Barefoot in th Park Audition Notice

Auditions for Barefoot in the Park will be held on February 18 & 19, 2019 located at the Playhouse. Both audition times will be at 7:00pm. There are parts available for 4 males and 2 females.

Paul and Corie Bratter are newlyweds in every sense of the word. He’s a straight-as-an-arrow lawyer and she’s a free spirit always looking for the latest kick. Their new apartment is her most recent find – too expensive with bad plumbing and in need of a paint job. After a six-day honeymoon, they get a surprise visit from Corie’s loopy mother and decide to play matchmaker during a dinner with their neighbor-in-the-attic, Velasco, where everything that can go wrong, does. Paul just doesn’t understand Corie, as she sees it. He’s too staid, too boring, and she just wants him to be a little more spontaneous. Running “barefoot in the park” would be a start…

"Barefoot in the Park" is directed by Laura Brewster and performance dates will be April  April 5, 6, April 12, 13 and 14.

Tickets are now on sale for "Character Lines"!

Tickets are now on sale for "Character Lines"!

"Character Lines" tells the story of Kit and Linda, who had shared a life together as they struggled for recognition as writers. Now, seven years later, Linda, who has become a successful novelist, is on a book promotion tour, and visits Kit in the small Tennessee town to which he has retreated. Their meeting is awkward at first—she radiates the savvy and energy of success in a high-powered world, while he has adjusted to the unchallenging routine of small-town life. But, as they begin to confide in each other, it becomes apparent that Linda, for all her acclaim and financial success, has not found the fulfillment she seeks, while Kit, who is still writing and carrying on a satisfying affair with his landlady's daughter, has come to terms with his hopes and dreams.

"Character Lines" is directed by Marirene Pankratz.  Show dates are February 15-16 and February 22-24, 2019.

You can get your tickets by clicking here, or at the Playhouse on performance dates.
