The Watertown Players are excited to announce open auditions for the hilarious comedy, “Barefoot in the Park” written by Neil Simon. Auditions will be held at The Watertown Players Theater in The Market, 210 S. Water St, Watertown, on Saturday, August 5, from 10 am until noon. No prior acting experience or preparation for the audition is necessary. The show will be performed September 22-24, 2017, in cooperation with Samuel French, Inc.
“Barefoot in the Park” is a romantic comedy focusing on a pair of newlyweds, Corie and Paul, as they begin married life in a tiny, 5th floor walkup apartment in a Manhattan brownstone. Paul is a strait-laced attorney; Corie has a far more spontaneous, free spirit. As the young couple contends with a lack of heat, a skylight that leaks snow, several long flights of stairs, oddball neighbor Victor Velasco, and Corie’s well-meaning mother, they must also reconcile their own differences in how they approach life’s challenges.
There are 6 roles to be filled: Corie Bratter (mid 20s, female); Paul Bratter (mid 20s, male); Telephone Man (mid 30s, male); Victor Velasco (late 50s, male); Ethyl Banks (early 50s, female); and Delivery Man (non-speaking, early 60s, male).
“Barefoot in the Park” is being directed by Jennie Ortega, assisted by Jim Steffl with Gie Stenberg as Stage Manager.
