Neil Simon’s Barefoot in the Park
Performances: November 8-17, 2019
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…
Our 2019-20 Season opens with the smash hit musical, Mamma Mia! This high energy production is a great opening to a season that will also feature Barefoot in the Park, Cat on a Hot Tin Roof, Beehive: the 60’s Musical, Ken Ludwig’s Leading Ladies and Guys and Dolls.
Our new season is a direct result of the feedback we received from you! The play reading committee worked hard to select shows that offered classic favorites and highly popular productions that would appeal to theatre lovers of all ages. We exist because of the longstanding support we receive from the residents of Temple and the communities of central Texas and we can never say, “Thank You,” enough.
We are so proud of the unique experience our thrust stage provides, the comfort our inviting space brings to audiences and the impact we work to provide on improving the quality of life for so many. As always, we hope you will consider joining us as a member for the coming season and again, welcome you to the Temple Civic Theatre.

The powerful play goes on.
