Noises Off

It's a big week for Otstar Productions. They're at the Grand Theatre, Weston Super Mare raring to go with their new production of ‘Nothing On', the hilarious farce by Robin Housemonger. The company, a mixture of bright young things and, shall we say, more ‘seasoned' performers is on its last dress rehearsal and things are not going to plan. There's confusion over the sardines, professional rivalry, and an actor who is rather too fond of the booze than is good for him. It's make or break time for ‘on the skids' director Lloyd Dallas. Surely his disparate band will pull things together and not completely fall apart? Don't you believe it! The Chameleon Players are proud to present one the funniest plays ever written, and can guarantee you a great night out.
