LSC-Tomball Theatre offers ‘Noises Off’
The Lone Star College- Tomball Theatre Department will present the comedy production “Noises Off” at 7:30 p.m. Thursday through Saturday, Oct. 25-27, in the Performing Arts Center on campus.
The farcical play tells the story of a manic cast of itinerant actors rehearsing a flop called “Nothing’s On.” The play presents doors slamming, intrigue and an errant herring all figuring in the plot.
“This play will have the audience rolling with laughter the entire time,” said drama professor Sherri White in a press release. “The cast we have is excellent. It will be a great time for everyone.”
Tickets are $15 for the general public, $12 for seniors and Lone Star
College employees, and $5 for students with an ID. The LSC-Tomball Performing Arts Center is located at 30555 Tomball Parkway. For ticket information, call 281-357-3654 or visit www.lonestar.edu/tomball-dramaor
