‘Nooses Off’ coming to MCHS

MICHIGAN CITY — The Michigan City Theatre Department will be presenting ‘Nooses Off,’ a play-wthin-a-play whodunit starting April 26.

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 April 26 and 27 at 7 p.m., and April 28 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.

Tito Sanchez-Williams, a graduate of the New School of Drama in NYC with a Master or Fine Arts in Acting, returns this summer to teach the Youth and Teen Acting Classes. In these 5 week, fun-packed courses, young actors will learn skills to help them listen, focus, and find their inner voice.

During this summer program your young actor can develop their creative abilities, learn team work required for performing, vocal projection, articulation, timing, improve their listening and memorization skills, confidence and grace. The summer culminates in a showcase celebrating your young actor’s new found talents. Each class is limited to 12 students, so reserve your spot early. Price: $125
