North Rockland’s student production will have a run of five shows in November

THIELLS- Opening this weekend, the Neil Simon comedy “Rumours” will be performed by the North Rockland High School Drama Society at the high school’s auditorium. The play, set in the southern-Rockland County Hudson River enclave of Sneden’s Landing, tells the story of an anniversary party gone wrong. 
 
At a large, tastefully-appointed townhouse, 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. 
 
The original production of “Rumors” opened 1988 in California. The North Rockland version will take place at the North Rockland High School auditorium, 106 Hammond Road, Thiells on November 3, 4, 16, 17 & 18, 2017. 
 
All shows will begin at 7:30 p.m. and run for approximately two hours. Ticket prices are $12 for students and seniors and $15 for adults. The November 16 show will feature a two-for-one student ticket special. Tickets can be purchased at the door, reserved by calling 845-942-3300 x4954 or by visiting the Drama Society’s Eventbrite page. 
 
Tickets must be paid for by cash or check. Checks must be made out to “NRHS Drama Society.”
