February 15th-27th, 2022: Arts Club Theatre Company’s Noises Off by Michael Frayn


Noises Off was a farcical play about a rather motley acting troupe trying to put on a play of their own. There was plenty of laughter to be had with the arguments, miscues, sardines and more baked into the show.

Performances took place every day, except for Mondays, between February 15th and the 27th. Ticket prices ranged between $45 and $75 (plus service fees).

To learn more about this show click Noises Off at the Massey or see our Review About the Play.

About Massey Theatre

When Massey Theatre first opened in 1949 it was the largest theatre in the province. Renowned musicians and performers from around the world have graced the theatre’s stage for over 70 years, and they continue to do so today.

The theatre was constructed in a proscenium style, meaning that it has a distinguishable arc that extends out from the stage to the high ceiling.

The Massey Theatre proudly supports and showcases up-and-coming performers and local community groups. In addition to being a place where you can enjoy concerts and live theatre, people can also rent the facilities. See the Massey Theatre website for details about bookings and technical information.
