Announcing auditions for The Odd Couple the female version – Hackensack, NJ

Announcing auditions for Machoola Productions November 2010 production of The Odd Couple the female version.

In this adaptation of Neil Simon’s 1965 Tony Award Winning comedy, Olive Madison, a successful television producer and slob, and Florence Unger, a meticulous housekeeper, superb cook and decorator, are complete opposites and are thrown together when Flo breaks up with her husband.

Seeking 6 women age 32 – 38 for the following roles:

Olive Madison – A successful television producer. She is intelligent, attractive, and wisecracking, with a good sense of humor – and she’s a complete slob when it comes to her surroundings. She has an encyclopedic understanding of sports, is a complete pushover for her ex-husband, and a good friend.

Florence (Flo) Unger – is attractive, a neat freak and has just broken up with her husband. She takes herself very seriously, likes to clean, decorate and cook and is very good at all three. Flo is also intelligent, although she doesn’t realize it, warm-hearted (in her own way), but has no sense of humor (at least about herself) – she does NOT make jokes.

Sylvie – is 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. Oh, yes, she is pregnant in the last scene.

Renee – Sylvie’s best friend, tells it like it is, especially when she points out Olive’s failings as a hostess – and then Flo’s. She is single and dating a doctor.

Vera – is 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. Vera is married to Harry – and they are off to Miami in the middle of July because they can get better rates!

Mickey – is a police officer, who is down-to-earth, plain talking, and has a good understanding of people. Sometimes she can take the “police bit” too far and she tries very hard to be in control of all situations.

Auditions will be held at the Hackensack Cultural Arts Center 39 Broadway in Hackensack, NJ, on Monday September 13th & Tuesday September 14th starting at 6:30pm – 9pm. No appointment is necessary we will see people on a first come first serve basis. Please prepare a short, memorized comedic monologue. Callbacks will be held on Thursday September 16th
