[November 05, 2013]  Lincoln College's Fine Arts department will wrap up their fall theater season with "Rumors," Neil Simon's 1988 farce about a New York City dinner party gone comically awry.

The cast features Lauren Stanfield and Tegan Follis, both of Lincoln; Angelique Tally and Levert Wilkins, both of Chicago; Brett Nelson, DeWitt, Iowa; Riley Dobson, Crystal Lake.; Kristin Petrelli, Bartlett; Bobby Wilhelmson, Fort Morgan, Colo.; Alexa Maxey, Elkin, N.C.; Kristin Craig, Hanover Park; and Arica Sadler, Emden.

Director Martin Holden, assistant professor of theater, is understandably excited about the show.

"‘Rumors' is one of Neil Simon's best, if not widely known, comedies. It will be a fast-paced evening of entertainment from our talented, nimble and quick-witted Lincoln College theater majors," Holden said.

The play runs Wednesday through Saturday with performances at 7:30 p.m. There will also be a 2 p.m. matinee on Sunday. All performances will be in the Meyer Theater in the Johnston Center for the Performing Arts. The play is in two acts with an intermission. Due to some adult language, viewer discretion is advised.

Cookies and other baked goods will be available for purchase during each show's intermission. Proceeds will be used to help students attend the Kennedy Center American College Theatre Festival Regional Fest in Michigan in January. There will also be a silent auction at the Friday performance.
