on April 20, 21, and 22. $15 Anytime Student Tickets and $5 Access for All tickets (for EBT card holders) are available for any performance.
