SOUTH HAMPTON ROADS, Va. – (Oct. 30, 2006) – Tidewater Community College Theatre opens its 2006-‘07 season with a production of Neil Simon’s classic comedy, Barefoot in the Park, which first opened on Broadway in 1963.

The action of the play revolves around a newlywed couple with differing views on life. Free-spirited, high-energy Corie, the wife, wants to squeeze every ounce of enjoyment and adventure from each day. Practical and proper Paul, the husband, just wants to keep his suits crisply pressed and focus on his new law career. These polar approaches to life bring about the conflict and comedy in Simon’s theatrical jewel.

The production runs Nov. 8-11 at 8 p.m. and Nov. 12 at 2 p.m. at TCC Studio Theater on the Chesapeake Campus. The production then moves to the TCC Roper Performing Arts Center on the Norfolk Campus for a run Nov. 16-18 at 8 p.m. For information and reservations, call 822-5219 or TCC’s Information Center, 822-1122.
