O’FallonTheatreWorks plays for laughs with the behind-the-scenes farce, Noises Off, at the O’Fallon Municipal Centre

The O’FallonTheatreWorks production of the comedy, Noises Off – reputed to be one the funniest farces ever written – is scheduled to be performed on Friday, Saturday and Sunday, March 4-6 and 11–13, on the stage at the O’Fallon Municipal Centre (City Hall), 100 North Main Street, O’Fallon, Missouri 63366.

Winner of a Tony Award for Best Play, Noises Off is a hilarious play within a play. Taking its title from a theatrical term for sounds coming from off-stage, Noises Off opens on a dress rehearsal for Nothing’s On with a lot of door slamming, baffled performers who miss entrances, exits and their lines, and props with a mind of their own. During the second act, the audience sees Nothing’s On from backstage, where pandemonium reigns as the actors’ relationships deteriorate. By act three, Nothing’s On is at the end of its run and the actors are undermining their fellow actors’ performances to the point that the plot falls apart, anything goes, and the actors must ad lib their way to a riotous conclusion. The comedy includes adult humor and situations.

O’Fallon’s Historic Preservation Commission sponsors Black History Month display

In honor of Black History Month, O’Fallon’s Historic Preservation Commission has set up a display honoring the history of African Americans in the City of O’Fallon. The display of photos – some more than 75 years old – features portraits of some of O’Fallon’s earliest African American residents. The photos are on display in the Rotunda and Lobby on the first floor of the O’Fallon Municipal Center (City Hall). The display is free to view and open to the public Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. – 5 p.m. throughout the month of February.

“Today, we know O’Fallon as a diverse suburban community with grand subdivisions and bustling restaurants and stores, but this City has a long history that stretches more than 160 years,” said Jim Frain, who put the display together and is a member of the Historic Preservation Commission. “O’Fallon – like many Midwestern towns of the early 20th Century – was once a largely segregated town where a strong African-American community grew on several blocks in the City, known as ‘The Hill.’ The area included churches and schools and a ‘blacks-only’ cemetery called Sage Chapel Cemetery. The Cemetery was founded in 1881 as a burial site for former slaves and their descendants. Many of the original tombstones still stand at the site along Veterans Memorial Parkway.
