Nicolet Welding students help construct Noises Off theater set
April 1, 2013
Nicolet College Welding student Dustin White from Eagle River, pictured here, took a day of his Spring Break recently to help construct the rather elaborate theater set for the upcoming Nicolet Players production of Noises Off.
The metal framework is so large that it had to be built in pieces in the Welding lab by White and other students and then hauled into the Nicolet College Theatre and welded together right on the stage.
The comedy is structured as a play within a play about an ambitious director and his troupe of inept actors. As the cast and crew attempt to put together a comedy called Nothing On, nothing goes right. Actually, it’s an unmitigated disaster, rife with misplaced props, missed cue lines, mad love affairs, and backstage shenanigans fueled by rivalries. In the final act, onstage and backstage coalesce into a hilarious collective nervous breakdown.
