Barefoot in the Park: LFHS’ Winter Play Happening This Weekend

Barefoot in the Park: LFHS’ Winter Play Happening This Weekend

Barefoot in the Park, the winter play, debuts this Thursday and will continue through Saturday in the Little Theater. Written by Neil Simon and directed by English teacher, Mrs. Sara Dreiling, Barefoot in the Park takes you on a whimsical journey through the chaotic life of newlyweds Corie and Paul Bratter.

During the 60s, Barefoot in the Park follows free spirited Corie and serious lawyer Paul’s story. Together, they make quite an interesting duo!

Corie, played by junior Kallista Schneiderman, and Paul, played by senior Ryder Gamrath, have just returned from their honeymoon and decide to move into a tiny apartment in New York City. 

As one would imagine, having a first apartment isn’t as picture perfect as the couple would like it to be as it’s in need of multiple repairs. Thank goodness, a telephone repairman, senior Henry Laufenberg, and a package delivery man, junior Sarah Noble, come to help save the day. 

The fun continues when Corie decides to set her mom, senior Taylor Ross, up with their apartment neighbor; however, it results in utter chaos. 

Director Sara Dreiling and student directors Phoebe Twichell and Sarah Noble make sure to foster an inclusive cast environment.

“The cast community is so fun. It is a small show so it’s a smaller group, meaning we spend a lot of time together. Everyone around me is such an interesting and unique person so it’s fun to hang out with all the different types of people,” Schneiderman said. 

Rehearsals have been happening for the past two months. Now that show time is almost here, members are in the midst of tech week. 

“Tech week is so special because it’s when all the elements come together for the first time. The lights, sound, and props all become a part of the show,” Schneiderman said. 

Dreiling has also had the pleasure of being a part of this show.

“Rehearsals have always been a ton of fun but especially for this show. It really helps that the cast all gets along and is so funny together, everyone is always laughing and has created a great bond,” Dreiling said. 

Come experience the family fun in New York City this weekend, Feb.1-3. Purchase tickets online now.
