Neil Simon's The Odd Couple (Female Version)

September 27-30

Tickets are on sale at SeatYourself

Students: $10.00 / Adults: $12.00 / Military or Senior: $11.00

Neil Simon’s revision of his hugely successful play,
The Odd Couple, sees the lead characters transformed
into Olive Madison and Florence Unger.
Olive and her group of girlfriends are enjoying their weekly Trivial Pursuit
night in Olive’s messy and ill-equipped apartment.
As the game continues, Florence arrives,
fresh from being dumped by her husband.
Fearful that the neurotic Florence might attempt suicide,
Olive invites her to move in as her roommate.
However, Olive and Florence have VERY different personalities.
Where Olive is messy, untidy, and unconcerned about the state of her apartment,
Florence is obsessively clean, tidy, and obsessed with hygiene.
Olive’s easy-going outlook on life soon clashes with
Florence’s highly-strung neurotic tendencies, testing their friendship to the limit.
When Olive organizes a double date with the Costazuela brothers,
their differences come to a head and sparks fly.

   The DCSD Board of Education voted unanimously to place a $66M Mill Levy Override 
and $484M Bond on the November 2023 ballot.

All seven Board directors expressed their strong support and
personal dedication to our students and our staff.

The Board also unanimously adopted a compensation resolution that will automatically
trigger if the MLO passes.
For school district staff, this means pay increases would happen automatically
should the MLO pass (with increases being paid retroactively back to July 1).

To learn more about how additional funding would benefit our schools and our staff,
 www.dcsdk12.org/funding. We also encourage you to read through the MLO/Bond plan

Special education services end when the student is no longer eligible for services, graduates, or completes his/her educational program at age 21, or moves from the district. This notification is to inform parents/guardians and former students of Douglas County School District's intent to destroy the special education records of students who exited special education services as of June 30, 2016.
