Shuswap Theatre’s first play of the new season is the hilarious comedy, The Odd Couple, one of Neil Simon’s best.

Felix Unger is depressed and suicidal after his wife throws him out. It is poker night and Felix ends up at the apartment of his best friend, Oscar Madison, who lives alone since his divorce.

Felix, a compulsive neat freak, moves in with Oscar, a self-proclaimed slob.

Can two complete opposites live together without killing each other?

Auditions for the play, directed by Julia Body, will take place at the theatre on Wednesday Sept. 3 and Thursday, Sept. 4 at 7 p.m.

The cast consists of six men and two women, age range approximately 30 to 60. For more information or a copy of the script, contact Body at 250-833-1496 or send an email.

Anyone interested in being on the crew should also contact Body.

Props and set decor are particularly important to this show. The show runs from Oct. 24 to Nov. 8.
