“Noises Off” is presented by arrangement with Concord Theatricals on behalf of Samuel French, Inc. www.concordtheatricals.com
It’s the final dress rehearsal and our intrepid theater company is desperately trying to put the finishing touches on their production of the British romp, Nothing On. Will they remember their lines for the opening night that is just hours away? Will the showmances within the company derail them? Does anyone have a clue what’s going on? And for goodness sake, don’t anyone say “break-a-leg!” because it might just happen!
Theatrical shenanigans, comic chaos, and lots and lots of sardines.
All Cape Rep staff and cast members have been fully vaccinated. Patrons who have been fully vaccinated will not be required to wear a mask for this production. We request patrons who are not vaccinated to please wear a mask.
