Olentangy actors put on Neil Simon's farce

Olentangy High School thespians will take the stage this weekend to present Troupe 2537's annual fall production.

They'll stage Rumors, a farcical play written by Neil Simon. In the show, affluent couples gather for an anniversary party that takes a turn for the worse when the hostess and her servants are discovered missing and the host has attempted to commit suicide. The couples spend the rest of the show comparing rumors to determine the cause of the night's events and cover them up from the media and the police.

Because of mild profanity in the play, parental discretion is advised.

Actors will take the stage at 7 p.m. today, Oct. 10, and Saturday, Oct. 12 and at 2 p.m. Sunday, Oct. 13.

Tickets are $5 for students and seniors, $10 for adults, and will be available for purchase before each performance at the school, 675 Lewis Center Road. To purchase advance tickets, call the school at 740-657-4100.
