FRIDAY – SATURDAY
Theatre Ink* at Newton North High School
Nov 1-3 at 7:30pm | $7
RUMORS by Neil Simon Directed by Dan Fabrizio Rumors depicts one uproarious night in the lives of four wealthy couples where everything that can go wrong, does. With their hostess missing and their host mysteriously injured, the party guests must do their best to avoid any rumors spreading that could jeopardize their snooty status. Full of sharp wit and hilarious physical comedy, Rumors pokes fun at today’s upper crust with a nod towards the classic farce. November 1st, 2nd, and 3rd, 2012 at 7:30 pm. In the Performing Arts Center Tickets $7.00 at www.theatreink.net
