Noises Off

By Michael Frayn

Presented by special arrangement with SAMUEL FRENCH, INC

.

.

.

COMPANY NAME / INFO:

Maurer Productions OnStage

Director John M. Maurer

Producer Diana Gilman Maurer and John M. Maurer

Stage Manager Melissa Gaynor

 

ABOUT THE SHOW:

Maurer Productions OnStage presents Michael Frayn's “Noises Off”. Called “the funniest farce ever written. Noises Off takes a fond look at the follies of theatre folk, whose susceptibility to out-of-control egos, memory loss, and passionate affairs turn every performance into a high-risk adventure. This play-within-a-play captures a touring theatre troupe’s production of “Nothing On” in three stages: dress rehearsal, an early performance, and a performance towards the end of a debilitating run. Frayne gives us a window into the inner workings of theatre behind the scenes, progressing from flubbed lines and missed cues in the dress rehearsal to mounting friction between cast members in the final performance. Brimming with slapstick comedy, Noises Off is a delightful backstage farce, complete with slamming doors, falling trousers, and -- of course -- flying sardines!

SEEKING:

Looking for 4 women and 5 men

 

CHARACTER INFORMATION:

FEMALE CHARACTERS

 

Dotty Otley / Mrs. Clackett:  (50 - 70) (Accent: Standard British and Cockney)
Dotty is a once “Much Loved” English actress who is now in her twilight years and is having trouble remembering lines and stage direction. She has used her life savings to help finance the play to help with her retirement.  She is Playing Mrs. Clackett a Cockney Housekeeper in the Brent’s home with a penchant for putting up her feet and have some sardines.

Brooke Ashton / Vicki:  (20 - late 30's) (Accent: Standard British)

Brooke is a young, popular but inexperienced, British actress known for playing the sexy Ingenue with very little costume. She learns her part by rote and will say the lines as written no matter what is going on around her. (NOTE:) Brooke IS NOT stupid, vain or a Diva, she spends a lot of time thinking her own thoughts and doesn’t always connect with the world or her costars around her. She plays Vicki, a young office worker for Inland Revenue (English IRS) who is Rogers - hopeful - nooner.
Director’s Note: Brooke spends the majority of the show in her undergarments.  You must be comfortable performing in little more than a bra and underwear.


Belinda Blair / Flavia Brent:  (30's - late 40's) (Accent: Standard British)

Belinda Is the self-assigned mother of the group. Cheerful and sensible, she dislikes conflict and likes to make things run smoothly.  She plays Philip Brent's wife.  She is dependable and forward thinking, though not one for household duties.

.

Poppy Norton-Taylor: (20 - 30) (Accent: Standard British)
Poppy
is the Assistant Stage Manager of Nothing On.  She is emotional and over-sensitive and doesn’t have a lot of experience as a stage manager.

.

MALE CHARACTERS

 
Lloyd Dallas:  (30 - 50) (Accent: Standard British)

Lloyd is the director of the play, Nothing On. He is self-absorbed, temperamental, and has an eye for the ladies.

.

Garry Lejeune / Roger Tramplemain:  (20 - 40) (Accent: Standard British)
Garry is an  actor who is easily fired up and always has a lot to say but never finishes a sentence.

"you know..." He plays Roger an English Real Estate Agent who is attempting to rent Flavia's and Philip's home, but uses it for his own personal benefit.

 

Frederick Fellowes /Philip Brent / Sheikh:  (20 - 40) (Accent: Standard British)
Frederick is a character actor with a serious fear of violence who gets nosebleeds at the sight of blood. He is self-deprecating when things go wrong and often questions the meaning of his lines and blocking. He plays Philip Brent, a successful playwright who lives outside of the country with his wife Flavia to avoid paying taxes. He is constantly worried about being caught by Inland Revenue and losing most of the year's income. He also plays the Sheikh, a Middle-Easterner, interested in renting Flavia's and Philip's home and is the spitting image of Philip.

Selsdon Mowbray / Burglar:  (60 +) (Accent: Standard British and Cockney)
Selsdon is a long time stage actor who is best known for his short lived but popular TV series on the BBC.  He is an actor of the old school with greasepaint in his veins and a bottle of scotch always at the ready. Slightly befuddled, never really sober and very hard of hearing, Selsdon is an old friend of Dotty who is giving him another shot with this show. He plays the Burglar, an old Cockney roustabout who longs for the good old says when stealing stuff meant something.

