The Cutler Brother’s 19th Summer Theatre Season in Deer Lodge will kick off with one of Neil Simon’s most popular plays in “Barefoot in the Park” this May. Cutler Bros. Theatre will also produce Disney’s “Tarzan” this June and “Willy Wonka” in late July into August.
“Barefoot in the Park” is a simple story set in New York City and with a small cast. Corie Bratter (Jerrika Marjerison) and her husband Paul (Joshua Pentland) move into a “not so plush” New York high-rise and quickly discover many a problem with their new living space. Corie is energetic and spunky while Paul is more of the business-type, and these diverse personalities naturally cause some friction laying the groundwork for the play.
Jaycee Wood makes her Cutler Bros. debut and plays the overbearing mother of Corie while Steve Collins of Anaconda will play the well-traveled and witty Victor Velasco. Steve first stepped on stage in Deer Lodge last season as the rabbi in “Fiddler on the Roof.” Rounding out the cast is the phone repair man played by a Deer Lodge-favorite Tom Gomola.
Erin Jewell is directing the show making this her third directorial assignment in the last 2 years. “I’m excited for the cast, they’re small but they’ll bring a punch,” said Jewell. She went on, “Summer Theatre has become a special thing in this community and I’m happy to be at the helm for the first show of the season.”
