Today Broadway’s award-winning comedy, “The Play That Goes Wrong”, will take center stage at The Tennessee Performing Arts Center (TPAC).

Created by England’s Mischief Theatre, “The Play That Goes Wrong,”  follows the classic murder mystery “Murder at Haversham Manor” and its disastrous opening night. Throughout the night, actors forget lines, cues are missed and chaos ensues.

“Hearing an audience roar with laughter for two hours at every performance is such a rush.  Knowing we’re bringing that kind of unadulterated joy to so many people every day feels quite special,” said Ned Noyes.

Ned Noyes began his acting career as far back as elementary school and began his professional career while enrolled at Northwestern University. Currently Noyes plays the role of Max in “The Play That Goes Wrong.”

“I was fortunate enough to see the original Mischief Theatre company perform this play many times, and I was so taken by everyone’s performances.  Max was an easy favorite, as he’s afforded many opportunities to “misbehave” in ways you’re never permitted to as a professional actor.  It’s a once-in-a-lifetime kind of role, and a total joy to perform his journey every night.”

Earlier this year Noyes had the opportunity to perform his role in the Broadway production of “The Play That Goes Wrong.”

To him the experience was: “A dream come true!  Everyone working on this show has such a huge heart and being part of the first American cast of this show was thrilling.”

Lipscomb students are invited to see what the talk is all about starting this Tuesday, Oct. 9th. TPAC is offering students a ticket code that can be used online or at the Box Office – $30 tickets for under 30. Visit to claim your discount or use the code THEPLAY30 on the TPAC website.

“It’s pure entertainment, and it’s unique in how it unfolds and surprises in so many ways the audience is unprepared for.  There’s something in this show for everyone,” said Noyes.
