Sherman Community Players
Announces
“The Odd Couple: The Female Version”
Written by: Neil Simon
Directed by: Anthony Nelson
Featuring Allison Minton & Lori Seelig
 
The Sherman Community Players are beginning their exciting sixth-seventh season with the opening of “The Odd Couple: The Female Version” by Neil Simon.  Adapted from Simon’s original Odd Couple, this version deals with two recently separated NYC women who find themselves in need of each others help, “It’s a classic tale of two opposite personalities trying to get along, and the wackiness that ensues” Says director Anthony Nelson.  “This is a funny play that deals with two people going through divorce, the relationships with their friends, and what’s like to be back on the dating scene.”  The play follows the summer of Olive Madison (Minton) and Florence Unger (Seelig)—Olive is a slob who likes her privacy and carefree way of life, where Florence (Flo) is a neat-nick whom wants and attempts to passively control every and all situations.  “I think the material will speak to both female and male audience members; we all have those friends whom you love and support but drive you absolutely crazy; and Allison and Lori have really embodied that relationship in these two characters, its really funny” Nelson says. 
 
“The Odd Couple: Female Version” opens on October 9th and plays until the 25th, the show plays Thursday through Saturday at 730pm, and Sundays at 2pm.  For patrons whom have never been to a Sherman Community Players production, Thursday nights are bargain nights and all tickets are half-price.  There is also a $5 preview on Thursday Oct. 8th 730pm, cash or check accepted at the door only.  Season memberships are also on sale for both Main stage and Theatricks’; they can be purchased at the performance of The Odd Couple and online.
