Cast for THE ODD COUPLE Announced

THE ODD COUPLE will be onstage at SCT from May 4–29, 2011

From Artis­tic Direc­tor Jim Cole­man — We had two evenings of great audi­tions for The Odd Cou­ple, and a ter­rific cast has been assem­bled for this clas­sic Neil Simon com­edy. It is time­less. The cast list follows:

The role of Oscar Madi­son will be acted by MICHAEL STRATFORD, who also played the Sher­iff in “Best Lit­tle Whore­house in Texas”

Oscar Madi­son is being played by MICHAEL STRATFORD, an actor that you have seen as the Sher­iff in The Best Lit­tle Whore­house in Texas”, in Kiss Me, Kate as one of the gang­sters, in Dearly Departed as the Rev­erend with irri­ta­ble bowel syn­drome, and lastly as Max Bia­ly­stock in The Pro­duc­ers! Michael is a mul­ti­ple Willie Award winner.

Felix Ungar is being played by SEAN BOCARDO, who was last seen in Dearly Departed, in a role for which he won a Willie Award.

Mur­ray is being played by a new­comer to SCT. I would like to wel­come JOEL KESTER, and truly hope that we will be see­ing more of him in the future.

Speed is being played by JAMES SNYDER, also seen in Dearly Departed, Joseph and the Amaz­ing Tech­ni­color Dream­coat, and Okla­homa! James has also a been a big help back­stage since his arrival at SCT.

Roy is being played by JOSEPH TOON, last seen as Will Parker in Okla­homa. Joseph has graced our stage in many pro­duc­tions, most notably in The Pro­duc­ers, The Full Monty, and Joseph and the Amaz­ing Tech­ni­color Dream­coat.

Vin­nie will be played by SIDUS CHOUP, who first took the SCT stage in Okla­homa!, and then worked back­stage in sup­port of Run For Your Wife.

CHRISTINA CHAVEZ NELSON, is back on our stage after an absence of many years, play­ing Gwen­dolyn Pigeon. Wel­come back, Christina!

RACHEL TIMOSH is back, act­ing in her first non-musical role, as Cecily Pigeon. Rachel has a gor­geous voice, and has thrilled our audi­ences with her singing in I Remem­ber Mama and Okla­homa!

I am also very pleased to wel­come a new direc­tor into our fold at SCT. J. LEE VOCQUE comes to us with lots of direct­ing expe­ri­ence both here in California’s Cen­tral Val­ley, and more recently in Florida. I am happy to wel­come him and his lovely wife, Karene, who is also stage man­ag­ing the show for us.

Wel­come to all — The Odd Cou­ple is going to be a laugh riot!
