Neil Simon Comedy The Odd Couple Performed by Barron Spotlighters Opens Friday

The Barron Spotlighters theater group will start their run of the Neil Simon classic comedy “The Odd Couple” this Friday, October 28. This kicks off a total of six performances over two weekends. All performances will happen at the Barron Area Community Center in the theater.

Performance times are 7:30pm on both Friday and Saturday evenings, and 2:30pm on Sunday afternoons. Advance tickets can be purchased through the Spotlighters website,, or tickets are also available the day of each show at the box office. Tickets are $16 each for any of the six shows.

“The Odd Couple” is a comedy that chronicles the unconventional relationship between friends turned roommates, Oscar Madison and Felix Ungar. Throughout the course of the play, slovenly Oscar and fastidious Felix rub each other the wrong way, leading to hilarious outcomes. Their friends mean well but also provide comic relief during their poker games. This original play spawned two different television shows featuring the same characters, as well as movies and an all-female version of the play.
