by Neil Simon

September 25 - October 18, weekends

Rumors begins when an evening gala is planned to celebrate the tenth anniversary of Myra and Charley Brock. Guests are arriving two by two, but the host and hostess are nowhere to be found and, although the food is laid out in the kitchen, the cook is missing. Charley Brock, the deputy mayor of New York City, has shot himself through the earlobe. Is it an attempted suicide?

Comic complications arise when the upper-crust guests do everything in their power to keep the evening’s events from the police and the press.

This production is recommended for adults only and contains strong language. It is inappropriate for young children.

Rumors is directed by Lee Stubbs, who most recently directed Mousetrap at the Wimberley Playhouse and performed in Rose’s Dilemma and Man of La Mancha. Linda Addeo is producer and her most recent credit was producer of last season’s Christmas Belles.

The cast of Rumors includes a number of familiar faces and several new ones. Whitney Marlett Mollahan last appeared on the Playhouse stage in Christmas Belles. Perry Redden also appeared in Christmas Belles and wowed the audience as Elvis. Deanna Lalich most recently performed in the chorus of Stop the World, I Want To Get Off. Ted Kozlowski last appeared several seasons ago in Six Dance Lessons in Six Weeks.

Although newcomers to the Wimberley Playhouse, Carol and David Cain both have extensive backgrounds in all phases of live and recorded performances. Other newcomers to the Playhouse are David Schneider (president of the Gaslight Baker Theatre in Lockhart), Cindy Forsyth and Rick Fitzgerald.

Rumors runs Friday, September 25 to Sunday, October 18. Friday and Saturday performances begin at 8:00 p.m. Sunday matinees begin at 2:30pm. Tickets ($18, opening night champagne reception $25) can be purchased online at or through the box office at 512-847-0575.
