Dawson Community College’s theater production of Neil Simon’s “The Odd Couple” will take the stage for two nights November 13th and 14th at 7:00 PM in the Toepke Center Theater on the DCC campus.
“The Odd Couple”, Simon’s wildly successful play ran from 1965 to 1967 and is a popular choice, 50 years later with community theater groups across the country. The 1968 film version of the play starred Walter Matthau and Jack Lemmon. The play is full of snappy one-liners and basic comedy devices; the title says it all; opposites are funny.
“This year DCC will put a unique spin on the play with a largely female cast” says the play’s director Ron Conrad. The cast includes Kyle Quale, Brenden Vetter, Chantell Bury, Bobbie Mischel, and Andrew Flakker from Glendive, MT, Caroline Kunst and Tonya Wetherelt from Forsyth, MT, Jeannette Oliphant from Joliet, MT, Sam Riordan from Butte, MT and Suela Cela from Lushnje, Albania.
“I think the audience will enjoy our approach and all the fun that results, it’s a combination of Simon’s male version and a ‘Sex in the City’ female version”, Conrad added.
If you have never seen the stage version of “The Odd Couple”, this is your chance. Even if you have seen it before, you will again be pleasantly surprised at the insights into friendship and marriage that Simon and the DCC cast gives you in the midst of steady laughter.
