HOUSTON —The San Jacinto College South theatre department presents Neil Simon’s “Rumors: A Farce,” opening Friday, April 29.
In this comedy, the Deputy Mayor of New York has just shot himself. Though only a flesh wound, four couples are about to experience a severe attack of farce. Gathering for their 10th wedding anniversary, the host lies bleeding in the other room and his wife is nowhere in sight. His lawyer, Ken, and wife Chris, must get "the story" straight before the other guests arrive. As the confusions and miscommunications mount, the evening spins off into classic farcical hilarity. Ralph Ehntholt has returned to San Jacinto College South to direct the cast that includes: Samantha Agnew, Daniel Bourque, Amanda Castaneda, Alejandro Chavez, Emily Early, Stacey Greaber, Christopher Huynh, Mariska Pope, Andy Powell, and Jacob Sanchez.
“Rumors,” runs April 29 and 30 at 8 p.m., May 1 at 2 p.m., and May 5, 6, and 7 at 8 p.m. Performances take place in the Marie Spence Flickinger Fine Arts Building, located on the South campus at 13735 Beamer Road in Houston. Tickets are $10 for adults and $8 for students and seniors. Doors open 30 minutes prior to curtain. No late seating will be allowed.
