Announces Cast for Neil Simon’s “The Odd Couple”
PLANO, TX – North Texas Performing Arts Repertory Theatre is thrilled to announce its cast for Neil Simon’s iconic play The Odd Couple. Performances are slated for August 3-11, 2018. The cast includes veterans from the region’s top professional theatres. Leading the cast for Odd Couple will be veteran stage actors Mikey Abrams as Oscar and Shane Beeson as Felix. The play will also feature Danny Gallagher, Seth Nelson, Daniel Dean Miranda, Isabell Moon, Callie Stearns, and Ben Scheer.
The director of The Odd Couple is Jeff Swearingen. Jeff has received numerous Column Awards as a director, actor and playwright. The creative team for this production includes NTPA Repertory Theatre Program Director Daniel Dean Miranda and Stage Manager Riley Arnold.
This classic comedy opens as a group of the guys assemble for cards in the apartment of divorced Oscar Madison. And if the mess is any indication, it’s no wonder that his wife left him. Late to arrive is Felix Unger, who has just been separated from his wife. Fastidious, depressed, and tense, Felix seems suicidal, but as the action unfolds, Oscar becomes the one with murder on his mind when the clean freak and the slob ultimately decide to room together with hilarious results as The Odd Couple is born.
The Odd Couple originally opened on Broadway in 1965 and won four Tonys for Best Author (Neil Simon), Best Director (Mike Nichols), Best Actor (Walter Matthau) and Best Scenic Design. Neil Simon is known as “America’s Playwright”. His works have been nominated fifteen times for Tony Awards and won three. He also won the Pulitzer Prize for Drama. Almost every one of his thirty-plus plays has been adapted into a motion picture and he has won more Oscars and Tony awards than any writer in history.
All performances will be held at North Texas Performing Arts – Plano, which is located on the east side in the Willow Bend Mall at 6121 W Park Blvd. Suite B216, Plano 75093, near Dillard’s parking garage. The recommended age for the audience is 13 and up due to mature content. General Admission $18 EARLY BIRD (ends July 30) $20 Regular. Tickets can be purchased online at ntparep.org
