Brunswick Little Theatre Auditions - The Odd Couple (Female Version)

Brunswick Little Theatre will be holding auditions for Neil Simon's (Female Version) on Monday and Tuesday, December 15 and 16, 2008 beginning at 6:30 PM at Building F on the campus of .blt odd couple logo_260

The Odd Couple was revised by Neil Simon in 1985 for a female cast (Sally Struthers and Rita Moreno starred). The play ran on Broadway for 295 performances and was directed by Gene Saks. It was based on the same story line and same lead characters, now called Florence Ungar and Olive Madison. When prim housewife Florence Unger’s 15 year marriage fails, she moves in with the slob-of-the-universe news show producer Olive Madison. The six women in the show have traded in the male version’s poker game for Trivial Pursuit, where the character's personalities are more fully developed than in the male version. Click here for more specific info on each of the characters.

The show will be directed by Thom Clemmons and will run in two venues - 7:30 PM March 6-8, 2009 at on the campus of Brunswick Community College, about 20 minutes south of Wilmington off of Highway 17, and 8 PM March 13-15 at at 111 Grace Street in downtown Wilmington. Roles are available for six women ages 30 to 50 and two males who play the Costazuela brothers ages 30 to 40. The show can be cast somewhat older or younger.

...I was helping out at Monday's auditions and can tell you from the read-throughs, that the dialog "snaps, crackles, and pops" in typical Neil Simon fashion. This is a strong cast and I know they will do it justice and THEN SOME!!!
