This weekend "Rumors," a Neil Simon comedy, opens at the Hudson High School auditorium. It will run two weekends and is sure to brighten up anyone's attitude with a bit of laughter.

The spring play is directed by Kari Heisler and features 10 student actors. The characters include a senate wanna-be, a financial planner, a TV Chef and a woman obsessed with the power of crystals and a psychiatrist as a start.

This Simon farce premiered in 1988 in California.

From the opening scene the comedy and confusion builds as the both the lines and action are exquisitely timed for the most impact.

The cast includes Tucker Millett, Ruby Johnson, Colin Eral, Andy Lienes, Anna Head, Chris Lueneburg, Zoe Vnak, Jordan Stewart, Travis Schultz and Charlie Johnson. The stage managers for the show are Meagan Buchannan and Paige Davidson.
