Brewery Lane Theatre Group has added two extra nights of performances of Neil Simon’s comedy “The Odd Couple” due to the huge demand for tickets.
The Theatre Group reports that tickets for the original eight night performances sold out in record time so they decided to add two extra dates.
The show’s opening night is this Thursday, November and its original closing night was scheduled to be next Thursday, November 22.
The extra dates are Monday and Tuesday, November 26 and 27.
Brewery Lane Theatre Group PRO Linda Fahy said tickets for the extra performances can been purchased by contacting Carrick-on-Suir Heritage Centre at (051) 640200. They cost €15 and curtains rise at 8.15pm.
“These seats are expected to sell out quickly so call today to book and avoid disappointment,” she advised.
Visitors to the show will also be treated to an art exhibition in the Theatre’s Kiln and Tearoom galleries showcasing the creative works of Carlow artist Trudi Doyle and talented up and coming local artist Paddy Batley, who is a student at Carrick-on-Suir CBS Secondary School.
Trudi Doyle will be exhibiting in the Kiln Area Gallery her collection of interiors, landscapes, figurative work and experimental textural abstract artwork in watercolours, pastels, acrylics, oils and mixed media.
