AUDITIONS - "The Odd Couple (Female version)"

Unger and Madison are at it again! Florence Unger and Olive Madison, that is! This is the hysterical, gender-bending twist to Neil Simon’s original male version which has become a comic classic in it’s own right. 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 with the two Constanzuela brothers and hilarity ensues with a cast of crazy characters.  Performances will be the first two weekends in October.
Roles Available:
