NEW HAMPTON — New Hampton School presents Neil Simon's Rumors Saturday, November 9 at 7:30 pm at the school's McEvoy Theater, located off of Dr. Child's Road.

Comic complications arise when the couples decide they need to do everything possible to conceal the evening's events from the local police and the media.
