FHN Presents Rumors by Neil Simon

Plan on joining the talented students of FHN Theater as they bring Rumors by Neil Simon’s to the stage March 12-14th.    The hilarious door-slamming farce RUMORS is all about mystery, mayhem and miscommunication!  Four couples gather to celebrate the New York deputy mayor’s anniversary only to find their host and his wife are missing.  First to arrive at the party, Ken and Chris try to hide the wounded mayor from the other guests. While rumors abound, the situation takes on comedic confusion as nobody can remember who has been told what and about whom.  This is a night of theater that you don’t want to miss!    Spend an evening laughing with the whole family.
