Now that the gala is over, it’s time to run Barefoot in the Park!

Barefoot in the Park runs June 8 until June 26.

Rehearsals started this week for Barefoot in the Park, our third show in the centennial season at the Ivoryton Playhouse.

Who can resist a comedy from the world’s most successful playwright – Neil Simon.  Book your tickets today, make plans to have dinner before the show with friends and come to the Playhouse for a throughly enjoyable summer evening. 

If you want to run barefoot, you’ll always find someone at the Playhouse to join you!

Dear people from the Playhouse,
 
First of all congratulations on your 100th anniversary.
 
I want to send an email because my family attended last Sundays celebration activities and most of all my almost 3 year old daughter had a great time. This was her first time in a theater and she was overwhelmed. She loved the jugglers and the magic show. She is still talking about them and can’t wait to see them again.
 
Thank you so much for organizing this great event and giving my daughter her first theater experience  We will be back!
 
Regards,
 
L.B.
Ivoryton
