"The Odd Couple," opened on Broadway in 1965 and won the Tony Award for Best Play.

This comedy is the well-known story of Oscar Madison, "divorced, broke, and sloppy," who takes in his friend, Felix Unger, a whining, obsessive, hypochondriac who has been thrown out by his wife. As the two men attempt to live in semi-peaceful co-existence, they rapidly drive each other crazy and eventually "call it quits."

Performances will be at 7:30 on Friday, Nov. 12; Saturday, Nov. 13; Friday, Nov. 19 and Saturday, Nov. 20. Matinee performances will be at 2:30 p.m. on Sunday, Nov. 14 and Sunday, Nov. 21.

The production features Bruce Grove as Oscar Madison and Erik Murray as Felix Unger. The poker players are played by Patrick Fee as Murray, Sean Masten as Roy, Chris Walmsley as Vinnie, and Byron Green as Speed. The Pigeon Sisters are played by Erica Tecce and Felicia Tuttle. Assistant Director is Sarah Brothers, Stage managers are Holly Baldwin and Kimberly Lee, and light/sound technician is Krystal Wilson.

This production is the third in a season dedicated to the 40th anniversary of Chesapeake College. Tickets will be available at the door, and are $10 for general admission and $8 for students/senior citizens. For more information, please call 410-822-5400, ext. 278.
