Theatre Reprise! is holding auditions for their inaugural production, Neil Simon's OSCAR & FELIX: A NEW LOOK AT THE ODD COUPLE.
America's comic mastermind has updated his classic comedy THE ODD COUPLE, bringing the trials and tribulations of Felix Under and Oscar Madison to the present day. Those who love the original version will laugh all over again at the classic characters in an all-new setting, the first production of this new version in the Louisville area.
Produced by Craig Nolan Highley and Jeremy Gutierrez, the show will be directed by Jason Cooper and staged managed by Janice Walter.
They are casting for the roles of:
Julia Castazuelo - Female, Latina - Oscar & Felix's giggly upstairs neighbor, one of a pair of Spanish sisters. She is a widow.
Inez Costazuelo - Female, Latina - Oscar & Felix's giggly upstairs neighbor, one of a pair of Spanish sisters. She is a divorcée.
Speed - Male - One of Oscar's Poker buddies. Gruff and Sarcastic, often picking on Vinnie & Murray
Murray - Male - A NYPD policeman, one of Oscar and Felix's poker buddies.
Roy - Male - One of Oscar and Felix’s poker buddies. Oscar's accountant. Roy has a dry wit but is less acerbic than Speed.
Vinnie - Male - One of Oscar and Felix’s poker buddies. Vinnie is mild-mannered and henpecked, making him an easy target for Speed's verbal barbs.
Auditions will consist of cold readings from the script and will be held at the home of Jeremy Gutierrez, 517 Lyndale Ave. 40222 on Monday April 15 at 7 pm until finished.
Performances will be at The Bard's Town, June 27-July 6. More information can be found here.
