President’s Message

T

hank you for joining us for the fourth show of our 2013-2014 season! The hilarious comedy, Noises Off, premiered at the Lyric Theatre of Hammersmith, London in 1982. Author Michael Frayn first came up with the idea for the script while watching the backstage action of a 1970 farce where he first noticed “the farce was funnier from behind.” Originally intended for two people, he re-wrote the play several times to expand the number of characters (and the number of acts.) The play-within-a-play as we know it today was finally presented in 1982. The non-stop pace, witty dialogue, and physical comedy charmed British audiences. When Noises Off transferred to Broadway in 1983, the production was nominated for several Tony Awards, including Best Play. The same production also won a Drama Desk Award for Outstanding Ensemble. The original Broadway cast ran 553 performances, and countless revivals have garnered even more Tony and Drama Desk Awards. Our cast is delighted to bring you this classic comedy, brought to life on the Grand Stage through our signature brand of talent and artistry. Salt Lake Community College and the Grand Theatre are proud to offer outstanding resources – like this wonderful theatre – for all in our community to enjoy. The changes here at South City Campus expanded our capability to bring arts to the community through our new, state of the art classrooms and facilities. SLCC is truly the community’s college and we invite you to explore all we offer by taking a tour of our new Center for Arts and Media. Please encourage your neighbors and colleagues to join us as we present quality community theatre here at the Grand Theatre. We are glad you are here; please enjoy the show!

From the Producers

N

oises Off is one of my very favorite shows! Ever since I saw it for the first time 15 years ago, I’ve wanted to do a production of it. It’s so brilliantly written and so much fun that no matter how many times I see it, I always find myself laughing out loud. We’re very fortunate to have Anne Stewart Mark (Director) returning to the Grand. She has put together a wonderful cast and an amazing show. Noises Off is a Two for the Price of One show, giving the audience a simultaneous viewing of a traditional sex farce, Nothing On and the backstage comedy that develops during Nothing On’s final rehearsal and tour. The Noises Off chaos really begins as the characters make their exits from Nothing On only to find themselves out of the frying pan and into the fire of what’s going on backstage. Tensions rise as the “showmances” start to take their toll on the company, leading towards a disastrous final performance. The Grand is so thrilled to bring you this hilarious show, and we hope you’ll enjoy it as much as we do! We’d like to offer our special thanks to Lynda Baumgart for her years of service at SLCC and her commitment to helping the Grand Theatre. Best Regards,

Richard Scott Executive & Artistic Director

From the Director

I

have a long history with Noises Off going back to 1982 when I saw the original London production at the Savoy Theatre starring Patricia Routledge, (better known to American audiences as Hyacinth Bucket in the British television series: Keeping Up Appearances.) I was delighted then with the brilliant construction of the play-within-the-play and the familiar actor-types and theatre in-jokes, and continue to be so to this day. But, an audience needs no prior knowledge to thoroughly enjoy themselves. Familiarity with typical human behavior gone amok will suffice. Jealousy, rage, addiction, stupidity, and many of the other deadly sins pushed to extremes are what inhabit any good farce. And this is not just a good farce; it’s the best! Noises Off has been described as: “A play in three acts that goes from amazing hullabaloo to something painfully funny.” The first act is the rehearsal of a sex farce haltingly performed and grandly directed by a man who regularly compares himself to God. The second is a choreographed backstage view of the play’s deterioration as the action borders on chaos. And the third is the show itself gone “sublimely, perfectly wrong.” When I first auditioned for a role in the play, I thought I was a natural for Brooke/Vickie, but my dear friend Charles Morey saw me as Belinda, and for that and many other things, I thank him heartily. I played her 5 times under his direction and I would be kidding myself - and everyone else - if I didn’t confess that those productions have influenced this one very directly. I must also say that I am very familiar with all the changes and re-writes Mr. Frayn has made to his hilarious opus and I have also borrowed from each of them. Belinda takes great satisfaction from being in charge of everything and everyone, and I am thrilled to have the opportunity to be directly in charge of this production. What we have composed here at the Grand is a damn good rendition of a hilarious farce, with a great cast of actors, a well built set, handsome costumes, and bright lighting. All we need now is your participation to complete the wonderful concoction that is farce. Anne Stewart Mark Director

