Billy Test and Friends in Johnstown

Mozart's The Magic Flute
The Magic Flute is a whimsical, fantastical tale of two men who must face obstacles of magic and mystery to find their true loves. This fully-staged production with a cast and chorus of more than 60 local singers is accompanied by an orchestra of more than 25 local musicians and will be performed in English. The celesta that will be played is the one that was used for "Mr. Rogers' Neighborhood."
When Michale Frayn's brilliant Noises Off begins, a troupe of English actors is rehearsing the sex comedy Nothing On. As we eavesdrop, the director explains his theatrical philosophy: "Bang you're on. Bang you've said it. Bang you're off." If only things would go that smoothly. But with these thespians, including the dim-witted starlet, the method actor without motivation, and the leading lady on her last legs, it's total chaos and non-stop laughter.
