The Odd Couple

The Peninsula Players are proud to present The Odd Couple (Female Version) a comedy written by Samuel French and by Neil Simon, American playwright and screenwriter, who is widely regarded as one of the most successful, prolific and performed playwrights in the world. This hilarious comedy will be directed by one of Peninsula Players seasoned and adored directors, Geoffrey Davidson, who directed last years Tainted Justice, a most remarkable play.

Unger and Madison are at it again! Florence Unger and Olive Madison, that is, in this 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 The Pidgeon sisters have been replaced by the two Constanzuela brothers, but the hilarity remains the same.

Directed by Allan Haynes and Melanie Ehrlich

I know it's summer and we're all enjoying the fine weather but it's time for all you actors and actresses to think about our Christmas Panto. It will be a traditional panto with heroes and villains, music, dancing, audience participation and lots of humour.

Plot Synopsis: At her christening, Princess Aurora is blessed by a group of fairies but cursed by a wicked fairy who was inadvertantly left off the guest list. However, her life appears to be developing normally until her 17th birthday when she pricks her finger and falls asleep for a hundred years. She is awakened by a young prince from nearby Langford (who is also the son of the wicked fairy) and who is expected to marry her - but there seems to be a snag. The local shopkeeper, her son and a young fairy try to help Aurora find a solution to the snag but the wicked fairy, aided by her henchmen, does her best to thwart their plans. Will she succeed or will good triumph?

Come join our cast and you will be the first to know!

Auditions will be held at the Mary Winspear Centre in Sidney on
Thursday September 7th from 7:00 to 9:00 p.m.
Saturday September 9th from 2:00 to 4:00 p.m.
Sunday Sep 10th from 2:00 to 4:00 p.m.

Rehearsals will be on Tuesday and Thursday evenings and Sunday afternoons starting Sep 14. There will be nine performances shared between our two theatres, at the Berwick and the Mary Winspear Centre, between Dec 15 and Dec 29.

There is a fairly large cast with roles of varying complexity so we are looking for actors both experienced and new. If you can sing and dance, you will be especially welcome, although not all roles will require these talents. The only must-have requirement is a sense of fun!

Please contact Allan Haynes (cvbm@telus.net) for an audition slot and, If you would like to audition for a singing role, please come to the audition prepared to perform a song of your choice. Dancers will be taught a short sequence to be performed as a group.
