‘Noises Off’ and ‘Oklahoma!’ hit Summer Theatre stage again

Summer Theatre continues with its celebration of Season 51 with two perennial favorites, “Noises Off,” June 28-July 2 and “Oklahoma!” July 13-17.

Touted as one of the funniest farce ever written, “Noises Off” returns to the MSU Summer Theatre stage under the direction of Minot State University alumnus Joe Koppinger. What can go wrong goes hilariously awry in Michael Frayne’s production” as an eclectic, dysfunctional menagerie of actors (and more than a few sardines) stumble their way through the rehearsal and performance of “Nothing On,” a riotously challenged British farce. This farce contains mature humor and innuendo, which may not be suitable for all audiences.

Love conquers the Western Indian Territory at the turn of the 20th century in Rogers and Hammerstein classic, “Oklahoma!” under the direction of Chad Gifford, MSU Summer Theatre associate director of production. Laurey (Grace Chermak), must decide between two suitors, Curley (J’Kobe Wallace), a boisterous cowboy, and his rival, Jud (Christopher Burch), an obsessive farmhand. To save Curley from certain harm, Laurey accepts Jud’s invitation to a social.

Nestled into the grassy hillside just north of the campus, the MSU amphitheater has been home to MSU Summer Theatre since 1971. Boasting exceptional views of the stage and Minot for 45 years, it is a perfect spot for a night of theater under the stars.

All performances begin at 8:30 p.m. The box office opens the evening of each performance at 7:30 p.m. Ticket prices are $12 adults, $10 seniors, students and military with ID, $8 for children (12 and under), $5 for MSU faculty and staff and summer students with current MSU ID. Northern Tier sponsors a special Military discount night Friday, July 1 and 15. Reservations are encouraged. For questions or to make reservations, call 858-3228.
