Auditions planned for Stone Arch play

LEWISTOWN — Stone Arch Players will be holding auditions for the Winter Production “RUMORS,” by Neil Simon, at 7 p.m. Wednesday, and at 1 p.m. Sunday, Oct. 31, at the Theater-in-the-Park at Kish Park.

The cast has five men and five women, with some flexibility in ages. Show dates are Feb. 25 and 26, March 4 through 6, and March 11 through 13.

The play is a in the typical Neil Simon fashion — rapid humorous dialogue and hilarious physical comedy. The play takes place at a large, tastefully-appointed Sneden’s Landing townhouse where the Deputy Mayor of New York has just shot himself. Though only a flesh wound, four couples are about to experience a severe attack of farce.

Gathering for their 10th wedding anniversary, the host lies bleeding in the other room, and his wife is nowhere in sight. His lawyer, Ken, and wife, Chris, must get the story straight before the other guests arrive. As the confusions and miscommunications mount, the evening spins off into classic farcical hilarity.
