HUTCHINSON, Kan. – Stage 9 Hutch is set to present Neil Simon’s Barefoot in the Park, March 9th-11th and 16th-18th at Stage 9 in Downtown Hutchinson. This beloved comedy is not only hilariously funny.

Paul and Corie Bratter are newlyweds in every sense of the word. 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, Velasco, where everything that can go wrong does.

All performances take place at 7:30 p.m. Find tickets and information online at
