ISU Theatre play features life off stage

ISU Theatre's first production of spring semester opens next week in Fisher Theater. There will be six performances of Noises Off,a play about actors, actresses and what's going on among them off stage. Evening performances will begin at 7:30 p.m. on Thursday, Feb. 22; Friday, Feb. 16 and 23; and Saturday, Feb. 17 and 24. A single matinee performance will begin at 2 p.m. Sunday, Feb. 18. Tickets are $10 ($9 for seniors and $4.50 for students), and available at all TicketMaster locations, including the C.Y. Stephens box office.

The plot in Noises Off follows a "B" touring group from the end of rehearsals through opening night and the tour itself. Romance and arguments seem inevitable in a group spending this much time together, and their rehearsed performance pales in comparison to what's going on backstage.
