Dinner Theater
Rumors, by Neil Simon
WEDNESDAY-FRIDAY, APRIL 9, 10, & 11, 2008

Each spring, the Athenaeum’s intellectually charged interior is transformed into a world of thespians, with all the comedy, drama, and passion concomitant with their trade. This year, the Athenaeum is pleased to once again welcome Under the Lights, CMC’s very own theater troupe. Under the Lights is better known on campus as UTL, and has benefited this year from the leadership of Julian Dormady (’08) and Bradley Walters (’08). Their Dinner Theater production of Rumors (1988), a marvelously witty comedy by Neil Simon, promises to follow in the popular footsteps of UTL’s past performances.

Rumors begins with an anniversary party thrown by a prominent New York couple. However, when guests begin arriving, they discover that the host has been shot in the ear and the hostess is nowhere to be found. The play follows the pretentious socialites as they try to figure out what happened and simultaneously cover up the scandal, providing a delightful backdrop for Simon’s clever and hilarious dialogue.

The all-student cast, under the capable direction of Bradley Walters ’08, consists of: Alexandra Aznar (’08), Naomi Bagdonas (’09), Alex Hwang (’08), Cicily Keppel (HMC ’11), Julia Masnik (’08), David Pezzola (’09), Brendan Sasso (’10), Evan Sippel (’08), and Skipp Stillwell (’09).

Don’t miss this great opportunity to see your friends and classmates perform!
