LCHS fall play brings British humor
to the stage    
Send a link to a friend

[OCT. 8, 2004]  The fall play this year at Lincoln Community High School is Michael Frayn's "Noises Off." It is a hilarious three-act farce about life in the theater. It features a two-story set that has to revolve at intermissions, giving the audience a true behind-the-scenes view at the life in theater.

Directed by Jennifer Keith, the play is about a group of traveling actors putting on a play called "Nothing On." The first act shows the final rehearsal of the play before opening night. During Act 2, the set will spin to show what goes on backstage during a performance in Cleveland. Act 3, seen from the front again, concludes the show with a performance where all things that can go wrong do go wrong.

Most of the cast members end up playing two different characters and have to perfect British accents as well. In the cast are seniors Patrick Perry as Frederick and Philip; Tom Swanson as Lloyd; Brady Gerdts as Garry and Roger; Brian Welter as Tim; Brandon Davis as Seldsdon; Kassandra Pepperell as Dotty and Mrs. Clackett; and Kathryn Muck as Belinda and Flavia. Rounding out the nine-person cast are juniors Lindsey Boerma as Brooke and Vicki and Rachel Kasa as Poppy.

Assisting in the directing are seniors Rachel Hahn and James Cosby and junior Amy Schumacher, among many others.

The three performances will be Thursday, Oct. 14, at 7:30 p.m.; Saturday, Oct. 16, at 7:30 p.m.; and Sunday, Oct. 17 at 2 p.m. There will be no show on the Friday night due to a football game.

Tickets for the show are available at the door at $4 for adults and $3 for students and senior citizens.

It is not a show to miss. If you need a laugh, honestly, here's the place to get at least a dozen full-belly laughs.
