What a treasure we have in James Ball at the Mingus Union High School's drama department. And what a treat is to be experienced at "Rumors," the latest offering from James and the A.T.O.R.T. players.
Ten young people kept the action rolling along in professional style in this hugely humorous play by Neil Simon. It must have been challenging enough for the actors to learn the lines, but to deliver them at break-neck speed as they did, never for a moment losing sight of the impact on the play as a whole, was really amazing.
I urge the community to support James Ball's theater program, not only with monetary contributions, which are needed continually and greatly appreciated, but by attending this production - and others - in the hundreds. Attendees will not be disappointed, and these young Thespians deserve a large enthusiastic audience, and your thunderous applause.
The play runs through next weekend, with performances on Friday, Nov. 8, and Saturday, Nov. 9, at 7 p.m., and a matinee performance on Sunday Nov. 10 at 3 p.m. Don't miss it!! Call 634-7531 for ticket details.
