BAREFOOT IN THE PARK
by Neil Simon
Paul and Corie Bratter are newlyweds in every sense of the word. He’s a straight-as-an-arrow lawyer and she’s a free spirit always looking for the latest kick. Their new apartment is her most recent find – too expensive with bad plumbing and in need of a paint job.
After a six-day honeymoon, they get a surprise visit from Corie’s loopy mother and decide to play matchmaker during a dinner with their neighbor-in-the-attic, Velasco, where everything that can go wrong, does. Paul just doesn’t understand Corie, as she sees it. He’s too staid, too boring, and she just wants him to be a little more spontaneous. Running “barefoot in the park” would be a start…

Abrams Spotlight Productions Inc. will hold auditions for its fall show, “Cabaret,” the flashy musical set in a 1920s Berlin nightclub. Rated PG-13, “Cabaret” explores the dark, heady, and tumultuous life of Berlin’s natives and expatriates as Germany slowly yields to the emerging Third Reich. Cliff, a young American writer newly arrived in Berlin, is immediately taken by English singer Sally Bowles. Meanwhile, Fräulein Schneider, proprietor of Cliff and Sally’s boarding house, tentatively begins a romance with Herr Schultz, a mild-mannered fruit seller who happens to be Jewish.
Performers will have two opportunities to audition, from 6-8 p.m. Monday, June 18, or 6-8 p.m. Wednesday, June 20, at the Byng Community Theater, 5852 Maple St., Abrams. Anyone interested in a principal role should prepare a 2-minute vocal audition and provide sheet music or a karaoke track.
Those interested in supporting roles or chorus roles will be asked to sing as a group. Individuals are encouraged to wear comfortable clothes and shoes to participate in dance auditions. Anyone 16 and older is encouraged to audition.
