Thief River Falls Area Community theater performs Barefoot in the park

Valentine’s Dinner Theater Hosted by TRFACT:  Barefoot in the Park

Paul and Corie Bratter are newlyweds in every sense of the word.  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.  

A Valentine’s Dinner Theater: Barefoot in the Parkwill be presented by the Thief River Falls Area Community Theater on February 12, 13, and 14 at the Eagles Club at 305 Red Lake Boulevard in Thief River Falls.  Tickets are $25 each and are available at Digikey’s East Entrance in Thief River Falls during business hours and online at www.trfact.org

Seating is general admission, and the doors will open each evening at 6:00 p.m. with the show starting at 7:00 p.m.

The romantic comedy classic by Neil Simon will be performed by an all-star cast that includes Rob Burkel, Sherry Knott, Scott Pream, Carl Dahlberg, Jon Mansk and Alyssa Novak.   Directed by Gretchen Weinrich, with lighting and sets by Carl Dahlberg, costumes and props by Jane Anderson, and sound by Bruce Elseth.

The menu will feature a pasta bar with both red and white meat sauces, salad, bread sticks and dessert of brownie bites and mini cheese cakes. A cash bar is also available.  Catering is by Becky Carlson of Broadway Station.  

Listen to Director Gretchen Weinrich on Pioneer 90.1 on Tuesday, February 5 at 3:05 pm or to the podcast on our website afterwards!


“Critic weeps joyfully…I don’t think anybody stopped laughing while the curtain was up last evening.” – New York Daily News

This production is made possible in part by a grant from the Northwest Minnesota Arts Council with Legacy Amendment funding through the vote of Minnesotans in 2008.
