PARAMUS, N.J. – The Bergenstages theatre troupe presents its final production of the season, “Noises Off,” a classic comedy showcasing a story within a story, beginning Friday, April 5 at 7:30 p.m. in Bergen Community College’s Anna Maria Ciccone Theatre (400 Paramus Road).

Written by playwright Michael Frayn, this comedic farce presents a manic menagerie of itinerant actors rehearsing a play called “Nothing’s On.” The story centers on the backstage antics of the actors and the chaos that ensues when it seems like everything is going wrong.
