Fall 2018 Community Theater Performances
Community Theater presents: THE ODD COUPLE
by Neil Simon
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 none too 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.

Kidz Theater presents: Understanding Your Pet with Dr. Marla Brett
by Andrew Frodahl
Tons of fun and physical comedy energize this truly “wild” one-act farce. Revolutionary pet therapist Dr. Marla Brett has recently developed a new pill that she claims will help people better understand and communicate with their pets. But a medical breakthrough turns into chaos as the pet owners return, suffering from an unforeseen side effect — they’re now starting to act like their animals! Skillfully written so that each actor has his or her moment in the spotlight; it’s the cat’s meow.
