The Odd Couple to grace the Red Lodge stage

The Red Lodge Theater Company is at it again as they present Neil Simon’s comedy classic “The Odd Couple” (female version.) 

Unger and Madison-- Florence Unger and Olive Madison, that is, are at it again in this hilarious contemporary comic classic. 

Instead of the poker party that begins the original version, Madison has invited the girls over for an evening of Trivial Pursuit.  

Olive and Florence have very different personalities. Where Olive is messy, untidy, and unconcerned about the state of her apartment, Florence is obsessively clean, tidy, and obsessed with hygiene. 

Olive’s easy-going outlook on life soon clashes with Florence’s highly-strung neurotic tendencies, testing their friendship to the limit. When Olive organizes a double date with the Costazuela brothers, their differences come to a head and sparks fly.

The cast is headed by Bobbie Wooldridge taking on the role of Olivia-the female version of Oscar Madison and Guynema Terry as the irritating Florence (Felix Unger.) The cast boasts newcomers Zackary Beard, Andrea Keeney, and high schooler-Gracie Andrews.  Rounding out the production are regulars Becci Larson, Dan Erfurdt, and Diane Goedde.  

The play is directed by Edward Terry. The curtain rises on the play March 9-10 and March 16-17 in the Old Roosevelt school.  Tickets are $10 and can be purchased at the Pollard Hotel and at the door. Show begins at 7:15 p.m.
