Barefoot in the Park follows the lives of newlyweds Paul and Corie Bratter as they adjust to married life in a tiny Greenwich Village apartment. Paul is a button-down, straight-arrow lawyer who's wound a little too tight, while Corie is an effervescent free spirit who won't let anything disturb her romantic bliss. Aside from the five-flight climb and the hole in their skylight, the Bratters must also contend with their eccentric upstairs neighbor Victor Velasco, who must go through their apartment to get to his.

A comedy by John Patrick

August 27, 28, 29



Searching for costumes for their next production, Desmond and Queenie, the local summer stock company, drop by "Opal's Antique Junque Shop." While rooting through Opal's treasures, they spot a nondescript oil painting - a still life of a dead mallard duck and an apple - and recalling an item in the morning newspaper about an old master which has disappeared from the local art museum, suddenly realize that this may be the missing canvas, for which the insurance company is offering a sizable reward. Summoning up all their acting skills, they try to charm Opal into selling the painting for a pittance, but she explains that she plans to give it to her friend, Rosie, as a birthday present, whereupon the plot thickens hilariously.

Murder's Bad, but Monday Can Kill You!

A Comedy/Mystery by Pat Cook

Directed by Rusty Henderson



12, 13, 14

19, 20, 21



Harry's back! That's right, Harry Monday, that Sam Spade wannabe in the trench coat and gumshoes, is hot and on his latest case. Does he know what he's doing? Who knows? Is he over his head? Of course. Especially when he finds three characters murdered at the Restful Glen Psychiatric Annex. Only after he arrives does he find out that all the inmates have multiple personalities. Who killed Jefferey Stadtlander? Was it the congressman, who in a crisis, becomes Edgar Allen Poe? Or maybe it was the school teacher who runs hot and cold? "Clues are falling like cigarettes in the boys bathroom," he says as he soon finds himself committed and not just to the case. The wise-cracking whodunit will have you guessing until the final red herring.
