The Odd Couple Female Version Auditions

TheatreWorks Community Players is now casting "The Odd Couple," Female Version, a comedy by Neil Simon. Synopsis: Unger and Madison are at it again! Florence Unger and Olive Madison, that is, in Neil Simon's hilarious contemporary comic classic: the female version of "The Odd Couple." Instead of the poker party that begins the original version, Ms. Madison has invited the girls over for an evening of Trivial Pursuit. The Pidgeon sisters have been replaced by the two Constanzuela brothers. But the hilarity remains the same.

Auditions  will be held on January 4 from 5 to 7 PM and January 6 from 10 AM to 12 PM.  You may prepare a monologue or you will be offered something to read.  We are in search of six females and two males for the following roles:

Olive Madison (Lead): Female, 18+
A successful television producer; she is intelligent, attractive, and wisecracking, with a good sense of humor, and she’s a complete slob; she has an encyclopedic understanding of sports.

Florence (Flo) Unger (Lead): Female, 18+
Attractive, very well-groomed, and neat; has just broken up with her husband; she takes herself very seriously, likes to clean, decorate, and cook; she is intelligent and warm-hearted, but has no sense of humor (at least about herself).
 
Sylvie (Supporting): Female, 18+
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; and, yes, she is pregnant in the last scene.
 
Renee (Supporting): Female, 18+
Sylvie's best friend, can be very plain-spoken, especially when she points out Olive's failings as a hostess--and then Flo's; she is single and dating a doctor.
 
Vera (Supporting): Female, 18+
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.
 
Mickey (Supporting): Female, 18+
A police officer, who is down-to-earth, plain-talking, and has a good understanding of people; she tries very hard to be in control of all situations.
 
Manolo Costazuela (Supporting): Male, 18+
Handsome, very well-groomed, and Spanish with a Castilian accent; he is every woman's dream date and showers both Olive and Flo with attention; he must have good comic timing, as he gets very emotional; he is sensitive and appreciates Florence's sensitivity.
 
Jesus Costazuela (Supporting): Male, 18+
Manolo’s younger brother; also very handsome, well-groomed, excellent posture, very romantic; he also gets very emotional and truly appreciates Florence.
