Auditions for Neil Simon’s BAREFOOT IN THE PARK at Wichita Community Theatre will be held on July 25 at 7 pm and July 26 at 2 pm at the theater.

SYNOPSIS:
In Neil Simon’s timeless “laugh out loud” comedy, Paul and Corie Bratter are newlyweds who are realizing the honeymoon is over. He’s a serious young lawyer and she’s a free-spirited bride. Their tiny “top-of-the-building-with-no-elevator” Manhattan apartment is perfect to keep a meddlesome mother-in-law away. But with bad plumbing, a closet for a bedroom, a leak in the skylight, and an unexpected rooftop neighbor…well, anything that can go wrong invariably does, proving the theory that opposites really do attract in one of Broadway’s most enduring and successful romantic comedies!!

Roles available for 2 women, 4 men
Auditions will consist of cold readings from the script. Rehearsals will begin August 3.

CHARACTER DESCRIPTIONS:

Corie Bratter: Female, 20-30
a carefree young newlywed, busily trying to set up and decorate the new home she shares with her husband, Paul.

Paul Bratter: Male, 25-30
Corie’s husband, a young lawyer with a dry wit who likes to stay in his comfort zone.

Ethel Banks: Female, 50-69
Corie’s cautious mother who is willing to endure anything for her daughter, even a strange escapade around New York City.

Victor Velasco: Male, 50-69
the Bratters’ eccentric, bohemian neighbor who lives in the attic of the brownstone, just above their apartment. Speaks with an accent.

Telephone Man: Male, 30-60

Delivery Man (Cameo): 45-65
an older man who brings wedding gifts sent to the Bratters – and is exhausted by all the flights of stairs leading up to the apartment. Very small part, one scene, no lines.

Hope to see you there!!
