Noises Off, South Coast Repertory, Costa Mesa CACenter Stage Players
will be producing one of the most critically acclaimed farces ever written: Michael Frayn’s Noises Off. High school and college students ages 17 to 23 are invited to audition for this hilarious three act comedy about a theatre company’s fraught-riddled attempt to produce a hilarious three act comedy.

The Center Stage Players
are a student-run group founded in 2009, producing full scale productions at Center Stage Texas Theatre. We believe that young theatre professionals should be given the chance to grow and explore their talents with support from seasoned professionals in the field. The two productions that have been produced thus far (Agatha Christie's And Then There Were None and the dark comedy Arsenic and Old Lace) were smash successes.

The student director and currently UT undergraduate student Dylan Kittleman works with a professional director and production manager to develop a full production plan, budget and schedule to be submitted to the CST board for review. Once the show is approved, auditions and interviews begin to select the students who will be participating in the show both as actors and as technical staff. The rehearsals span over several months in which students will learn staging, memorize lines, and study character motivation. Theatre professionals support and mentor students through the process, but ultimately the students make all of the final decisions. It all comes together at Center Stage Texas with six final performances September 7 - 9 and 14 - 16 showcasing the talent of the cast and crew to the public.
