From Tony award-winning writer Neil Simon, Murfreesboro Little Theatre is proud to present "Rumors."
On the eve of Charley and Myra Brocks' 10 year wedding anniversary, a party is thrown with their closest friends invited to join in the celebration. But as the guests begin to arrive, it quickly becomes clear that things are not as they should be: the hostess is missing, the host has been shot, the food in the kitchen is uncooked, and the help is nowhere to be found! First to arrive and discover the disaster, Ken and Chris Gorman do their best to protect Charley from certain scandal, attempting to keep the others from realizing that anything is amiss. But their lies get away from them once the other guests start to arrive and more and more secrets begin to come out. It soon becomes clear that a superficial gunshot wound may be the least of their troubles!
Directed by Lacy Alex DeHoff, the cast features Rob DeHoff, Elizabeth Gass, Joseph Bican, Jess Townsend, RJ Polito, Lora Langford, JT Powers, KT Turner, Lisa Kathryn Bunn and Lee Allen.
"Rumors" opens Jan. 13 and continues for two weekends through Jan 22, with a Thursday evening performance Jan. 19. Thursday through Saturday performances begin at 7 p.m. and Sunday matinees begin at 2 p.m.
Due to strong language, this show is not recommended for young children.
