As part of the Big Rapids Festival of the Arts, STAGE-M is preforming Neil Simon’s “The Odd Couple” from Thursday, February 9th to Saturday, February 11th at 7:30pm each night at the Crossroads Charter Academy Auditorium. They will also have a Sunday show on February 12th at 2:30pm.
The Odd Couple has been a pop culture phenomenon in the fifty years since its premiere, which occurred during Lyndon Johnson’s presidency, before Neil Armstrong reached the moon, and when the Beatles were still together. Laugh at the classic tale of the slovenly Oscar and the uptight Felix as they try to share Oscar’s bachelor apartment while coping with their recent divorces. This peculiar pair, with decidedly different approaches to life, to love – and yes, to housework, has been entertaining audiences with side-splitting laughter and classic comedy for nearly 50 years.
Tickets are available in advance by calling STAGE-M at 231-592-TIXX. Tickets will also be available at Patterson’s Flowers, The Old Pioneer Store and Emporium, and Great Lake Book and Supply. For more information, please visit the Festival of the Arts webpage.
