Barefoot in the Park

Auditions for Neil Simon's
Barefoot in the Park
June 28 & 29

The Chatham Players will hold auditions for Neil Simon’s romantic comedy, Barefoot in the Park on Wednesday, June 28th and Thursday, June 29th at 7:30pm. All auditions will occur at The Chatham Playhouse 23 North Passaic Ave. Production dates are October 6 thru 21, 2017 with rehearsals to begin mid-August. Michael Hegarty directs.

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. "A BUBBLING, RIB-TICKLING COMEDY." - The New York Times "Critic weeps joyfully...I don't think anybody stopped laughing while the curtain was up last evening." - New York Daily News
