A perennial favorite, The Odd Couple, written by Neil Simon, centers on Felix Unger, a fastidious, neat freak writer who has been thrown out by his wife, and his friend, Oscar Madison, a slovenly, divorced but fun-loving sportswriter who he moves in with. Rounding out the cast are the friends they play poker with weekly and the irresistible Pigeon sisters who live upstairs.

Rehearsals will be held Sundays, Mondays and Wednesdays beginning February 27. Please bring your calendars to note any potential conflicts on your audition form. Tech week begins on Sunday, April 16. All cast and crew members must be available for tech week as well as all show dates which are April 21, 22, 23 and 28, 29 and 30, 2023.
