DOWNEY - "Noises Off," a comedic farce that explores the chaos of live theater, is currently being presented by Warren High School's Drama Department.Performances are presented in the school's Emerson Theatre, Thursday through Sunday, at 7:30 p.m. until Jan. 21. Tickets are $8 and can be purchased from cast members, at the box office in room E-2, online at emersontheatre.net or by calling (562) 869-7306, ext. 87910. Starting off on stage during a technical rehearsal, things aren't going so great as actors are missing cues, the set is falling apart and tempers fly. Things spiral out of control in the second act as the production sinks faster than the Titanic, but this time the audience is treated to the chaos as it unfolds from the backstage point of view. Due to subject matter, the play may not be suitable for younger audiences. Children under 5 are not permitted. Proceeds from the play go to drama department and their continued quest for young adult theater.