 

Timothy Allgood:  (20 - 30) (Accent: Standard British)
Tim is the Company and Stage Manager and a jack of all trades. He has a fatal flaw - he can’t say no. If you want the set rebuilt overnight, need him to go without sleep, do your taxes or to understudy all your male actors at a moment’s notice, he is there.  Passed out on the floor, but there.

 

REHEARSALS:

You should expect two rehearsals in the evening during the week and one weekend day rehearsal per week. Later in rehearsal process, more days may be added. These rehearsals will be broken up by scenes. Call sheets will be made available to the cast on a weekly basis to tell you which rehearsals you will need to attend.

About the Show

The Pennington Players present the tony-winning Peter and the Starcatcher – a show which upends the century-old story of how a miserable orphan comes to be The Boy Who Would Not Grow Up (a.k.a. Peter Pan). A wildly theatrical adaptation of Dave Barry and Ridley Pearson’s best-selling novels, the play was conceived for the stage by directors, Roger Rees and Alex Timbers, and written by Rick Elice, with music by Wayne Barker. From marauding pirates and jungle tyrants to unwilling comrades and unlikely heroes, Peter and the Starcatcher playfully explores the depths of greed and despair... and the bonds of friendship, duty and love.

Character Information

Molly Aster (Female, Age 13-25) - A young girl and Starcatcher apprentice who is taken aboard the Neverland ship as precious cargo. Curious and intelligent, she is only beginning to understand the confusing romantic longings that come with her age. She will risk anything for the sake of what is right. A true hero in every sense of the word.

Boy/Peter (Male, Age 13-25) - A lonely and hardened orphan who doesn't miss much. Nameless, homeless, and friendless at the beginning of the play and a hero by the end. He wants a home and a family more than anything, and dreams of a life of being free.

Prentiss (Male, Age 13-25) - An orphan, ambitious, hyper articulate, and logical. He yearns to be leader, even when he knows in his heart that he'll never be one. A bit of a blowhard with a touch of cowardice.

 

The rest of the roles in this production are open to actors of any gender. Ages are flexible except where specifically noted.

Several roles listed below will be doubled with other roles in the show.

 

Black Stache (Age 30-50) - A notorious pirate, terrorizing the seven seas in search of a worthy adversary. Heartless, hirsute, and suspiciously well read. Partial to the poetical and theatrical, which causes him to behave quite flamboyantly.

Grempkin - The schoolmaster of St. Norbert's Orphanage for Lost Boys. Mean and malodorous, revels in keeping his boys in the dark and malnourished. 

Mrs. Bumbrake (Age 40-60) - Molly's nanny, a stereotypical British cad and outfitted with the duty of teaching Molly about womanhood. Still has enough charm in her age to attract a sailor or two.

Bill Slank - The vicious orphaned captain of the Neverland. Does not possess the capacity to lead anyone but himself, which puts himself constantly in disaster. Greedy enough to send boys to their doom for the chance of gaining starstuff.

Smee - Black Stache's first mate. Single-mindedly dedicated to his captain's every whim.

Alf (Age 50-65) - A seafarer, an old sea dog proud of his tenure. His kind heart gives him an appeal to the feminine sensibility.

Lord Leonard Aster - Molly's father, a loyal subject to the Queen. The very model of a Victorian English gentleman, he is a faithful friend and a secret Starcatcher.

Captain Robert Falcon Scott - Lord Aster's old school friend, the captain of the Wasp, Britain's fastest frigate. Lives with nautical bravura and heroic patriotism.

Ted - An orphan obsessed with food. A natural performer with easy wit and quite poetic language. Referred to as “Tubby,” due to food obsession rather than physical size

.

Rehearsal Information: 

You should expect two rehearsals in the evening during the week and one weekend day rehearsal per week. Later in rehearsal process, more days may be added. These rehearsals will be broken up by scenes. Call sheets will be made available to the cast on a weekly basis to tell you which rehearsals you will need to attend.
