Old Farms Theater Company Puts on Most Challenging Show Yet
This winter, the Old Farms Theater Company took on one of the biggest theatrical challenges yet in performing Michael Frayn's Noises Off. A play within a play, a program within a program, a massive set, and winter weather throwing a wrench in everyone's plans make this production one of the most rewarding experiences for our cast and crew.
