Minnesota State University, Mankato Department of Theatre & Dance News Release
MANKATO – Minnesota State University, Mankato’s Department of Theatre & Dance will open the 55th season of Highland Summer Theatre with “Barefoot in the Park.” The production is made possible by a generous sponsorship from TRIO Student Support Services at Minnesota State Mankato.
In the play, Paul and Corie Bratter are newlyweds. He’s a straight-as-an-arrow lawyer and she’s a free spirit always looking for the latest kick. Their new apartment is her most recent find – too expensive with bad plumbing and in need of a paint job. After a six-day honeymoon, they get a surprise visit from Corie’s loopy mother and decide to play matchmaker during a dinner with their neighbor-in-the-attic, Valesco, where everything that can go wrong does.
“Barefoot in the Park” runs May 25-28 at 7:30 p.m. in the Andreas Theatre at the Earley Center for Performing Arts at Minnesota State University, Mankato. Tickets are $17 regular price and $15 for seniors ages 65 and older, children under 16 and groups of 15 or more.
Highland Summer Theatre will continue with “Nunsense” from June 8-11. Season tickets are available for both shows through May 28 for only $35.
The Box Office is open 4-6 p.m. weekdays in the lobby of the Performing Arts Center or buy single tickets online at MSUTheatre.com. Call the Box Office at 507-389-6661.
