Auditions open for Moffat’s return to theatre

AUDITIONS for the first play performance at Moffat’s Old Well Theatre for two years will get underway next week.

‘The Odd Couple’ by Neil Simon has been a ‘hugely successful’ play, film and TV series re-enacted all over the world.

It is based around two men with very different personalities, who share an apartment in New York.

One, Oscar, is loud, and a bit of a slob – while the other, Felix, is a little OCD and a tidiness fanatic.

They are forced together when Felix’s marriage breaks up, but nothing goes smoothly.

Co-director Graham Black said: “We are really into the swing of opening up the theatre again after covid – rehearsals for the panto are underway, and The Odd Couple will be our first play performance for two years.”

Auditions will take place at the theatre at 7.30 pm on both October 7 and 14.

Graham added: “We already have some new members who have joined recently, so this is a great opportunity for people to dip their toe in the water – or to get back into drama after a break.

“There are two versions of the Odd Couple – the male version as above, and a female version (with Olive and Florence instead of Oscar and Felix).”

Graham and fellow director Lorne Campbell, pictured above, will only decide which version they will go for after the auditions.

Graham said: “There’s plenty of scope for both men and women who are interested.

“It is even possible that we might do both, which might well be a world first if it happens!”
