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 straight-laced attorney, and Corie has a far more spontaneous, free spirit. As the young couple contend 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 personal differences in how they approach life’s challenges. We soon find out that adjusting to married life isn’t easy!


In 1970, The Curtain Club, the local Watertown community theater group at the time, produced Barefoot in the Park. If you or someone you know was involved with the production, either on-stage or backstage, please contact (920)306-4364 for information on special offerings!
