Theatre Department Presents: Rumors


Theatre Department Presents: Rumors
Rumors starts Feb. 23.

Psst. If you haven't heard, the Cal Poly Pomona Theatre department will perform the side-splitting farce Rumors by beloved American playwright Neil Simon.

The production runs from Feb. 23 to March 4 in the University Theatre.

Neil Simon is synonymous with comedy having also written Biloxi Blues, The Odd Couple, Sweet Charity and Lost in Yonkers.

In Rumors, a 10th wedding anniversary party quickly goes awry when guests arrive and find no party, a bleeding host and a missing hostess. The well-meaning guests try to avoid rumors and scandal, but only manage to make things worse.

Cal Poly Pomona assistant professor Julian White is directing the play.

Rumors will be staged at 8 p.m. on Feb. 23 – 24 and March 1 – 3.  The show's final performance is at 2 p.m. on March 4. Reservations are required for a special 10 a.m. group matinee on Feb. 28. Tickets are $15 general admission and $10 for students and seniors.
