M&D Playhouse announces auditions for Barefoot in the Park
Barefoot in the Park is one of Neil Simon’s most beloved comedies, Barefoot in the Park, directed by Hannah-Jo Weisberg. Newlyweds Corie and Paul Bratter are over the moon to begin their life together in their new apartment in Manhattan. It may be small and a six-flight climb, the heating may be busted and snow may be falling through the skylight, but nothing can quash their newlywed bliss.
Auditions will be held at the Eastern Slope Inn Playhouse at 2760 White Mountain Highway in North Conway on December 6 and 7 at 6:30 pm. Auditioners are asked to prepare a short comedic monologue (selections from the play are welcomed) and may be asked to do a cold read from the script.
The director is looking for two women, and 4 men. Character descriptions are below.
Performance dates are February 10 through 27, Thursday, Friday, and Saturday at 7 pm, and Sunday at 3:30 pm.
