Synopsis

Neil Simon’s revision of his hugely successful play, The Odd Couple, sees the lead characters transformed into Olive Madison and Florence Unger. Olive and their group of girlfriends are enjoying their weekly Trivial Pursuit night in Olive’s messy and ill-equipped apartment. As the game continues, Florence arrives, fresh from being dumped by her husband. Fearful that the neurotic Florence might attempt suicide, Olive invites her to move in as her roommate. However, 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.

Olive Madison (Lead) Female 20+ a successful television producer; she is intelligent, and wisecracking, with a good sense of humor, and she’s a complete slob; she has an encyclopedic understanding of sports.

Florence (Flo) Unger (Lead) Female 20+ very well-groomed, and neat; has just broken up with her husband; she takes herself very seriously, likes to clean, decorate, and cook; she is intelligent and warm-hearted, but has no
sense of humor (at least about herself).

Sylvie (supporting) Female 18+ desperately trying to stop smoking, and so sucks on lollipops or chews gum; she can get irritated with her friends, but has a good sense of humor, especially about her husband; and, yes, she is pregnant in the last scene.

Renee (supporting) Female 18+ Sylvie’s best friend, can be very plain-spoken, especially when she points out Olive’s failings as a hostess–and then Flo’s; she is single and dating a doctor.

Vera (supporting) Female 18+ very sweet, very nice, somewhat spacey, and, although quite smart, is often a step or two behind her friends; she’s very funny, but doesn’t realize it.

Mickey (supporting) Female 18+ a police officer, who is down-to-earth, plain-talking, and has a good understanding of people; she tries very hard to be in control of all situations.

Manolo Costazuela (supporting) Male 18+ handsome, very well-groomed, and Spanish with a Castilian accent; he is every woman’s dream date and showers both Olive and Flo with attention; he must have good comic timing, as he gets very emotional; he is sensitive and appreciates Florence’s sensitivity.

Jesus Costazuela (supporting) Male 18+ sensitive emotional spanish accent passionate boyish brother romantic

The Game’s Afoot Opening Friday Nov. 1, 7:30 PM Call 352-746-7606 for Tickets

It is December 1936, and Broadway star William Gillette, admired the world over for his leading role in the play Sherlock Holmes, has invited his fellow cast members to his Connecticut castle for a weekend of revelry. But when one of the guests is stabbed to death, the festivities in this isolated house of tricks and mirrors quickly turn dangerous. It is then up to Gillette himself, as he assumes the persona of his beloved Holmes, to track down the killer before the next victim appears. The danger and hilarity are non-stop in this glittering whodunit set during the Christmas holidays.

The Enchanted Bookshop

During the day, A Likely Story may look like any other used bookstore. But at night, it’s a place where magic happens. That’s when the characters inside the books come alive.

Six of those characters — Dorothy Gale, Robin Hood, Pollyanna, Sherlock Holmes, Heidi, and Tom Sawyer — long to help Margie, the scatterbrained owner, save her struggling store. But they’re not allowed to leave the building or be seen by human eyes. So when a pair of smugglers comes looking for a stolen necklace hidden inside one of the books, the characters are torn. Should they warn Margie and risk disappearing forever? Or can they find a way to defeat the crooks without being seen?

Featuring additional appearances by such beloved literary characters as the Queen of Hearts, Long John Silver, and Doctor Dolittle, this charming comedy celebrates the joy of reading in a fresh, fun-filled way.

Love, Lies, and the Doctor’s Dilemma

Love, Lies, and the Doctors Dilemma

The first ‘play’ of the new season a comedy/drama by Michael & Susan Parker, Directed by Larry Mitchell

Performance Dates: Sept 20, 21, 22, 27, *28, 29, Oct 4, 5, 6, 2019

Joan Scheller lives with the great love of her life, Sandy. In an effort to hide her relationship, she introduces him as her psychiatrist. One little white lie leads to another. Before long, Vinny the Enforcer, a quintessential Italian mobster, masquerades as her security guard, while her son, Chris, is forced to wear a dress and become her daughter Christina. Further complications occur when her new neighbor, Rachael, whose life appears to be a series of catastrophes, creates chaos and confusion wherever she goes. “The Doctor” is in. Has Joan created a monster? Everyone wants a session. Olivia wants to discuss her love life, Rachael wants to know why she’s such a disaster, and Vinny wants to discuss his work as an “Enforcer.” Sandy is forced to listen and give misguided advice, which, to everyone’s surprise, seems to work. But what about love? Of course there’s Joan and Sandy, if they can survive Joan’s white lies; then there’s Rachael, who is strongly attracted to Chris, if he can survive her mayhem. Finally, there’s Olivia, who hires Vinny away from the mob to be her personal security guard (With benefits?). Little white lies create mistaken identities and chaos in this enchanting love story.
