The Angelina Arts Alliance is proud to present Barefoot in The Park as part of its annual Premier Series of performing arts. The event will take place on Tuesday, February 28 at 7:30 p.m. at the Temple Theater on the Angelina College Campus.

Performed by the Montana Repertory Theatre, this Neil Simon classic romantic comedy explores love, relationship, and marriage—the pangs of loss and the joy of reunion. Newlyweds Corie and Paul Bratter set up house in their New York apartment, a dysfunctional fifth-floor walkup. Corie is playful, impetuous, and thrilled with the new adventure of married life. Paul, a conservative young attorney, keeps his emotions in check while focusing on his budding career rather than his marriage. Sparks fly as Corie and Paul’s relationship is tested. Can this nascent marriage be saved?

We invite you to join us for the always-incredible journey of live theatre. Tickets are limited for Barefoot in the Park and are available at the Temple Theater box office. Prices range from $30 to $45 each. Any unsold tickets will be offered at a 50% discount beginning one hour prior to the performance.

If they cannot find an empty seat, the $20 will be refunded.
