Dreamweavers show ‘Nooses Off’ playing Oct. 25-27

The set is ready, the costumes are ready and the actors are ready – all that is missing is an audience ready to have fun at this weekend’s DreamWeavers production of “Nooses Off,” a zany, madcap physical comedy with non-stop action.
Audiences love physical comedies for the pure entertainment value and fun. Actors love them for the same reason – they give actors an opportunity to be challenged, but also to really open up, let loose and have a lot of fun with their crazy character.
The show runs Friday through Sunday, Oct. 25-27, with evening shows on Friday and Saturday at 7 and a matinee on Sunday at 2 p.m. Tickets can be purchased from 2-6 p.m. today and Thursday, Oct. 24, at the Historic Savannah Theater box office and one hour before each show at the box office.
In “Nooses Off,” we take a look behind the scenes of an upcoming theater production and a puzzling murder mystery all in one. Written by Don Zolidis, the show is a play-within-a-play, incorporating the investigation of the cast-within-the-cast.
The whole thing is a spoof on the award winning 1982 play by British playwright Michael Frayn, “Noises Off,” complete with a wacky cast, struggling actors, mixed emotions and eccentricities, and frayed nerves.
Essentially, everything a theatrical group experiences during preparation for a show, and in this case, the best seat in the house is backstage – because that’s the vantage point the audience gets to watch from.
In “Nooses Off,” a small amateur theater company’s whodunit hurtles towards opening night – but the real mystery is whether the cast and crew can get this obvious theatrical disaster to curtain call.
It won’t be easy, because the costume designer’s bent on revenge, the actors are wrapped up in a revolving door of “showmances,” one suitcase plays the role of nine, and the playwright won’t admit that his play, “Nine Little Indians,” might owe a little something to Agatha Christie.
And then, of course, there is the problem of the dead body. Lots of hilarious characters, ridiculous situations and puzzling clues will keep everyone guessing.
