    NOISES OFF

    A Farcical Comedy by Michael Frayn

    Directed by Jeffrey Baumgartner

    June 22, 23, 24, 29, 30 and July 1, 6, 7, 8
    Performances on Friday/Saturdays at 7PM & Sundays 2 PM CST

    Noises Off provides a glimpse into the world of theatre. The audience will witness both the rehearsal process and what goes on behind the scenes once the curtain is raised. The play opens the night before the first performance and the cast are hopelessly unready. Baffled by entrances and exits, missed cues, missed lines, and bothersome props, including several plates of sardines, Lloyd, the director, is beyond frustrated. Seen from backstage, Act 2 provides a view of the dysfunctional relationships between the cast. Romantic rivalries, lovers’ tiffs and personal quarrels lead to offstage shenanigans, onstage bedlam and the occasional attack with a fire axe. Act 3 occurs during the play’s last run where relationships between the cast have frayed considerably, the set is breaking down and props are winding up in the wrong hands, on the floor, and in the way. While the actors remain determined to cover up the mounting chaos, it’s not long before the plot and script are seemingly abandoned entirely in this hilarious comedy.

    Weekend Performances: July 13 Through July 29, 2018

    A fabulously fun international award winning musical based on the adored movie Legally Blond, The Musical follows the transformation of Elle Woods as she tackles stereotypes, snobbery and scandal in pursuit of her dreams.  It stays true to form with a peppy score and playful book. This action packed musical explodes on the stage with memorable songs and dynamic dances.  Equal parts hilarious and heart warming, this musical is so much fun it should be illegal!  Legally Blond, The Musical will take you from the sorority house to the halls of justice with the Opera House’s brightest new heroine…and, of course, her chihuahua Bruiser.  This musical is ridiculously enjoyable from start to finish.
    Music and Lyrics by Laurence O’Keefe and Nell Benjamin

    Based on the Novel by Amanda Brown and the Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer motion picture.

    A fabulously fun international award winning musical based on the adored movie Legally Blond, The Musical follows the transformation of Elle Woods as she tackles stereotypes, snobbery and scandal in pursuit of her dreams.  It stays true to form with a peppy score and playful book. This action packed musical explodes on the stage with memorable songs and dynamic dances.  Equal parts hilarious and heart warming, this musical is so much fun it should be illegal!  Legally Blond, The Musical will take you from the sorority house to the halls of justice with the Opera House’s brightest new heroine…and, of course, her chihuahua Bruiser.  This musical is ridiculously enjoyable from start to finish.

    Have you ever wanted to improvise songs like they do on Whose Line is it Anyway? Then Laura & Rick Hall’s Music Improv workshop will be perfect for you!

    Rick Hall (The Second City, Curb Your Enthusiasm, The Factory) and Laura (Whose Line Is It Anyway, Drew Carey’s and The Improv All-Stars) create a supportive, fun workshop environment where you can grow, explore and move out of your comfort zone, starting with warmups and games to help ease into singing.

    If you’re new to improv in general or just want to see what song improv is about, this workshop is perfect for you. You’ll build vocal confidence and learn to listen to each other and the accompaniment. You’ll learn about creating characters and stories through song. Before you know it, you’ll be belting out your own great improvised songs! We’ll work on songprov as a natural extension of your existing improv skills. We’ll focus on creating a strong who and where for your songs, look at musical form and structure, advanced harmonies and more.

    Tickets are:
    $50 for students who want to fully participate and interact directly with Laura & Rick.
    $35 for people who want to audit the workshop and observe only (no stage time/direct time with Laura or Rick)

    Space is limited!
