"Rumors" by Neil Simon Opens this Weekend

“Rumors” will be presented at the MTA Theatre, 1406 N. Market Street in Monticello, at 7:30 p.m. on Feb. 25, March 3 and 4. Sunday matinee performances will be at 2:30 p.m. on Feb. 26 and March 5.
The play is set at the large townhome of the Deputy Mayor of New York, who has just shot himself. Four other couples have joined the evening, but as their host lies bleeding in the other room and confusions and miscommunications mount, the evening spins off into a classic farcical hilarity. 
“The cast and crew have been hard at work,” said Carl Sebens, the show’s director. “The audience is going to see some familiar faces, and some new ones, which we are really excited about. The set is also impressive for a theatre company our size. This is going to be a fun show, and we hope every audience will get the giggles as they go through the evening’s mishaps with these interesting characters.”
The cast includes Jon Boone (Ken Gorman), Stephanie Schneider (Chris Gorman), Jeremy Boehme (Lenny Ganz), Leslie Mitchell (Claire Ganz), Steve Wadleigh (Ernie Cusack), Amanda Orwick (Cookie Cusack), Ted Nowlin (Glenn Cooper), Chelsea Mueller (Cassie Cooper), Gil Yohnka (Officer Welch), Leta Burch (Officer Pudney)

Tickets (which include a beverage) are $12.50 and can be purchased in advance at, by phone (217) 762-2679 (ask for Lana) or in person at The Brown Bag and The Steeple Gallery Coffee House in Monticello. Tickets may also be purchased at the door, if still available.
