If you’re looking to hear a juicy rumor, head to Southwestern Community College (SWCC) tonight.

Southwestern Community College drama club performs “Rumors” by Neil Simon 7 p.m. at Southern Prairie YMCA’s performing arts center, 1201 W. Townline St.


Four high-profile couples attend an anniversary party at the home of a deputy New York City mayor and his wife. However, shortly after arriving, the guests discover that there are no servants, the deputy mayor has shot himself in the head (a flesh wound) and the mayor’s wife is missing.

Comedy ensues when, given everyone’s upper class status, they decide they need to do everything possible to conceal the events from the police and media while forming their own conclusions and opinions about what is happening around them.


The play, directed by Kelly Franklin, SWCC English instructor features Joe Larson, Aaron Kephart, Drew Esque, Jennie Stamper, Chris Fenton, Chris Allen, Wyatt Lillenthal, Dylan Fenton, Josh Cobb and Clara McKenny.

Children are welcome to attend. However, content of “Rumors” is considered adult humor.

“Rumors” is one night only. Curtains open at 7 p.m. Admission is $6 for adults and $4 for students.
