'Nooses Off' premieres at MCHS

MICHIGAN CITY — The Michigan City High School Theatre Department production of "Nooses Off" premieres Friday. The play revolves around the breakdown of an amateur theater company’s murder mystery production on opening night. The props are few or nonexistent (one suitcase has to do the work of nine), the actors aren’t getting their costumes, romances are breaking down, and cast members learn the play itself might be a rip off of Agatha Christie’s “10 Little Indians.” And the audience gets to see the behind the scenes mayhem.

Performance dates are Friday and Saturday at 7 p.m., and Sunday at 2 p.m. Tickets are $5 each for students and children, $10 each for adults. 

Michigan City High School is located at 8466 W. Pahs Road.


'Betrayal' at Dunes Summer Theatre

MICHIANA SHORES — "Betrayal" opens Friday at Dunes Summer Theatre. It is a play about the forbidden love triangle. It’s told through reverse chronology, with the play beginning two years after the love affair has ended. The former lovers meet over a glass of wine and have a “polite” conversation. They tread lightly over past memories, with both tinges of regret, dangerous desires, and carefully chosen words. The play proceeds to go back in time, revealing scene-by-scene how it all unfolded, and ending with how it all began — a seductive kiss.

Tickets range from $18-20. Showtimes are Friday and Saturday at 7 p.m. and Sunday Matinee at 2 p.m. The Dunes Summer Theatre is located at 288 Shady Oak Dr.
