The Neil Simon classic tells the story of Felix Ungar, a neurotic, neat freak news writer who is thrown out by his wife, and moves in with his friend Oscar Madison, a slovenly sportswriter. Despite Oscar's problems – careless spending, excessive gambling, a poorly kept house filled with spoiled food – he seems to enjoy life. Felix, however, seems utterly incapable of enjoying anything and only finds purpose in pointing out his own and other people's mistakes and foibles. Even when he tries to do so in a gentle and constructive way, his corrections and suggestions prove extremely annoying to those around him. Oscar, his closest friend, feels compelled to throw him out after only a brief time together, though he quickly realizes that Felix has had a positive effect on him.
A female version of The Odd Couple will also be cast so ladies, come out for the audition! This will be a fun show you will want to be part of! Unger and Madison are at it again! Florence Unger and Olive Madison, that is, in Neil Simon's hilarious contemporary comic classic: the female version of The Odd Couple. Instead of the poker party that begins the original version, Ms. Madison has invited the girls over for an evening of Trivial Pursuit. The Pidgeon sisters have been replaced by the two Constanzuela brothers. But the hilarity remains the same.
Auditions for both versions of The Odd Couple will be held Saturday, July 16, 5 PM - 7:30 PM and Sunday, July 17, 2 PM - 4:30 PM at ACT II Players rehearsal facility 3604 Cardinal Point Drive. At the discretion of director Austin Kelley, there may be call backs on Monday, July 18.
