RVCC SETS STUDENT PRODUCTION OF BAREFOOT IN THE PARK
Raritan Valley Community College?s (RVCC) Visual and Performing Arts Department will stage a student production of Neil Simon?s Barefoot in the Park , November 5-8, at 8 p.m., in the Welpe Theatre at the College?s North Branch Campus. The comedy is being directed by Gloria Trombley of Bridgewater, RVCC adjunct professor.
Set in New York City in the early 1960s, Barefoot in the Park centers around newlyweds Corie and Paul Bratter. The couple is starting off married life in a run-down apartment, complete with holes in the ceiling and lacking heat?in the middle of February. Paul is a straight-laced young attorney who has just landed his first position in a law firm. His bride, however, is a far more spontaneous free spirit who is focused on having a long honeymoon. In addition to adjusting to married life, the couple must contend with an oddball neighbor, Victor Velasco, and Corie?s well-meaning, single, doting mother.
The student cast includes:
Corie Bratter - Katie McGillick of Flemington
Telephone Repair Man ?Harry Pepper? - Karl Jacobsen of Clinton
Delivery Man (from Lord & Taylor) - Alex Agisilaov of Madison
