With the unseasonable warm weather we’ve been having this season, being barefoot in the park might not seem so very strange. And if that’s not your style, regardless of the weather, then there’s a perfect alternative for you!
How about a close-to-home production of the 1964 Tony Award Winner “Barefoot In The Park?” The show begins October 5th, and runs through the first half of October.
And you don’t have to travel into NYC, or spend a lot of money. Directed by Steve Lemenille, and produced by Kay Macrae, “Barefoot in The Park” is the latest production by the very local and very talented Westfield Community Players. This wacky, 1960’s story is about very different people approaching life in very different ways but finding a way to make it work between them. While spontaneity comes naturally for her, being barefoot in the park would be unthinkable for him. The ensuing clash makes for great entertainment.
Located at 1000 North Avenue West, on the corner of Edgewood Avenue and North Avenue West in Westfield, the Westfield Community Players (WCP) theater company has been around since 1934. During that time the company has presented more than 200 comedies, dramas, musicals and mysteries to area residents.
The WCP offers hands-on participation for those wishing to learn more about various aspects of live theatrical production and performance, making it a great place to not only SEE the arts, but to PARTICIPATE in them, as well. They thrive on an open-casting policy, where everyone and anyone can audition for all scheduled plays. They also depend on the wondrous talent and time of volunteers to keep the theater alive.
With the quality productions offered at the WCP, it’s a great opportunity to enjoy a day or night out, reveling in the arts, without straying far from home or dealing with the cost or inconvenience of traveling. And with the many, many fabulous places to eat in town, it’s super-easy to enjoy dinner and a show without ever leaving the area!
