PA Players go ‘Barefoot in the Park’

Centered on the question “Do opposites attract?,” the Port Angeles Community Players present Neil Simon’s “Barefoot in the Park” for two more weekends — June 14-23 — at the playhouse, 1235 Lauridsen Blvd., Port Angeles.

Jonas Brown plays a young, straight-laced lawyer named Paul, while Marissa Wilson plays the free-spirited Cori. The two are newlyweds fresh from their honeymoon, but conflict arises when Cori desires more passion and Paul seeks a burgeoning career.

“These two really sell it as lovebirds – they are perfect in their parts,” director Barbara Frederick says.

Show organizers say the couple’s brownstone apartment with a leaking skylight, tiny bedroom and brightly painted walls become a catalyst for stress and anxiety, too.

“The apartment (designed by Ron Coffman) is very much a character in this show,” Frederick says.

Along with the pitfalls of their place, eccentric neighbor Victor Velsaco (Ken Winter) furthers tension as Cori is charmed by him while Paul distrusts him. Cori’s mother (Lynne Murphy) also crashes the wedding bliss. Martin Gutowski also plays a telephone repair man.

Performances begin at 7:30 p.m. June 14-15, 18, and 21-22; and 2 p.m. Sundays June 16 and 23.

Find advanced tickets at Brocante Antiques in downtown Port Angeles, 105 W. First St., online at www.pacommunityplayers.org or the show’s door.
