Lakewood Theatre Company will hold open auditions to complete the cast of “Rumors” on Dec. 29. Director Joe Theissen is seeking two men, ages 30 to 50, and two women, ages 20 to 30, to complete the cast. All ethnicities are encouraged to audition. All roles receive remuneration. Call 503-635-3901 to reserve an audition appointment.

“Rumors,” a comedy by Neil Simon, is about several affluent couples who gather in the posh suburban residence of one couple for a dinner party to celebrate their hosts’ 10th anniversary. However, they discover there are no servants, the hostess is missing and the host — the deputy mayor of New York City — has shot himself through the earlobe.

Comic complications arise when, given everyone’s upper-class status, they decide they need to do everything possible to conceal the evening’s events from the local police and the media.

Those auditioning should bring a resume and an 8x10 glossy photo, as well as prepare a one- to two-minute contemporary comic monologue appropriate to the style of the show and be prepared to read from the script if asked.
