The production will be performed by the renowned Montana Repertory Theatre, now in its 50th year. Throughout the years, the Montana Repertory Theatre has presented four plays by America’s master of comedy, Neil Simon. “It comes as no surprise, therefore, that for our fiftieth anniversary season we once again turn to Mr. Simon and produce the play that put him on the map over fifty years ago –– ‘Barefoot in the Park,’” stated Director Greg Johnson. “Fifty years ago Montana Rep began. Just over fifty years ago, Barefoot in the Park was produced on Broadway, jumpstarting a career unmatched in modern times,” Johnson stated. “We feel it is fitting in this auspicious season to honor and produce one of the true giants of the American theatre.” The box office opens at 2 p.m. Adult tickets are $20, students $10, and season ticket holders are admitted free with ticket. Advance tickets may be purchased by calling the Arts Office at 660-646-1173. Auditorium doors open at 2:30 p.m. with season ticket holders seated first; then advance ticket purchasers followed by box office ticket purchasers.
