STANDISH — Called “the funniest farce ever written,” “Noises Off” presents a manic menagerie of itinerant actors rehearsing a flop called “Nothing’s On.” Doors slamming, on and offstage intrigue, a raucous love triangle, and an endless supply of errant sardines all figure in the plot of this hilarious and classically comic play.

Cast members include: Tapley Trudell of Raymond as Poppy Norton-Taylo;, Chris Roberts of Portland as Garry Lejune; Sophie Kaplan of Pownal as Brooke Ashton; Francesca Jellison of Buxton as Dotty Otley; Carmela Castro of New Gloucester as Belinda Blair; Sean Buchanan of Naples as Lloyd Dallas; Randy Hunt of Westbrook as Frederick Fellowes; Ryan Eling of Gorham as Tim Allgood; and Jeff Christo of Standish as Selsdon Mowbray. It is directed by Zachariah Stearn.

Performances of “Noises Off!” will be held at Schoolhouse Arts Center from April 5 to 14: 7 p.m. Friday, 2 and 7 p.m. Saturday and 2 p.m. Sunday. There will be an ASL interpreted performance at 2 p.m. Sunday, April 7.

Tickets are $17 for adults and $15 for students and seniors. Schoolhouse Arts Center at Sebago Lake is at 16 Richville Road, Route 114, just north of the intersection of Route 114 and Route 35.
