PERRYSBURG TOWNSHIP, OH – Hysterical comedy will fill the Center for Fine and Performing Arts’ Mainstage Theatre as Owens Community College presents the student production of “Noises Off,” April 12-14 and 19-21.
The first of several performances will occur at 7:30 p.m. on Friday, April 12 in the College’s Mainstage Theatre. Owens’ Toledo-area Campus is located on Oregon Road in Perrysburg Township.
“Owens Community College’s Department of Fine and Performing Arts is excited to present such a fun and lighthearted theatrical production to Northwest Ohio theatergoers,” said Jeremy Meier, Owens Assistant Professor of Fine and Performing Arts. “Attendees are in for an evening of comedy and a few surprises, which will make for an unforgettable theatre experience.”
Written by Michael Frayn, “Noises Off” tells the comedic story of backstage and onstage antics involving a group of theatre performers attempting to present the production “Nothing On”. An unending number of theatrical blunders and hysterical personal adventures serve as the focal point to the chaotic production.

Owens students and community members involved in the production as cast members include John Toth of Toledo, Jamie Ramlawi of Perrysburg, Amber Johnson of Toledo, Kenneth Taylor of Toledo, William Toth of Toledo, Amber Breault-Albain of Toledo, James MacFarlane of Toledo, Emily Pheils of Rossford and Matthew Johnston of Maumee.
