SMHS' Production of Noises Off 4/23-4/26


The award-winning San Mateo High School Drama Company presents Noises Off from April 23rd to 26th.  Directed by Virginia Musante, Noises Off takes you behind the scenes of a second-rate theater company producing a third-rate farce, where the road to theatrical acclaim is marred by costume mishaps, dropped lines and backstage romances that threaten the success of the play within a play. Performances take place Thursday April 23 through Sunday April 26 at the San Mateo Performing Arts Center. Evening performances, Thursday through Saturday, begin at 7:30pm, and Sunday's matinee begins at 2pm. Adult tickets are $15; youth and seniors are $10. Tickets may be purchased online at www.smhsdrama.org or by calling 650-558-2375. All middle school and high students with valid student identification can purchase tickets at the door for $5.
