Roundtown Players’ production of “Rumors” by Neil Simon opens this weekend on Friday, March 10 and runs through Sunday, March 19. This hilarious farce centers on a group of friends who gather for an anniversary party, only to learn the host has been shot! Afraid of a scandal, the group must come up with a cover, but can anyone get the story straight before the cops arrive? Sit back for a night of miscommunication, door slamming and chaos that will keep you on the edge of your seat!
Order your tickets online, or call 740-474-5856 to reserve tickets by phone.
We’re excited to announce the following shows for our next upcoming season. To celebrate our 50th Anniversary, we’ve selected shows that RTP has previously performed:
Guys and Dolls (musical)
music and lyrics by Frank Loesser
book by Jo Swerling and Abe Burrows
The Rocky Horror Show (musical)
book, music and lyrics by Richard O’Brien
Our Town (drama)
written by Thornton Wilder
Something’s Under the Bed (children’s musical)
written by Marcia Gunder Schneider
The Foreigner (comedy)
written by Larry Shue
The shows are listed in no particular order, and we do not have any audition or performance dates at this time. We are currently seeking directors for each show, so if you are interested, please send an email with your name and phone number to Tahrea Maynard at email@example.com to receive an application. The application deadline for “Guys and Dolls” is March 30; the deadline for any of the other shows is May 30.
As part of our 50th Anniversary Season celebration, we asked our patrons to vote for their favorite musical in an online survey, and “Guys and Dolls” was the clear winner. Previously performed as part of our 1977-1978 season, this show will be revived in our 2017-2018 season, along with other great shows from RTP’s past, and we’re still looking for talented directors to bring these shows to the stage. Send an email with your name and phone number to Tahrea Maynard at firstname.lastname@example.org to receive an application.
