Review for The Odd Couple:
The hilarious plot centers on a pair of mismatched characters who are forced to cohabitate. One is careless and sloppy, the other a neurotic neat freak. Together they make arguably the most memorable roommates ever written, in league with Lavern and Shirley or Bert and Ernie. Simon adapted the play in 1985 to feature a pair of female roommates, and Felix and Oscar became Florence and Olive.
Auditions for Go, Dog, Go!, a Youth Theatre production, will be held Monday and Tuesday, Dec. 16 and 17 at 4:30 p.m. Actors in grades 4-12 are encouraged to audition. Callbacks will be held on Thursday, Dec. 19. Rehearsal schedule is to be determined. Chuck Tuttle directs. Performances are Feb. 21-March 2, with school shows on the mornings of Feb. 27 and 28.
Review for Go, Dog, Go!:
This play – adapted from P.D. Eastman’s classic children’s book, renowned for its ability to generate fun, learning, adventure, and surprise with a minimum of words – comes to life on stage in an exploration of movement, color and space. The dogs delve into life with wondrous gusto and loopy anarchy, creating a visual feast for the audience, honoring the joyous simplicity of the world around us. This world of doggy fun features red dogs, blue dogs, big dogs, little dogs – all kinds of wonderful dogs – riding bicycles, scooters and roller skates and driving all sorts of vehicles on their way to a big dog party help on top of a tree! Guaranteed to have you howling with laughter! The original Go, Dog. Go! was written more than 50 years ago and edited by Dr. Seuss himself.
