Abrams Theatre Presents “The Odd Couple”

Odd CoupleAbrams Spotlight Productions, Inc. will present, The Odd Couple (Book by Neil Simon) August 12, 2016 – August 21, 2016 at The Byng Community Theater in Abrams.

This classic comedy opens as a group of the guys assembled for cards in the apartment of divorced Oscar Madison. And if the mess is any indication, it’s no wonder that his wife left him. Late to arrive is Felix Unger who has just been separated from his wife. Fastidious, depressed and none too tense, Felix seems suicidal, but as the action unfolds Oscar becomes the one with murder on his mind when the clean-freak and the slob ultimately decide to room together with hilarious results as The Odd Couple is born.

Opening night is Friday, August 12 at 7:00pm. Abrams Spotlight Productions, Inc. will be celebrating by having an Opening Night Gala. Patrons that attend opening night will receive complimentary hors d’oeuvres and drinks after the show (with the cast and crew).

Subsequent show dates are as follows:

August 13th at 1pm & 7pm
August 14th at 1pm

PANTHER PRIDE Club GOLF CLASSIC

PANTHER PRIDE Club GOLF CLASSIC
Saturday, July 30th
River Island Golf Course

It is that time of the year again. Let’s play golf to support football. I am asking you to get involved and help us to bring Panther football back to being a power in the state and the class of northeastern Wisconsin.

We started the Panther Pride Club 12 years ago to provide better equipment and playing conditions for our student athletes. Due to severe budget cuts, we are using the funds to purchase our basic needs rather than the extras that we had hoped to provide for the program.

We would like to build this event into a major alumni reunion. Obviously that depends on you and your support. Please help us to spread the word. Pass this information on to your teammates and alumni. Which team will have the most members attend. Please encourage others to attend. All proceeds are used to fund our football programs (flag football, 4-6 tackle football, middle school, and high school)

Please get involved with the Panther Pride Association. They are working hard to improve our outdoor facilities. This organization and our athletic Director have a plan and have started the projects.

Tee Time: 12:00 Noon(Registration begins at 11 AM)
Entry Fee: $65 per person in cash or check
