'Rumors' auditions to be held at AAAA

The Alexandria Area Arts Association (AAAA) will hold auditions for its winter production, Rumors, by Neil Simon.

When the deputy mayor of New York shoots himself, inflicting a flesh wound, four couples are suddenly thrust into a severe attack of farce.

The farce comedy, written by the playwright of The Odd Couple and Brighton Beach Memoirs, opened on Broadway in 1988 and ran for 535 performances, earning a Tony Award for featured actor Christine Baranski.

Auditions will be held Monday and Tuesday, December 3-4 at 6:30 p.m. at the AAAA Theatre in Alexandria.

Director Ann Hermes is looking for adult men and women for this production. Auditions will be by cold reading, so there is nothing to prepare. People need only attend one audition.

The AAAA production will run February 8, 9, 15 and 16 at 7:30 p.m. with Sunday matinees February 10 and 17 at 2 p.m.

Scripts are available to check out from the AAAA Box Office. For more information, call (320) 762-8300.
