The Celtic Performing Arts Centre at The College of Piping is happy to welcome the Encore Theatre Company to its stage. This not so new troupe of players has deep roots in the East Prince area having honed their skills as members of the Kensington Theatre Company from 1990 to 2005. In 2005 the troupe was invited by the Harbourfront Theatre to become its resident theatre company, the Harbourfront Players, a successful partnership that continues today.
Now it is 2020, and change is in the air once more, as original members of the Kensington Theatre Company/Harbourfront Players, are taking to the stage again as the newly formed Encore Theatre Co. This group of oldies but goodies is pleased to present its inaugural production The Odd Couple (female version).
This timeless Neil Simon comedy puts the old adage ‘opposites attract’ to a hilarious test when prim and proper Florence Unger, recently separated, moves in with her disorganized and messy friend Olive Madison. They are joined on their journey into chaos by their weekly Trivial Pursuit gang, Mickey, Sylvie, Vera and Renee, and charmed and challenged by their neighbours the dashing Costazuela brothers.
Leave your winter woes behind, come join Florence and Olive as they experience love, lost and splattered linguini.