Behind the Dressing Room Doors DOTTY OTLEY (Mrs. Clackett) makes a welcome return to the stage to create the role of Mrs. Clackett after playing Mrs. Hackett, Britain’s most famous lollipop lady (‘Ooh, I can’t ‘ardly ‘old me lolly up!’) in over 320 episodes of TV’s On the Zebras. Her many stage appearances include her critically acclaimed portrayal of Fru Såckett, the comic char in Strindberg’s Scenes from the Charnelhouse. Her first appearance ever? In a school production of Henry IV Part I – as the old bag-lady, Mrs. Duckett. BELINDA BLAIR (Flavia Brent) has been on the stage since the age of four, when she made her debut in Sinbad the Sailor at the old Croydon Hippodrome as one of Miss Toni Tanner’s Ten Tapping Tots. She subsequently danced her way round this country, Southern Africa, and the Far East in shows like Zippedy-Dooda! and Here Comes les Girls! More recently she has been seen in such comedy hits as Don’t Mr. Duddle!, Who’s Been Sleeping in my Bed?, and Twice Two Is Sex. She is married to scriptwriter Terry Wough, who has contributed lead-in material to most of TV’s chat shows. They have two sons and three retrievers. GARRY LEJEUNE (Roger Tramplemain) while still at drama school won the coveted Laetitia Daintyman Medal for Violence. His television work includes Police!, Crime Squad, Swat, Forensic, and The Nick, but he is probably best-known as ‘Cornetto’, the ice-cream salesman who stirs the hearts of all the lollipop ladies in On the Zebras. SELSDON MOWBRAY (Burglar) first ‘trod the boards’ at the age of 12 – playing Lucius in a touring production of Julius Caesar, with his father, the great Chelmsford Mowbray, in the lead. Since then he has served in various local reps, and claims to have appeared with every company to have toured Shakespeare in the past half-century, working his way up through the Mustardseeds and the various Boys and Sons of, to the Balthazars, Benvolios, and Le Beaus; then the Slenders, Lennoxes, Trinculos, Snouts, and Froths; and graduating to the Scroops, Poloniuses, and Aguecheeks. His most recent film appearance was as Outraged Pensioner in Green Willies. BROOKE ASHTON (Vicki) is probably best known as the girl wearing nothing but ‘good, honest, natural froth’ in the Hauptbahnhofbrau lager commercial. Her television appearances range from Girl at Infants’ School in On the Zebras to Girl in Massage Parlour in On Probation. Cinemagoers saw her in The Girl in Room 14, where she played the Girl in Room 312. “The most important technological advance in history, so far as the maintenance of moral standards is concerned, was the invention of the keyhole.” –George Santayana FREDERICK FELLOWES (Philip Brent) has appeared in many popular television series, including Calling Casualty, Cardiac Arrest!, Out-Patients, and In-Patients. On stage he was most recently seen in the controversial all-male version of The Trojan Women. He is happily married, and lives near Crawley, where his wife breeds pedigree dogs. ‘If she ever leaves me,’ he says, ‘it will probably be for an Irish wolfhound!’ ROBIN HOUSEMONGER (Author) was born in Worcester Park, Surrey, into a family ‘unremarkable in every way except for an aunt with red hair who used to sing all the high twiddly bits from The Merry Widow over the tea-table.’ He claims to have been the world’s most unsuccessful gents hosiery wholesaler, and began writing ‘to fill the long hours between one hosiery order and the next.’ He turned this experience into his very first play, Socks Before Marriage, which ran in the West End for nine years. Two of his subsequent plays, Briefs Encounter and Hanky Panky, broke box office records in Perth, Western Australia. Nothing On is his seventeenth play. LLOYD DALLAS (Director) ‘read English at Cambridge, and stagecraft at the local benefits office.’ He has directed plays in most parts of Britain, winning the South of Scotland Critics’ Circle Special Award, and going on to a highly successful season for the National Theatre of Sri Lanka. In recent years he has probably be-come best known for his brilliant series of ‘Shakespeare in Summer’ productions in the parks of the inner London boroughs. ‘Desperation tells a thousand tales – and each of those thousand begets a thousand more.’ – Moldovian proverb
