PRESS RELEASE   October 10, 2014

The CenterStage Theater Department at Walsh Jesuit High School presents its Fall dramatic production of Neil Simon’s “The Odd Couple,” November 13th at 7:00PM, November 14th and 15th at 7:30PM, and matinee performances November 15th and 16th at 2:00PM. They will also present Simon’s “The Odd Couple, Female Version” the very next week on November 20th at 7:00PM, November 21st and 22nd at 7:30PM, with matinee performances on November 22nd and 23rd at 2:00PM in the school’s theatre, located at 4550 Wyoga Lake Road, in Cuyahoga Falls. There will be two preview performances on November 12th, and 19th at 7PM.

Both versions have been performed on Broadway, most recently with Nathan Lane and Matthew Broderick in the lead roles. Walter Mathau and Jack Lemmon starred in the original motion picture. The female version starred Sally Struthers and Rita Moreno. The comedic storyline is based around two divorcees, one whoose sloppiness wreaks havoc on a room with the speed of a tornado and the other, a hypochondriac whose obsession with cleanliness borders on insanity!

The CenterStage cast has Oscar Madison as John Bukovac of Kent, and from Owen Salyers of Akron as Felix. Julia Barr of Medina plays Florence, the female version of Felix and Caitlin Krause from Hinckley plays Olive. The comedy also includes some fabulous supporting roles such as the Pigeon Sisters, played by Madison Gordon of Peninsula, and Cameryn Zupon of Solon. Possibly even more outrageous are the Costazuela brothers from the female version, performed by Robert Trushel of Stow, and Chris Sekeres from Akron. Rounding out the cast is Jacob Morris, Isabella Bertolini and Samantha Toth from Akron, Nicole Davessar from Brecksville, Jessica Coury from Broadview Heights, Brad Rinehart from Copley, Matt Blasio of Sagamore Hills, and Liam LeBlanc from Solon.

Tickets are $10.00 for adults and $7.00 for students and Senior Citizens groups. Senior group discounts are also available as well as for school groups.
