Strawberry Hill Players Latest Production a Must-See


Ivy Zingone, Staff Writer

Physical comedy, accents, meticulous timing, countless love triangles: the Strawberry Hill Players tackle their most challenging production yet as they put Noises Off on the Stamford High School stage.

Noises Off is a side-splitting British farce that follows the chaos of an unprepared theatre company as they attempt to put on their show, “Nothing On.”

The three-act show leaves the audience on the edge of their seat for the entire time. The first act, which is pivotal in establishing the plot for the rest of the show, is followed by two intense acts of demanding physicality. Actors are falling down stairs, sprinting across the stage, dealing with messy sardines, and fighting over whiskey… but I won’t spoil it.

Along with a stellar performance by the cast, the crew shined bright during the show as well. An impressive set was made even more impressive when the crew turned it a complete 180 degrees during intermission.

The Strawberry Hill Players opened this hilarious production on Friday, November 2nd and had a performance the following night on November 3. The feedback was phenomenal! Junior Aron Ravin said, “This play was awesome. I was just laughing the entire time.”

If you missed Noises Off, do not worry! Join the cast and crew on Friday, November 9th and Saturday, November 10 for their final two performances. Tickets are $10 for students, $15 for adults and free for teachers! Shows are at 8 p.m. in the Stamford High School large auditorium. Deemed “the funniest farce ever written” by The New York Times, you don’t want to miss Noises Off!
