The Odd Couple: Audition Information

The Odd Couple: Audition Information
 
The Odd Couple is a 1965 Broadway play by Neil Simon, followed by a successful film and television series, as well as other derivative works and spin offs, many featuring one or more of the same actors. The plot concerns two mismatched roommates, one neat and uptight, the other more easygoing and slovenly.

Show dates are February 2nd, 3rd, 4th, 9th, 10th, 11th & 12th. Rehearsals will begin with a cast & crew meeting and read through on December 19th & December 20th. We will reconvene after the holidays beginning January 3rd and working through until show time! If you have questions, you may email them to the director at codiev@msn.com.

All characters are open for audition with the exception of the role of Felix. Characters may be of any ethnicity, shape or size.

Male characters should be able to appear to be in their mid-forties. A Brooklyn, New York, New Jersey accent is preferable.

Female characters may be of any ethnicity, and should appear to be anywhere from 30 to 50. A British accent is a must!

Characters
Oscar Madison: A slovenly, recently divorced, sportswriter.
Felix Unger: A fastidious, hypochondriac news writer whose marriage is ending.
Murray: A NY policeman, one of Oscar and Felix’s poker buddies.
Speed: One of the poker buddies. Gruff and sarcastic, often picking on Vinnie and Murray.
Vinnie: One of the poker buddies. Vinnie is mild-mannered and henpecked, making him an easy target for Speed’s verbal barbs.
