The Osceola Center for the Arts is holding auditions for the Neil Simon comedy Barefoot in the Park on Sunday, March 27 and Monday, March 28 from 6 – 8 pm.  Auditions will be held at the Center and are open to the public.  All roles are unpaid.  Actors may attend either evening and will be asked to read from the script.

  • Mrs. Banks (Corie’s Mother)
  • Victor Velasco
  • Telephone Repair Man
  • Delivery Man

Barefoot in the Park takes place on the top floor of a tiny apartment in New York City, where newlyweds Corie, the free spirit, and Paul, the straight-as-an arrow lawyer, have just moved in.  When Corie decides to play matchmaker with her mother and their new neighbor-in-the attic, Velasco, everything that can go wrong soon does.  The comedy was made into a movie of the same name in 1967 starring Jane Fonda and Robert Redford.

Barefoot in the Park runs May 6-15 on Fridays and Saturdays at 7:30 pm and Sundays at 2 pm and will be directed by Jeremiah Krivinchuk.  Krivinchuk has directed The Odd Couple and Rumors at the Center and recently appeared in Hello, Dolly!
