South Tahoe High School’s spring production of Neil Simon’s “Rumors” is set to continue at 7 p.m. Friday and Saturday, April 1-2, in the high school’s TADA Theatre.

“I love ‘Noises Off’ by Michael Frayn, and I was looking for something similar,” school drama program director Nannette Niven said of the choice. “It’s a fast-paced farce.”

“It’s kind of a murder mystery except no one’s dead,” senior actor Hunter Turney said. “It’s funny. I think it’s going to be a good show.”

Turney described the final performance for her and her fellow seniors as “bittersweet.”

“I feel a part of not just the cast, but it’s like a family,” she said.

Satirizing the mystery genre, the play is set in the late 1980s in the home of fictional New York deputy mayor Charlie Brock and his wife Myra. Guests arrive for the couple’s 10th anniversary to find Charlie shot and Myra missing — rumors and speculation ensue.

“No one is sure of what is going on,” Niven said, describing the plot. “They’re almost never sure of what’s going on until the final moments of the play.”

“I really like it,” junior Zane Brady said.

The play stars Turney, Brady, Kiva McCollum, Ivy Alvarez, Tyler Martin, Ian Sielsch, Caroline Krolicki, Trae Vincent, L.C. Chappell and Sophie Caputa.

Tickets are $10 for adults and $5 for students 18 and under. The play is recommended for middle-school aged children and up.

South Tahoe High School is located at 1735 Lake Tahoe Blvd. in South Lake Tahoe.
