Opening night


Steve Gillespie / Daily Press
Jana Gibbs (as Chris Gorman), and Ronald Spence (as Ken Gorman) rehearse a scene from Neil Simon's "Rumors," which opens tonight at the Collins Theatre in downtown Paragould. Presented by the Greene County Fine Arts Council, the production is under the direction of Joy Robinson. The farce centers around four couples at a townhouse where the Deputy Mayor of New York has just shot himself. Although it is only a flesh wound, the host of his 10th wedding anniversary party lies bleeding in the other room while his wife is nowhere in sight. The production may not be suitable for children due to adult language and humor. Tonight's performance begins at 7:30 p.m. Show times are 2 p.m. and 7:30 p.m. Saturday, and 2 p.m. Sunday. For more information visit the website www.gcfac.org. See more cast photos on Page 5A.
