104 - CAPE GAZETTE, Friday, Oct. 15 - Oct. 18, 2004 Possum Point Players getting set for 'Noises Off' A visit to Possum Hall right now make someone think the set for the next show has been put to- gether wrong. It looks inside-out and backwards, and in a way, it is. As things come together for Pos- sum Point Players' production of the smash comedy "Noises Off," the set is revolving as it's evolv- ing. In Michae ! Frayn's Unique farce about a farce, the back of the set is as functional as the front. In a mir- acle brought about by the out- standing set construction team at the theater, the set turns around so that in Act 2, the audience gets an hilarious look at, the uproar that takes place behind the scenes of a fictional show called "Nothing On." The internal play of "Noises Off" - "Nothing On"- is an active traditional farce, full of slamming doors, with people and props coming and going in a seemingly random fashion, and the cast of "Nothing On" has difficulty get- Rocktober ting the hang of it. Then they exit from the play, only to find they are making an entrance into an even worse nightmare backstage, as the destructive relationships among cast and crew begin to de- velop into jealous rages and missed cues. It might sound strange to come to the theatre to watch what hap- pens backstage, but cast member Cassandra Petersen of Milton can attest that "Though-I've never been in a show with this much in- sanity happening behind the scenes, I have witnessed or been a part of backstage games from cards to squirt guns, and lots of joking around. Even," she adds, "some lost tempers, though not on the same scale as 'Noises Off.'" John Hulse, who plays the stage manager of "Nothing On", con- siders that, "This goes beyond slapstick. It's really two farces - one on stage and one off that just can't be kept separate! It be- comes one single, collective, Doug Segree, a favorite during the summer at the Starboard, will perform dur- ing Rocktober Fest. nervous breakdown." By all accounts, even the hearsals for "Noises Off" good fun. The cast is discovel that life imitates art, as they : themselves behaving in the s manner as their characters.
