Promotional information says the Neil Simon play explores love, relationships, marriage, and family; the pangs of loss and the joys of reunion.

The Montana Repertory Theatre, which is observing its 50th anniversary this year, has begun a nationwide tour for the play “Barefoot in the Park.” The Chillicothe presentation is the closest performance for this area.

Tickets for the public cost $20 a person; $10 for a student. Those with a Chillicothe Arts Council season membership will be admitted free of charge to Barefoot in the Park Sunday February 12.
