Rumor Has It!

It's that time again!  The Whittier Community Theatre is currently presenting Rumors, a comedy by Neil Simon.

Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright Neil Simon's timeless farce, Rumors, opens with two sophisticated, affluent couples arriving at an upper-crust Manhattan anniversary party to discover their hostess is missing and their host is unconscious!

It appears the host, who happens to be the deputy mayor of New York, has accidentally shot himself. Though the wound itself is minor, the situation causes a major commotion as the gathered go to elaborate and zany lengths to protect his reputation and keep the police and press from finding out the truth.

The resultant complicated, crazy series of misunderstandings makes for a delightful evening, even as the characters become embroiled in an hilariously tightening web of deceit.

Be warned, Neil Simon's language is often a bit coarse, and I've noticed there is a "Parental Advisory - Adult Language" disclaimer on the promotional materials from the Community Theatre.

There are two more weekends with shows Fridays and Saturdays: June 5, 6 and 12, 13 at 8 p.m. There is also a Sunday Matinee on Sunday, June 7th at 2:30 p.m.

Ticket Prices are $15 for Adults, $10 for Seniors (62+), Juniors (18 and under), Students and Military with ID.

Looking for something to do this weekend? Come join us for a fun evening!
