2:00 pm: El Campanil Hosts The Vagabond Players
The Odd Couple (Female Version) is just what it says: Felix and Oscar become Florence and Olive, mismatched roommates in Neil Simon’s adaptation of his own play. There’s smart, audience-friendly dialogue and kooky characters. The play opens at Olive’s sloppy apartment as she hosts a ladies’ night. Florence shows up late and upset because she’s just broken up with her husband. With nowhere else to go, she moves in with Olive. The scene is set. A hilarious contemporary classic.
Tickets: All Ages
Adults: $15 Seniors (62& Over): $13 Youth (17 & Under): $10
