After a read-thru last week, rehearsals began in earnest tonight for Union Street Players‘ production of Neil Simon’s "The Odd Couple". The cast combines a USP new comer (Suzi Jones) with some USP veterans (Cyndi Atkins, Greg May, Mark Moreland, Wendy Vander Well) and welcomes back some USP alumni from seasons past (Sheryl Vander Linden, Jana DeZwarte, Lana Pol).
The action takes place in Olive Madison’s pig-sty of a New York apartment. It’s mid-summer in the mid-eighties and the girls are gathered for their weekly game of the popular new game, Trivial Pursuit! The obsessive-compulsive Florence Unger is late for the game, and it’s soon revealed that Florence’s husband of fourteen years has left her. The ultra-slob, Olive, invites the ultra-neat-freak, Florence, to move in with her. Let the laughter begin!
There are opportunities for volunteers to help with props, lights, sound, and general backstage help. If interested in joining the fun, please contact the director.
