Auditions for Noises Off

Iberia Performing Arts League will hold open auditions for Michael Frayn's, "Noises Off", on Monday, July 22 and Tuesday, July 23 at 6:00 P.M. Auditions will be held at the Essanee Theatre, 126 Iberia Street, in New Iberia, La. Productions will run Thursday-Sunday, October 24 through November 3, 2013.
The cast consists of 5 males and 4 females, ranging in ages from 20's - 60's. The auditions will consist of cold readings from the script, so some familiarity with the characters and an English accent will be an advantage.  Noises Off is a fast paced, physical farce providing non-stop hilarity as a cast of fifth rate itinerant actors rehearse and prepare for touring in a "head on collision" with opening night. Frayns' classic three-act farce introduces slamming doors, flying props, prat falls, humorous misunderstandings, and plenty of sardines. The under-rehearsed actors and technicians desperately try to perform even as their rapidly deteriorating relationships cause mass hysteria and make for hysterical comedy both off-stage and on. Theyl quickly find that as they muddle through, the more they work to take control, the funnier and more chaotic it gets! Noises Off is written with a wit and heart that allows it to be more than mere farce or parody of farce; it speaks to what all love about theatre and what makes us laugh at our dramas, both onstage and off. It has been reviewed and boasted by many as one of the most brilliantly crafted lunatic comedy in years.
