One of the funniest plays ever written, Noises Off takes you behind the scenes of a less-than-excellent British theatre company as it mounts a mediocre farce called Nothing On. Each act of the show presents Act One of the play-within-a-play, first at the dress rehearsal before opening, next at a Wednesday matinee performance one month later, and finally at the end of the run. Without giving away all the surprises, let’s just say that things don’t go very well. This hilarious farce will be directed by Virginia Musante, who staged last year’s delightful production of The Drowsy Chaperone.

About SMHS Drama

San Mateo High School is the home of one of the Bay Area’s finest and most comprehensive high school drama programs. Offering courses in Drama, Musical Theatre and Cinema and Society, students are exposed to the dramatic arts in multiple forms and formats. Coursework provides students with hands-on academic opportunities in acting, directing, design and choreography (often in conjunction with San Mateo High’s highly acclaimed dance and music departments).

In addition to its high-level classroom work, San Mateo High School produces 3 exceptional quality shows each year in the newly renovated state-of-the-art on-campus performing arts center. Boasting multiple awards from both San Jose Stage Company’s Top Honors and American Musical Theatre of San Jose’s Honors, San Mateo High School has developed a reputation for excellence in drama education and performance. By providing a robust drama curriculum, San Mateo High School is developing students’ skills in numerous areas emphasized by California’s recently-implemented Common Core curriculum, including real-world problem-solving, collaborative learning and communication.

Most importantly, San Mateo High School’s drama program provides students the opportunity to develop a time-honored craft: telling stories, using a toolkit comprised of their voices, bodies and imaginations, while testing their maturing senses of reasoning and emotion. And, by making high-quality productions accessible to the greater San Mateo-Foster City-Burlingame community, San Mateo High’s drama students are educating the next generation of audience members.
