Theatre MSU’s performances of Michael Frayn’s “Noises Off” take place April 19-21 at 7:30 p.m. General admission tickets are $10 at the door or $13 online at

“Noises Off” contains adult language and situations and is recommended for mature audiences.

Cody Stockstill, assistant professor in the MSU College of Arts and Sciences’ Department of Communication, is directing the production, which he describes as “a rip-roaring play within a play.”

“Noises Off is a complete mess of a show, and that’s where the comedy comes from,” said Stockstill, who also serves as the department’s theatre concentration coordinator. “The story takes us onstage and backstage of a comic farce, as the set rotates 180 degrees to show audiences the pandemonium going on backstage during Act Two of the play.”
