Neil Simon's Rumors will make you laugh out loud...a lot!

Sierra College Theatre Arts Department announces its fall production of Rumors, by Neil Simon. The show runs October 24, through November 2, 2014 and is directed by Scott Adams.

Rumors takes place in a large, tastefully renovated, Victorian house in Sneden's Landing, New York where the Deputy Mayor has just shot himself. Though only a flesh wound, four couples experience a severe attack of Farce! Gathering for their tenth wedding anniversary, the host, Charley Brock lies bleeding in the other room and his wife, Myra is nowhere in sight. His lawyer, Ken and wife Chris must get "the story" straight before the other guests arrive. As the confusions and mis-communications mount, the evening spins off into classic farcical hilarity.

Performance dates and times are as follows:

  •     Friday, October 24, at 8:00 pm
  •     Saturday, October 25 at 8:00 pm
  •     Sunday, October 26 at 2:00 pm
