The Odd Couple is coming to Chewelah in January

(PRESS RELEASE/Park Avenue Players)

NEW YEAR, NEW SHOW: Park Avenue Players will premiere beloved “The Odd Couple” on January 17 at the Center for the Arts…

Deanna Barnes is excited about “The Odd Couple.” No. We’re not talking about your parents. Deanna has been a long fixture of Park Avenue Players and has played many wonderful characters. But now she gets to direct those characters. Deanna is currently directing her first play: Neil Simon’s “The Odd Couple.” Many remember the hit television show, but it was preceded by a movie and a Broadway play.

First appearing on Broadway in 1965, the play tells the story of Oscar (Bill Barnes) and Felix (Daniel Greene) who become the most unlikely roommates in this classic comedy. The play opens at the Chewelah Center for the Arts in January of 2020 with a 7 p.m. show time on January 17, 18, 24, and 25 and a 2 p.m. show time on January 19 and 26. Tickets may be purchased on-line at or at the following outlets; Akers United Drugs and Valley Drug Company for $10. Tickets may be purchased at the door on show dates for $12.

Deanna says; “Things have just fallen into place since day one” and she has really been bitten by the directing bug. She and the cast hope you will join her for this laugh-filled production featuring many Park Ave regulars. For more information, please visit the Chewelah Center for the Arts on Facebook.
