For three nights, Sep. 21-23, Lansing High School performed the British comedy “Noises Off”.

The main cast of “Noises Off” performs. Pictured (From L to R) are senior Brynna Darley, senior Preston Thomas, sophomore Megan Darley, senior Jake Merino, senior Katie Burgess, and sophomore Will Snodgrass. Photo by Lena Ferguson.

Throughout the course of the two hour show, doors, bags, and boxes all provided an extensive set that the cast professionally maneuvered through.

While there were a few hiccups along the way, overall the show was extremely entertaining and funny.

The second act allowed the audience to view the cast in not only a verbal acting sense, but a physical acting sense. While it was feared that the set might fall apart with how hard the actors were banging against the walls, the cast tripped and tumbled their way into people’s hearts.

One major standout was senior Preston Thomas who played Gary/Roger; his ability to convey his, slightly murderous thoughts during act two was refreshing and funny.

Sophomore Cam Burns played the nervous and easily agitated Phillip/Frederick with a certain grace. He was able to show his unique characterization through subtle actions when he was alone on the stage during times.

The rest of the cast played their parts extremely well too, providing laughter that overtook the auditorium.

Overall, while the entirety of the theatre was not sold out, the cast acted as if they were in front of thousands of people. There was an honest joy created by this cast within their unique take on this play.

The next Lansing High School Drama Production will be the Fall Musical – “Heathers”.
