Noises Off May 21 - May 31, 2019  
A Noise Within Noises Off
 
Considered by many to be the funniest farce ever written, Noises Off shines a spotlight on the hilarious backstage antics of a group of beleaguered actors attempting to perform a theatrical flop called Nothing On. This play-within-a-play is a comedic triumph of slamming doors, falling trousers … and flying sardines. Written by award-winning English novelist and playwright Michael Frayn (Copenhagen, Democracy), the comedy of errors remains a crowd-pleaser more than 35 years after its debut. Catch this joyfully out-of-control British farce when it returns to A Noise Within in Pasadena with your favorite resident artists, along with a few new faces. Recommended for those 12 and older.

Cinderella Topsy Turvy May 31 - Jun 22, 2019  
Santa Monica Playhouse Cinderella Topsy Turvy
 
It's the internationally acclaimed Rudie-DeCarlo musical comedy, and it's getting a make-over as Actors' Repertory Theatre in-conjunction with All The Queen's Men presents CINDERELLA TOPSY TURVY - A Tender Gender Bender Romantic Musical Fairy Story for Pride 2019. A delightful re-imagining of the classic Cinderella tale brings you upside-down casting - half original practices, half Gilbert and Sullivan, half just plain fun. Meet a handsome Prince, silly stepsisters, a befuddled king, and an out-of-the-box steampunk Fairygodmother. Added delights are the outrageously playful period costumes and the heart-warming romance that blooms with the assistance of a glass slipper, a feather duster, and a truly magical wand. A gentle prod at stereotypical gender roles, this light-hearted send-up is a hilarious twist on the classic tale. Featuring Quint Erwin, Tiffany Haile, Sarai Jimenez, Luke Martin McMahan, Joseph Perez, Graham Silbert. Who plays what role? Guess (and you'll probably be wrong.)
 
   
Leading Ladies May 31 - Jun 15, 2019  
Whittier Center Theatre Leading Ladies
 
Two down-and-out actors without the fare back to England learn of a wealthy dowager seeking her long-lost English relatives in order to leave them her fortune. It sounds like an opportunity to act and get rich, but of course, the kink in the plan is that would-be heirs are women. And so begins a couple of wild hours of madcap action as our heroes slip in and out of costume, find romance (!), and attempt to evade the ever-watchful eye of other family members who would like the fortune for themselves. This is another fast-paced farce from Ken Ludwig, author of Lend me a Tenor and The Fox on the Fairway, and is sure to deliver a rollicking good time to all.
