"Odd Couple" coming to Colonnade in Ringgold
Making their directing debut, Charles and Kristin Nalley of Fr3lance Productions present “The Odd Couple,” to be performed at The Colonnade for two weekends in October.
In conjunction with their inaugural show, Fr3lance Productions is donating proceeds from the matinee performance on Oct. 20 to the American Cancer Society.
Charles said that, along with the donation, they and the American Cancer Society are sponsoring a barbecue for guests in-between the matinee and evening performance, as well as a “head shaving” party in honor of their friend and fellow actress, 19-year-old Kandis Guice, who was diagnosed with leukemia on Sept. 11. Several friends and family members have volunteered to shave their heads, but the venue is open to anyone.
“We just want to let her know she's not alone,” Nalley said. “The cancer is treatable and has a 90 percent cure rate. She's going to be fine, but we still want to support her and her family all we can during this time and do all we can to encourage cancer research awareness.”
Guice's boyfriend, Andrew Boone, who portrays Oscar Madison in “The Odd Couple,” said Kandis is in good spirits and is very grateful for all the support. Boone and Guice met while performing “Beauty and the Beast” (she was Belle; he was Beast) and soon became a couple afterwards. Guice is a regular performer at The Colonnade and has been in many productions.
