From the start of the new school year, The Theatre class has started to prepare for their upcoming fall play called “Noises Off.” The Cast, Crew and the Teacher practiced multiple times to ensure the audience would be happy with the play’s chaotic, funny, and wittiness. 

The Theater director, Brad Brady states that, “We have practiced for 2 to 3 months, multiple times a week, varying from Mondays to Thursdays […] sometimes Saturday.” 

The play was set in the Steinbrenner Auditorium where many Steinbrenner Students and Adults watched the play. The ticket prices for the Steinbrenner Students were $10, and the prices for the Adults were $15. 

During November 16 to 18, 2023, the audience were treated to a laughter-filled spectacle with the staging of “Noises Off.” This comedic theater play, divided into three acts, delivered hilarious moments and uproarious humor that had the audience in stitches. Just as hoped by the theatre class.

Backstage chaos ensued, creating a humorous spectacle of the hurdles involved in putting on a production.

The simple yet clever three-act structure allowed the audience to enjoy the comical evolution from chaotic rehearsals to the uproarious final performance.
